Nice lunch, service not too good

We were a large group with a varied choice from the menu. Sat outside on a lovely December day. Food was good but first person (me) had nearly finished before the last person (my wife) was served.

My friend and I called at the Tamarillo for a cool, large glass of beer on our way to the beach as it was advertising it's happy hour price of 1euro and guess happy hour lasts longer than an hour! We didn't eat here as weren't hungry at the time but the food looked good! Good service, lovely view, quenching... More

We wanted somewhere we could see the sea and watch the world go by for lunch and when we saw the sign for €1 pints for happy hour we thought we'd have a drink and look at their menu. The menu is very good with everything from fish, to steak, pizzas and fresh kebabs to salads. We had a wonderful... More

This restaurant is at the side of Fratellis, and maybe loses out to its larger neighbour. The food here is very good, we had cannelloni and it was made using rolled pasta sheets rather than tubes but it was freshly made and excellent. The staff are welcoming and very friendly, whilst browsing the menu in the afternoon one of the... More

Ate here on second night of holiday. I had squid and prawn kebab served with nice plate of fresh veg - really delicious. Wife had veg pizza which she enjoyed. Washed down with bottle or two of Vino Verde. Excellent value and friendly service. Free bottle of house wine on next visit. Good location near seafront. Would recommend.

The staff here are very friendly, very smiley and helpful. The beers were only 1 Euro for a pint. The view from the restaurant is excellent, being very close to the beach. The food was also very reasonably priced and very tasty.

This was a very good meal within sight of the beach. We had a mixed meat kebab and a shrimp Caesar salad. Both were excellent. We also had a free bottle of nice wine. The service was extremely good and very attentive. Relaxed but not too slow either. We will definitely go back.

We had planned to visit another restaurant on the last night of our holiday but strangely for a Saturday it was closed!! I am glad it was as we went to the one next door- Tamarillo. The staff were so friendly and welcoming we instantly felt we had made a good choice before any food had been tasted. Great menu... More

We were walking along browsing restaurants when we came upon this little gem! Full of local men in their 50's and 60's - well if the locals rate it then it cant be bad!!! Food is mainly simple and rustic but tasty and filling! Then as a nice little surprise the locals started a traditional sing-a-long!!! Great fun all round... More
