Nice paella

Boy did we we make the right choice. Again the food was fantastic but not only that ,the staff had decorated... More

Came here on 20/6/15 after a long journey and just missed dinner at the hotel. We were having a general mooch about seeing what there is. They were not pushy for you to come in unlike some places. Wide variety on the menu. I had salmon in lemon which came with rice and canarian potatoes and the other half had... More

We tried this due to the good reviews. Foods pretty average and you can tell a lot of it is microwaved from frozen, which I can cope with if the price is right and the service is good but it's not! Waiter literally tutted and screwed up the drink order after I explained I wanted a glass of wine not... More

We have been to this restaurant several times before, on our last tow visits it has really gone down hill,the service was very poor, we ordered two glasses of wine when they eventually arrived they were half measures, the glasses had been in a dish washer so many times they were so scratched they looked dirty and should have been...

Don't understand the positive & delicious reviews about this place...menu is typical touristy: pizza,pasta,steak and fish from the vitrine - definitely not the catch of the day! sangria is disgusting, food quality not fresh & waiters have served us with the wrong food & drinks. There are much more better places, which serve no frozen fish ... Not worth visiting!

The good is easy to write. Lovely location and excellent food. We both had steaks which were tender and done exactly as we asked for them to be. Cannot fault them. The bad takes a bit more describing. The price of the wine is extortionate. €13.90 for a bottle of house wine which is about €8 elsewhere and €2 in... More
