Homemade burgers are actually 'Big Al's' prepacked burgers and the chicken on the pizza is prepacked aswell. Avoid this place if you want good food

Although this restaurant is situated on the promenade with great sea views, the food is acceptable/average but nothing 'special'. At the time we visited, the restaurant was busy, however, the staff seem a little disorganised and meals very slow. We had to ask for the table to be cleaned and repeatedly had to ask for drinks. Our bruschetta starter was... More

We chose here for the views but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food- Maltese dished. The pitcher of sangria was great value too!

Whilst The food was perfectly acceptable it was nothing special but drinks were far too expensive. 4 euro for a beer !!! Guess... More

View over the Med was excellent and the food was good. However, we were incorrectly charged for a higher priced wine than we received. We visited later in the week to give it a second chance and wanted to sit inside as a change but told we couldn't so went elsewhere.

An impressive exterior wows you, drawing you into the restaurant but whether inside (think Wetherspoons style decor) or outdoor (think white plastic patio tables and wipeable tablecloths) don't be put off: the menu is extensive and the serving staff are lovely and friendly. The portions are HUGE and the food is nice and tasty. My partner and I opted for... More

This was our third visit to the restaurant in 2 years. We like it because of the view of the sea which is stunning, especially at dusk. In our last review, we gave an excellent rating but this time only poor, so why? There was a marked decline in the standard of food we were served. The broccoli soup was... More

Again set up for TV screens to watch football. Spacious is an understatement! Prices average, did not eat but menu looked basic & limited.
