Very good

Went on a Friday night the restaurant was very busy especially for February, food and service very good with a lovely ambiance, Lovely and warm which can be very important here in Spain as it can get very chilly. Will be back soon.

Back to this lovely restaurant last night. Couldn't fault it!! Food was delicious and the staff, as always very attentive!! They are closed for a well deserved holiday for the next three weeks which is sensible as this is a quiet period for most restaurants. Be seeing you again soon guys!! Highly recommended!!

And absolutely only (so far) worth to visit in Ciudad Quesada. Good mediterranean cooking. Often fully booked so make a reservation.

Lovely food, bruschetta is very nice. Service can be slow at busy times, difficult to re order drinks get the bill etc. The entertainment on Friday nights is not to everybody's taste "opera singer". Still one of the better places to eat in Quesada.

ate here whilst staying in quesada, meal was very nice, drinks possibly are a bit more expensive than other places but the measures are very good if you're on spirits. It's a nice restaurant, nicely laid out, good decor, service was fine, good selection of dishes on the menu, would definitely go back when staying in this area.

At busy times service can be a little slow...but to be told "it's to be expected, we are busy" isn't the reply to give to your clientele.

O.K. I didn't think this was a good restaurant when I first went there but I have now been 4 times and it has got better each time. The pizzas are thin and crispy and full of the best goodies. The spaghetti is al dente and hot. What more can I say. Coral hade the spaghetti vongole, it was delicious... More

This has been one of our favourite restaurants for over 12 years. A little more pricey than average but the service & ambience has always been excellent. This time we each enjoyed our favourite pizza and shared a salad and a glass of wine: a house red & Pinot White. The bill was €40 euros, with the glasses of wine... More
