Have always wanted to eat in this restaurant - knowing how busy it gets in the Summer, booked a table for 6 in the outside courtyard 3 days in advance. Obvious from the reaction when we arrived just before 9 p.m. that there was a problem; there was no table for us as it had been allocated to another party.... More

We decided to check out reviews and picked this place for a meal. We have two dogs but they gave us a table outside which was nice as you can sit and people watch. Enzo our waiter was lovely and very knowledgeable, he picked a local red wine which was perfect and we couldn't fault the food. Visit yourself you... More

It was our fault, we are sorry about that. The problem was that we started to do the main courses too early, and once they was over the table and hot, they was served (i as a chef i'm always hurrying dishes to go out before they get cold). In Spain people don't like to wait more that 10 minuts... More

Excellent meal, all was just a very special experience. The staff were excellent, it was a very hot day and as we sat down they brought us a bottle of iced water, most welcome. Will return in the evening as the courtyard would be very pretty at night. A must if you are near St Marti trust me!!

We recently visited this restaurant and enjoyed what was effectively a taster menu of some nine courses. The whole experience had been arranged as a gift from our children, and what a gift it turned out to be. The service and the atmosphere was faultless and we were made to feel it was a very special occasion by the chef/proprietor... More
