We were a bit disappointed given some of the reviews we read here before going. I felt the food was good but lacked some flavour. My wife had mushrooms in garlic for the starter and it was very bland. When she eat away the mushrooms we found out why. The only garlic in it was a single clove uncut or... More

This is one of our favourites. Very good value for money. Juicy steaks, excellent 3 course specials which are excellent value for money with big portions. Tapas is on show in their second bar/restaurant, good selection and very tasty. This family run restaurant have very friendly staff and speak perfect English. If you are visiting Los Boliches a visit to... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant on several occasions during our holiday and we were never disappointed. The home made soup was the best soup I have ever tasted. There was a 3 course set menu, with loads of choice for each course, for €12.50.. Really good value. The staff were friendly and helpful. A lovely restaurant.

We always return to this gem of a restaurant in Los Boliches. So far this holiday we have enjoyed 3 visits, with plans for a 4th visit before we return home. The 12,50€ Menú del Día provides excellent value for money, with a varied selection of choices for starter, main meal and dessert on offer. Antonio, the owner and manager,... More

This family-run restaurant is well worth a visit. They have an extensive menu, properly dressed tables with real napkins ( a treat in this area!) indoor and outdoor seating, a bar and a restaurant. Their roast duck is an 'order ahead' meal and worth making an event of! Slow roasted and served with 9 different vegetable the staff carve and... More
