As one of the most noteable resturants in the area we went with high expectations. We have dined here often over the past 5 years both menu del dia and la cena in the evening so we knew what to expect, Wrong! I can't be doing with grubby menus, that's what we got, dirty and sellotaped together in a well... More

Good fresh food,well cooked, great atmosphere and attentive service, everything you would want from a restaurant. Do try the fresh fish, delicious and a speciality of the house. You will need to book for the evening as they do get busy.

We didn't fancy the set menu at 21 euro each so ordered from the main menu. Didn't think you could go far wrong with chicken breast and a medium fillet steak. We were asked if we would like a sauce with them. As the menu stated the steak came with a sauce I said yes and my wife asked for... More

We went here for a menu del dia yesterday just for a change from our usual restaurant La Antipodea just up the road as it had been recommended to us by friends. The choice of each course was excellent.....4-5 different dishes.....not to mention a plate of toast with alioli and fresh tomatoes to start with. I had onion soup, followed... More

A quiet sunny little town with a few roadside restaurants, this was a little piece of heaven. A slow lunch of fresh mussels and salad with the obligatory cervezas. Fabulous

We stayed in Isla Planna last year and found this to be our favourite by some way. This year we are in Puerto mazarron and even though there is a huge choice nearby we took the time to visit again and I am pleased to say it did not dissapoint! Also even in the evening the menu for 21 euros... More

We visited this restaurant twice in mid July and had two excellent meals. I was surprised to see so many mixed reviews. Our experiences were excellent for both food and service. On both occasions we struggled to manage the quantities provided and the quality was high. My favourite was a seafood paella which was fully loaded with top quality goodies.... More

Have visited this restaurant twice recently for Menu Del Dia, the food was of excellent quality and the choice was good. The service was friendly and attentive without the staff hovering, the timing of the courses was good so that you did not feel rushed to finish your course. It is situated on a busy road so if possible try... More

I hate to write a bad review but having tried this restaurant on no less that 3 occasions (just to give it the benefit of the doubt) I have no choice! We visit Isla Plana twice a year and there are not that many places to eat in walking distance so I like to give places a chance even if... More
