Great Food

We were welcomed into this restaurant and really well looked after. The waiters and waitresses explained everything about the food and then made sure we were enjoying the meal which we did on both occasions. Lovely atmosphere.

We returned here and were greeted like long lost friends. Food excellent as always. Can highly recommend the Chateaubriand for two or even three. Service very good and lovely clean surroundings.

Get a table on the terrace. Excellent staff. Very good food. Try Espada. We are not fans of smokers alongside food & it is a pity this is not banned or restricted.

visited this restaurant many times and always enjoyed my meal. It's magical sitting on the upstairs terrace under the bougainvillea on a warm summer night. Food is very good tasty and plentiful, staff are friendly with out being over familiar. Have tried many dishes but our favourite starter is the sea food soup just delicious.

Service was second to none, the prawns in garlic were fantastic as were the other starters and mains. The restaurant was clean and really well presented and we couldn't fault it. The only disappointment were the desserts, but then they usually are aboard.

During our two week holiday we visited this restaurant 4 times. A warm and friendly welcome, an extensive menu and wine list, knowledgeable and informative staff and well cooked and presented food. We noted that a lot of local people use this restaurant.

Our welcome to the restaurant was warm and friendly. We sat outside in a small but comfortable courtyard. The choice of dishes was good and the menu had an English translation so we had an idea what we were ordering. The fish was delicious. It took some time to arrive but that was because it was cooked to order and... More

Clean, bright, lovely fish, staff were excellent and friendly. Would recommend a visit. We had the fish of the day, sea bream, and the grilled mixed fish, as meat lover, I was very impressed.

A friendly well run family business serving excellent cuisine. By the time you've been there twice you are greeted like an old friend. The staff have time to explain the menu and make suggestions. The only drawback was serving on cold plates. We observed that I was not the only one to send food back for reheating so you 'd... More
