quality and value fort money

Arrived just after 1400 so the place was fairly empty so expectations were not high. The staff were friendly and helpful. The four of us all had fish meals which were value for money as was the wine. All in all a great place for a very pleasant lunch.

Outstanding food and service. The meals were huge and you could not eat everything they gave you, there was at least a 100 people in here when we arrived and it was only 10 past 12 at lunch time. The view of the natural pools and the highs waves crashing on the rocks outside will be a memory we will... More

Beautiful views from the dining room out to sea. Food was variable, but big portions. Espada fish with passion fruit was nice, the sauce not too sweet. Tuna steak was overcooked. The restaurant was quiet when we visited due to the season and service was efficient though not particularly exceptional. Views are the most compelling reason to recommend visiting.

Unless there is a tour bus in town, this is a great place to go to see the lava pools and overlook the ocean. Spectacular views of the waves crashing against the rocks. Food was okay but the view makes up for it. Reasonably priced.

To enjoy this place you should arrive after the lunch rush. In the early afternoon, the setting is near perfect. The view over the lava pool is the best you can get in town. The interior is a bit dated - to say the least but if it is a sunny day you can sit on the sunlit terrace where... More

We had a dinner here. Although there was only 1 other couple in the staff were very nice and the food was good. Lacked a little atmosphere because of the lack of people but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. We would go back to this venue to eat

We had dinner several times there and each time was fantastic! Food is very fresh and tasty. Espada with passion fruit, bananas was perfect! And grilled sardines were also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant if you want to eat something really tasty.

This place suffers from 3 weaknesses: poor language skills, slow or absent service and inconsistent food. These are all easily solvable and if solved this is capable of becoming a first class place.

We've had lunch here one. My boyfriend had the tuna steak. It was totally overcooked. What a pity. My omelette was ok. I don't recommend this place... I did like the view though.

Such an amazing view from the terrace of this restaurant! We arrived when the sun was behind clouds and the terrace was almost completely empty. We chose an exposed table right in the corner which afforded he best views of the rocks, bays, pools, crashing waves and sea that changed colour from deep blue to shining turquoise with white spray....
