I was ready to over look the plastic plates and the poor decor, BUT the service was terrible. Given the restaurant was quiet the service was so slow that they missed out on further drink orders and a dessert order. I wonder how they'd cope if it was busy. The food was nice but being treated like we were not... More

i was not expecting great chinese food on the island, but this place (right across from the Gran Hotel) was reasonable. I prefer Mandarin rather than Cantonese style and i had the spicy lamb here.

This is a lousy restaurant with a dingy, depressed and dirty atmosphere, a really small menu selection and right next to a busy road. The food was so bad we paid for our drinks and first course and left. To be avoided.

Went here based on reviews. The service was about the only positive to take. My girlfriend and I both had a chicken dish, and both of us tried one piece of chicken and left it, disgraceful. Pretty sure we were not served chicken, it seemed like some sort of fish. It really was disgusting, ate our chips and prawn crackers,... More

Found this place after trying a few others. This was in our opinion the best Restaurant around. Run by a lovely family and food really fresh with lots of it. Try it you wont be disappointed.

We shared a plate of peking duck pancakes to start, 2 whole duck breasts and more pancakes than you can eat for 11 Euro. Then we had shrimp curry and spare ribs with some egg fried rice, we were stuffed half way through. With a 6 Euro bottle of house white wine and some water a total of 34 Euro... More
