There are several good places to eat in Playa Blanca, doing good basic food but this where to go if you want something special. It is only open Mondays and Wednesdays and we ate there both days last week. Situated about 5 minutes walk from the main part of the Marina, you'll probably best of getting a taxi of you're... More

This restaurant is very special, it only opens two days a week but offers a Mitchelin star standard food and experience. A beautiful room with views into the kitchen, husband cooks and his lovely wife serves. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant is a little off the beaten track (round the back of the Rubicon area of the marina) and only opens Mondays and Wednesdays Good service, interesting decor and fine food, although it would have benefited from bigger portions of the accompanying vegetables. Overall an enjoyable experience and worth a visit for something different,.but just fell a little short... More

Lovely to sit outside and enjoy a drink and people watch. Lovely gin and tonics although strong and needed two tonics. Food looked very good too and excellent service.

After visiting two years ago, we returned without disappointment. The food, service and price had not altered much and were all to an excellent standard. Limited opening times but well worth the wait. Compared to other restaurants in the resort I would say this is one of the best. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and not rushed. Compliments to the owners.

I had eaten here before so was looking forward to going and it didn't disappoint. From the moment Annabel greeted us to the moment we left it was a lovely evening. The leek pie was one of the best starters I've ever had. Watch out as it only opens Monday and Wednesday evenings. We'll worth a visit.

We visit Playa Blanca twice a year and always eat here twice. It is an experience - the decor, and especially the toilets (think The Tardis) are wacky. The food is great, depending on what you are looking for. The negative reviews on here tend to be on the basis of high prices for smallish portions. If what you want... More

We have been to Playa Blanca several times over many years and have watched it change. Like most visitors we have eaten in the hotels, at restaurants on the main street, around the marina and along the sea front but this restaurant is a hidden jewel. Not easy to find but only a few minutes walk inland from the Marina... More
