Nice roof terrace, good food

Sat upstairs on the terrace for lunch. I had the Octopus, which was stunning. My partner had a tomato salad, basically just tomatoes.. Fair price, friendly waiter and great views.

The restaurant sits very close to the sea and has a helpful menu outside, which is in several languages. They offer a €10 full meal, with a limited selection of dishes, or for slightly more, you can choose from the full range. The restaurant is very clean and discreetly divided into lower dining areas and a roof terrace, so it... More

I have reviewed this restaurante before but as we visit it many times between the months of November and April each year I thought I would write a more updated review. The restaurant continues to offer its €10 complete menu but, instead of jus offering one main meal selection there is now a choice of five my favourite being the... More

The dishes of the day are 8,5 Euro each, reasonable, but the aperatives, like olives, fish and cheese that they offer without asking you makes the whole meal far much expensive. Service was so slow. We went there at 8:30 pm and when we started to eat it was almost 10:00 pm.

We ate here on two evenings while staying locally. On both occasions the food was superb and the service was excellent. I would recommend the beef steak 'Finalmente' style (which was extremely succulent and tender) followed by the almond tart (which really needs to be tasted to be believed!!) I think this restaurant deserves a much higher ranking as it... More

Had a reasonable meal here, probably would have been better if busier. Service was good, food not as hot as I would like, overall was more expensive than better meals we have had in Manta Rota, so a bit disappointed.

We visited this restaurant several times during our week in Manta Rota (August 2013) and returned for our final meal here. We ate upstairs, on the open terrace each time. The staff were great, friendly, helped us navigate the menu, and when we couldn't decide between deserts, brought both for us and only charged us for one.
