We went there twice at New Year 2016. First time there were helpful staff and the food was good. The second time there was only one waiter and he was being as unhelpful as possible with extra slow service > the food seemed to go downhill on the second visit as well. My theory is your only as good as... More

Lovely looking surroundings for this chicken house with plenty of outdoor space albeit under awnings and not overlooked from the outside. Meals were ok, chicken croquettes were disappointing as the filling was just cheap mush whereas you would expect proper chicken with potato. Service was adequate but could do with a bit more of a welcoming feel. Drinks were average... More

I've been here last holidays in Benidorm having dinner with a friend Pomes frites not as good as always and chicken good taste but a little bit dry ... But the service of the waiters and rest of food was good. I like this place and maybe was late that's why. But in general is cheaper

Been coming here for 5 years with different groups of family and friends. Everybody we bring wants to return. The chicken is spot on - the baked potato and allioli is to die for. Very reasonably priced as well.
