Last day of my Mediterranean cruise and the owners made us feel welcome. We never laugh so hard. We were looking for a place to grab a cold one with brunch and enjoy the water, this was the place!!! The food was prompt and the tasty! Would definitely recommend this place.

Lovely food however the service was incredibly slow. The restaurant was full and it is plain to see that they need more staff to cope. It took an age to order our first drink and subsequently our food. We ate our starters then sat and waited and waited and waited for our main course , other people were complaining about... More

Tiny portions, ordered a fillet steak not cheap at €26 it come with a micro tomato and 1 tiny potato. I thought it was a joke. Took 20 minutes to get my bill after asking. In the end I just went to the till and had to demand to pay for the tiny meal so I could get out if... More

Terrible experience at this restaurant, nowhere near enough staff to cope with the completely full restaurant which then made waiting times ridiculous. Food was dire, soggy nachos swimming in oil for starters and cold, undercooked steaks served for mains. Ridiculously small portions (2 baby potatoes cut in half to accompany a €23 steak dish?) and forgotten side orders. What looked... More

Palma de Mallorca was the final stop on our Mediterranean cruise. We decided to hit the beach and then have lunch just like we did everyday. La Cucaracha Tex Mex BBQ Grill was sitting amongst other restaurants at the beach but to be honest, the others looked to upscale and didn't have the patio presence this restaurant did. We were...
