A nice cafe restaurant in a lovely corner plot in Palma nova. Very friendly staff and a good menu to choose from.

Only went here for midday lunch as it is more of a cafe than a dress up place. Had starters and drinks. Prawn cocktails were average and the chips were great. Service was great bar one lady hovering to clean up and ended up taking my plate while i was still eating though.

Not a patch on what it used to be. Not as busy. No service with a smile. Used to be such a lovely little cafe. Not sure what went wrong but we gave it a miss this time.

Went here for a family evening meal. Good service, plenty of choice and reasonable prices, even got a 'doggy bag' as our grandson did not finish his meal.

Tried this restaurant on the last night of our holiday and wished we had found it earlier. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had cod in a seafood sauce that was excellent. Reasonably priced, well prepared and presented. Would reccomend

This place is one of our favourites for lunch and dinner, best service ever, names remembered and food served with a smile. The Paella is great and we also had great steaks.... Egg and chips are good as well. Just a great friendly place to eat good food in a nice location, what more could you want?

Don't want to give you any clues as to the tone this review is going to take but we ate here three times even thought we were on a half board deal at the hotel.
