Visited here recently with partner and after reading reviews both ordered steak and were not disappointed. Lovely seating and staff very friendly and went out their way to make sure you were comfortable

Nice food good value. We found it benefitted from glass windows and doors which could be closed to keep the wind off you as the nights start to get cooler. Screens for the different football as well. Staff and owner very friendly well worth a try.

The food here was good but only as good as most of the other restaurants on the prom. The staff were uber friendly and made quite a fuss about one of our party 😊.

Had lunch here most days, very good food at a reasonable price Staff were very friendly. This restaurant has a good spot on the beach with sun beds. This area of the beach is sandy unlike some other areas that were stony.

We made a promise that we would try this restaurant before we left Bitez and it's a good job we did! The food tops all of the other places we've eaten in Bitez, cooked to perfection, and the staff were prompt and genuinely friendly & chatty with excellent English. Definitely go back to this establishment if we come back to... More
