Very nice restaurant, beautiful food, good wine, a little on the pricey side but completely worth it. The waiters were friendly

It is in middle of the tourist route and therefore we didn't have very high expections beforehand. But The prawns were good and the bacalao very good. Children's menue was mediocre. Good service (2pm).

We have eaten here before and it was a let down then.This restaurant looks good they are great at enticing you in but the worst for service. We were three families with young children and after placing & receiving our initial order the staff never came back once to ask if we wanted more drinks or anything for that mater... More

Clipper was very much unsatisfactory as a restaurant for us. Our hostess was pleasant but otherwise all other servers were rude and impatient. We didn't feel like valued paying customers and felt like we were in the way. Immediately after having our orders taken coverts were placed on the table for all of us, even our 3 and 5 year... More

Whereas I cannot fault the food here and have eaten here on 6 different occasions, prices have constantly increased on the items you might not look at initially. For example a bottle of water is €4.15 whereas anywhere else we eat in is €2.00. Also a tomato salad was served with my main course and I was charged an extra... More

I'm stumped as what to say, there wasn't one thing I could say to either recommend/dismiss going here. The food was good , well presented and the staff were very efficient. I would say the place was a little too formal for my liking and certainly more expensive than other places in town. if you like the 5 star treatment... More
