10 minutes walk from the marina at Playa Blanca. Excellent food and service. Try and get seat with a view of the kitchen. It's always good to see a chef enjoying himself. Only open Monday and Wednesday so worth making a date.

Run by a wonderful couple, the chef is passionate about food and this comes through in every course and his wife is probably one of the best front of house I have come across outside of a Michelin star restaurant. It is a difficult restaurant to find so if you sre coming from the port end of town I suggest... More

3 and a half hours seemed like 2. Time flies when you're having so much fun eating beautiful food freshly prepare by a chef who loves what he does. This place is only open two or three days a week so you have to call and book. It isn't cheap; mains start at about €20 but it is so worth... More

Have been here a couple of times and the food is excellent. Not cheap, but if you want a special night out with something different and beautifully presented this is the place. This is only open on Monday and Wednesday so you will need to book.

We had been told about this restaurant by friends in England. However before we found our feet and realised that it only opens on a Monday and Wednesday, there were no vacancies. Luckily there was a cancellation. The restaurant is close to the marina rubicon, but is not around the marina area. An amuse bouche was presented first. For starters... More

We had two excellent meals at this restuarant (beware they only open on Monday & Wednesday and suggest you book beforehand to ensure you get in) The resturant "team" made us very welcome and the food was fabulooooous!!

We were recommended this restaurant which you may not easily know about as it is not on any main restaurant area plus it only opens on Monday and Wednesday evening, so booking is advisable - I did it on their online website and they were expecting us. It is clean, welcoming and you can see the cook, who is also... More

This restaurant was highly recommended and it's easy to see why. We visited twice and had excellent food on both occasions. Although the menu is quite restricted the quality was very high. The slow-cooked shoulder of lamb was outstanding, and the pumpkin soup, prawn and leek terrine and all desserts were of very high quality. A very warm welcome from... More

Went here on a Monday night in February, and we're warmly welcomed into the bustling restaurant. The menu is short, but the food was excellent. We had grilled vegetables / leek and prawn terrine to start, then slow roast leg of lamb / fillet steak. It's a family owned restaurant; the husband is in the kitchen and his wife does... More
