The paella is brilliant and worth every penny. Staff are engaging, friendly and very efficient. The drinks are good and very reasonably priced. There is... More

We have been eating here several times the past years, and it has never dissapointed. Owner is very friendly and likes to joke around. Always smiling, even at hectic times. Food is good. But this is not a gourmet restaurant (They have better food here than in most high priced restaurants in the area). Good desserts and the best tasting... More

I don't appreciate being served frozen food that's been microwaved a bit too long. Salmon like rubber, side veg from a frozen bag, potatoes were edible. Tasted my friends chicken, tasteless & microwaved. I don't get how people rate this soo well, are they drunk by time they eat possibly?! staff miserable too. I enjoy eating out regularly & I...

Year after year I visit the beehive - just down the road from our apartment and wonderful food and service. Consistently great. The lamb chops are sensational - also recommend spaghetti bolognaise and the tuna salad. Top top quality.

Our favourite place in Palnanova for our daily lunch. Staff always efficient and friendly. We've been going there for perhaps 10 years. Excellent for just a coffee, or a salad or an omelette and the house white is good too. Last of all - the magic indicator - the loos are squeaky clean!
