Worth a visit if walking past 3.5star.

Kids garden seemed great but didn't have much, it could be much improved with a slide and fixing the broken swings. Food was fairly good. Beware the house wine (at €9.50) isn't on the wine list (starts at ~€20). House wine is quite acceptable taste wise and thus good value. Starters got a mixed... read more

As you stand facing the restaurant from the road side it feels as if you are entering a private home, the driveway is lined with olive and fruit trees, it is lit up beautifully, the ambience is wonderful, the staff very welcoming and the food lovely. The prices were in line with everywhere else but it felt more luxurious so... More

6 of us eat there last night and the food was really nice but all 6 meals were only warm I think they must have been left on the side for a while We were all really hungry because we had waited along time for our food so we eat it and complained afterwards which we shouldn't have done we... More

The experience begins as you walk into the elegant garden (look right for the most delightful mural in the children's play area) and are welcomed by the friendly staff. Service was at the right speed, not so fast we felt rushed or so slow we were kept waiting. The starter and main course portions were generous and we regretted leaving... More

Took one hour and ten minutes to get a main course in Julios last night. Mixed reviews from our table , steak was good but chicken Piri Piri was small and very average. Staff were so slow and unfriendly we argued about even leaving a tip. Nice setting but Julio (or whoever) needs to sort this out. Twenty minutes to... More

Ate here last night, dinner for four. Service was slow at times but very friendly. Although well presented the main course was average and lacked real flavour. Definitely feel you are paying for style over substance. The desserts were really tasty, so finished the meal happy. Not enough to entice us back though unfortunately.

We ate here on Friday night. Although the service was a little slow, the food was lovely and the waitress was fabulous, she was so friendly and helpful.

This is a lovely restaurant that out of town. All of the staff were helpful and very friendly. Food was very nice. Particularly enjoyed the crepe for dessert (I'm normally a savoury girl). Nice to be able to watch much of the food being cooked on a fire outside. Excellent very local wine. Worth a visit.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. Passed it many times and finally booked with two friends. The ambience, service and food was great. We all enjoyed our starters and Main meals and couldn't manage desserts. We ordered a bottle of wine and beers for our husbands. A lovely evening until we checked the bill !! We were overcharged...
