Fordable good restaurant, value for money. In winter time they are not always open, but in season they are absolutely one of the most charming places in the middle of everything.

The waiter let the restaurant down. he didn't bring cutlery until after he'd served the food, you had to request a serviette and salt. He seemed to be in a bit of dream and to be honest the food for the price wasn't that special either. We had tapas and you can get better and cheaper elsewhere. I guess they're... More

We ate menu del dia here, we are a mixture of spanish and english. The restaurant is in a lovely location on the beach front and the price was okay, we had cod with mandarin sauce and pork loin stew, they were both tasty and the service was prompt as it was November and low season. The lady owner is... More

We did not enjoy the food here at all. Many dishes had Spanish roots but had been altered to suit the palate of ex pats. The fish appeared to be frozen rather than fresh. Most nights there is live music that mainly consists of a mix of 60's and 70's pop songs sung by a duet with an organ and... More

Planned a friends 50th at a different restaurant but did not like the menu so desperately tried to find an alternative! At very short notice they went out of their way to ensure it was a night to remember. Balloons on table with other decorations sang happy birthday to the birthday girl even ran one of our party back to... More

We couldn't fault this restaurant, friendly staff, good food, good value for money and a lovely seafront location. We visited 3 times in a week and it was consistently good.

Not sure what all the rave reviews all about. Food is pretty tasteless. Chicken with fries you can get anywhere. Tapas were not great. Very British, but no real fish and chips, which would be an improvement. Entertainment is horrible. Some expats singing...no not really singing, most likely struggling off key with old pop and rock songs. Really hated it.... More

Delicious food served by friendly, helpful staff in a great location right on the sea front. The Cajun chicken with goat's cheese and balsamic was memorable, prices are very reasonable considering the quality and presentation of the food.
