Delicious seafood

Calamari, clams, mussels, stuffed squid..... All very good. An interesting selection of wines available to accompany the tapas or meals. Some English menu available for the food.

We decided to have our lunch here after trying to avoid the tourist typical restaurant. The result was really pleasant.

We had late night tapas here one evening and then came back for menu of the day (Euro 12.50) on our last day. The food is really delicious, all freshly cooked and quite contemporary in style. The duck shanks in port wine sauce melt in the mouth. If you get the chance to try the melon gazpacho, do, as it... More

Sat here one evening and enjoyed the sun going down on the old town across the beach. Good selection of food and a large choice of good quality and reasonably priced wine. Well worth a visit

May be the best restaurant close to the down town. Nice music ambient. It is modern but you must be carefull because if you want one " tapa" is possible they serve one " ración" .They have got a very good wines card. We spend all over the week having lunch there. We are Spanish but we do not like... More

I had a meal here as the hotel I was staying was half board and their restaurant was not open for the season. Great tapas bar/restaurant/wine bar. Chefs on display, which is always fun to watch. Very good selection of wines and beers. Good food and reasonable prices.

We stayed in the hotel next door Porto Cristo and it was a pleasure to walk down there and enjoy a really nice meal and a good bottle of wine. We will go there any time. Relaxed, laid back and friendly.

Amazing restaurant with really good tapas, not a tourist trap as many others around. Give a try to any of the 'alcachofas' dishes, they are delicious, and one of the local products. Nice restaurant, good selection of wines and a reasonable price (around 25 euros per person).

We've called for a drink here several times. It's always busy and plays really funky chill out tunes. Last night we has dinner and it was excellent. Between the 4 adults our spanish is pretty decent but we had to call upon the Spanish dictionary a few times as the menu has a modern twist. Once we were sorted we... More
