Ate here tonight on recommendation from another couple in our hotel and we were not disappointed! Mini bus picked us up from hotel and took us straight to restaurant which is a very good plus point! The staff were excellent & Bruno gave us a lovely table outside! The food was very good - hubby had the steak and it... More

Bruno (manager) and his staff are extremely attentive and make the dining experience enjoyable for the family. We ate wonderful steak and prawns on the stone, my husband had delicious sea bass and prawns. Food well priced, enjoyed the experience so much we ate again on our final night!! Don't let the daytime location put you off, the place comes... More

We visited in march with my parents and it was nice to go back and be remembered by Bruno, the food and the staff are worth going back for time after time. Food is reasonably priced. Will be going back to see Bruno if only for the steak as it is one of the best around will see you soon... More

My wife and I returned to Real Canoa on two occasions this year. We were met by Bruno and his team as if we were family. The special ingredient of this restaurant is Bruno and his team who go the extra mile to ensure that you have a good experience. Some comments have been made about meal timings and the... More

A very welcoming restaurant! The staff work really hard to make your evening an experience, not just a meal. There is regular live music (and sometimes dancing). Food cooked "on the stone" at the table is their speciality and we would highly recommend it. The owner goes out of his way to make customers feel welcome, and even suggested trips... More

Firstly sorry it has taken me so long to do this review. We ate here on June 13th for my partners 40th birthday. It turned out to be a real treat. We had had a lovely day out and this was just the icing on the cake. We stumbled on the place on a walk out one morning and was... More

Very friendly restaurant but if you want a table outside you must book. Food very good but I think most people go for the atmosphere.

Had a great meal here tonight, great staff and they had a guitarist playing. It's a wonderful Street for food here, and this place was great. Book though, as we were inside upstairs and you feel a little disconnected from the rest of the guests. Our fault for not booking. Cheers Bruno

This restaurant doesn't look too special when you pass by it in the day time, but at night it is necessary to book as it is deservedly hugely popular. The 'hot stone' meat dishes are fantastic, and the waiting staff and owner are friendly and charming. They make it a very special experience for everyone, especially children. Don't fill up... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times in the past and every time love it. The staff get the balance between attentiveness and creating a relaxed atmosphere perfectly. My wife was pregnant and they immediately noted this and offered her non-alcoholic beverages. The food is superb, in presentation, taste and enjoyment. The atmosphere is great, always a buzz... More
