My daughter is in Benidorm end of August and I've paid for her to go for a meal there. I am going again in September and can't wait to... More

Went there twice during the last couple of weeks, and we were extremely happy, both with the food, the prices and last but not least the staff. From the personal welcome, to the handshake and goodbyes, everything was pretty much perfect. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Benidorm.

Greeted warmly at the door by Raphael and opted for the 14.95 three course menu. Started off with a soup taster and some croutons with salmon and garlic paste. Nom. The garlic and mushroom soup was incredible.... More
