Lovely fish dinner, although did have to ask to have the fish filleted! Good service but a little pricey

Just ok, not much else to say. Food expensive but not the best we've had on our trip - it did as we occupied time prior to checking in to our private villa.

This was my favourite restaurant at Martinal. Smart surroundings but very informal (many people came to dinner straight from the beach). Seafood was delicious, and the children's area was excellent and kept our 3 year old entertained once he had finished his food.

To all the critical reviews that this place is full of children 'it's a family resort aimed at parents with children' seriously what do you expect. There are plenty of restaurants you can dine at for a romantic adult meal. However this is a perfect solution to anyone with children looking for a wonderful meal in a grown up setting... More

This is my second visit to the restaurant in two years. This restaurant is catering for a captive market of guests of Martinhal Resort who don't have their own transport and are therefore stuck in the resort. The very stylish décor is matched by extremely helpful and attentive staff who could not be better trained to deliver a quality product.... More

Not authentic enough. Should offer more local dishes. Sardines good. Have the mussels under starters as a main dish.

I ate with my party of 13 recently and have to say it was an appalling experience. It started well, expectations were high given the resorts reviews and on first impression, all seemed well. The restaurant was stylish, the serving staff polite and efficient, even offered us free cocktails as our table wasn't ready. We sipped our drinks and took... More
