We are half way through our holiday and have visited the Real Canoa three times and they have produced consistently fantastic food. The atmosphere is great and they are extremely family friendly. We have a baby girl and they cannot do enough to ensure that everything we need is catered for. We have tried three other restaurants in the area... More

If you want something just that little bit different and special eat here- booking is advised as it gets very busy especially in the evenings. Bruno(owner) and all staff are fantastic. They will advise you about the food and there is usually live music and dancing.

A very busy restaurant that speaks volumes. The food is very good with great choices, even with 3vegetarian options. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the place has a real buzz about it. We will definitely be eating here again before we go home
