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.

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
