Having visited twice and really enjoyed both meals on our last visit to Playa Blanca, we booked again for our latest visit. Although the food was still very good, the whole experience was incredibly rushed. Prices have certainly increased and we felt that portion sizes have decreased, but food was still high quality. We did say to the owner that... More

We tried this restaurant on the basis of its reviews on trip advisor and elsewhere and were not disappointed! The service was excellent, the welcome was warm, the food and wine were really good, albeit pricy, but it was a very enjoyable experience. Our one (minor) gripe would be that the tables are too adjacent - meaning that it's very... More

Booked this restaurant before leaving home as it is only open Monday & Wednesday nights, & we like good food, & recommendations were good. We were very disappointed with everything including the food. The portions were tiny, & nothing out of the ordinary. The female half of the owner was very friendly, but we were almost shoulder to shoulder with... More

The restaurant is only open on monday and wednesday nights,so don't miss out. The owner is delightful and welcomes you like a long lost relative. The food is out of this world and... More

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
