We ate with friends and and we had some steaks that were ok. It was not the cheapest restaurant. It lacked any pzazz and I was just thoroughly underwhelmed. One of our party had salmon but said that it had some kind of cheese on which made it taste strange. She was not very well the next day and thought... More

We have been going to Clippers for over 15 years never had a bad meal I think our favourite is fillet steak with pepper sauce, the owner always takes the order and we prefer to sit inside this lovely air conditioned restaurant, a must for a special occasion

Had a night out without the kids and this was a lovely restaurant. My husband had steak which was good but my seabass was delicious. Very simply cooked but very tasty. They recommended a bottle of green wine which we'd not had before but was the nicest we had all holiday. Best of the restaurants we ate at.

We have been here many times and the high standard of service and quality of food never fails. We were a large party and still the food and service were excellent. I had the best king prawns in garlic than I've ever had followed my a superb filet steak. Worth booking as very popular

Food was ok, wife's steak was nice but you can get better for the same price at other places, quite expensive for what you get though, they dump the bread and olives etc down and charge you a few euros for it before you get a chance to say no, which didn't amuse me much, service not very quick for...

A more sophisticated restaurant than others in the resort! Excellent service and good food. A little more expensive but well worth a visit.
