The setting is idyllic and it was busy on a Monday lunchtime in March with locals, tourists, golfers, business people. Service was very good.

Certainly not cheap, and the selection of tapas courses may not suit all tastes, but always reasonable choices for adults and kids. Have lost some old favorites with the change of chef, but still very... More
