Were afraid we were going to get ill from eating the seafood stew. 3 other dishes, including the "filet mignon" were also very disappointing. Unsatisfactory service and response from management.

I didn't like the food, the tables were setup outside the restaurant, if you want to be seated inside with air condition there were no available tables. Didn't like at all.

Twenty... More

We stayed at Palmas del Mar for a week..and ate in all restaurants in the area...very expensive all around...except this little Corner in Palma Nova terrace....wow!!! Super good and the least expensive of all... The owner and the staff very nice and extra cool...is the place that all the local people go @ night for great food and cocktails...
