We arrived by taxi to be greeted by the owner. She is lovely and treated us like family. The restaurant is very modern compared to other places in playa. The service is admittedly slow but by design. Tables seem to be booked for the night. The tasting menu was exceptional. Highly recommended

This was by some distance the best meal we had during our vacation. The food is a very good standard and although not cheap, the quality of the food was worth what we paid. You won't stumble across the place but if you're close to Marina Rubicon you're not so far away. It's not open every night so if you... More

If you are looking for a restaurant in playa blanca on a Monday or Wednesday evening make sure that it's this one. Following ill health of the owner/chef it's only open on these days but it is really worth making the effort to plan to go. We ate here last night and we absolutely loved every part of it. The...

A notch above the standard of the majority of other restaurants in Playa Blanca and this is reflected in the bill. The food is very good although not, in my opinion, Michelin quality as some have suggested. Anabel is a lovely hostess and sets the tone for the evening with a relaxed but very knowledgable style. We had the leek... More

This place is a real change but!! To say it's the most expensive restaurant in playa Blanca it's in a terrible location and the days of paying a lot only on the sea front seem to have gone its nice but not fantastic and isn't open often either if you try it I'm sure you'll agree

Been tonight with open thoughts. Lovely reception and sat at window opposite kitchen. We had an aperitif of cava and rose. A bread bun (hot) with butter salt and a tomato salsa? Arrived, you pay 1.5euro for these but no issues with that. An amuse bouche arrived of prawn on courgette or marrow in a sauce, nice. We both had... More

We booked ahead of us arriving in Playa Blanca as the restaurant is only open 2 days per week, the ambience of the restaurant is that of fine dining, imagine our disappointment when we were told that the only table available to us was behind the wine fridge no real contact with the other diners so not much atmosphere for...

I really cannot recommend this place highly enough. We e-mailed a booking request ahead of our arrival in Playa Blanca, (booking a must actually as only open Monday and Wednesday and only 10 or so tables), and received a prompt reply confirming our table. Taxi a must from our hotel (other end of Playa Blanca). On arrival we were greeted... More

Service was excellent from start to finish without being fussy. The wine that was recommended to us was top quality and the food was as good as anywhere worldwide. Easily the best restaurant we tried in Playa Blanca.

We ate on the 2 nights we were able - Monday & Wednesday - of our week on the island. On both occasions the food was superb, other guests a pleasure to talk to. I had smoked salmon stuffed with rice & herbs to start on the first day, followed by suckling pig, cooked for hours, my wife had shoulder... More
