I was there yesterday evening, never went there bevor. And let me tell you,I will never go there again! I spent a horrible night in the bathroom after eating there! What was surprising, because the seafood tasted frozen, which was not what I was expecting or wanting! So if you don't want to spent a long time in the bathroom,... More

We have planned to go there for the gambas with a Groupon Voucher. We called one day before and on the phone we have been told that we did not have to reserve and could just come. When we arrived at 19:00 the manager told us that he could not give us a table because everything was booked. I was... More

I came here twice with my wife for the gambas a go go. The staff were very friendly to us and got our drink orders in pretty quickly. The first time we went on a weekday evening and the restaurant was pretty empty and our food came very quickly. The second time, we went on a weekend evening and the... More

The gambas were delicious, a little spicy, with garlic and tasty gravy mmmm... French fries were ok, I mean, it's French fries. The service was good. Lots of people, full on Friday evening and they did their best! I've read many not very nice opinions on this place and was a little worried about that as we invited some friends...... More

Good all-you-can-eat prawns (gambas) forumla and typical spanish food. Good location 2 minutes from Geneva's train station. Place is not fancy, so not the place to take your important business contact. But recommended for an outing with friends / family.

The restaurant is famous for it’s Prawns. Purchased a voucher for four persons for Prawns and Kir. The Garlic prawns were literally without Garlic and there was no arrangement at all to keep them hot. The taste of the prawn was as if those were not fresh and frozen ones were used instead. We couldn't even finish and also were... More

Fish and seafood were not fresh at all (had to return some of it that was really bad), overcooked and dry. Did not digest well at all and felt bad part of next day. Not an isolated issue in my opinion and the lack of clients on this day where many other restaurants of the area were full may be... More
