Perfecto

Don't miss out on this restaurant - it's well worth a visit. Wish it was open every night. Fairly expensive but not in comparison to some of the other local restaurants, which are a disappointment in comparison. If you''re stating at the hotel volcan it's a 5 minute walk.

Found through TripAdvisor, we were very impressed with the standard and choice of food and service. They are only open Mondays and Wednesdays due to the owner's health. He is the chef and a great one at that. His wife is the service and she is exceptional, so a good package between the two. Best meal we had this holiday.... More

Wonderful food and excellent hosts. Quality of food was superb with every item on the plat beautifully presented and individually tasty. My wife had a salad to start and I had asparagus with smoked salmon. Gorgeous ! Followed by lamb and suckling pig and then great puddings. More expensive than other local restaurants but definitely worth it. 110 euro including... More

This restaurant is a must visit if you are in Playa Blanca. It is only open Monday and Wednesday so it is essential to book. The food is amazing and the wine list superb. It is a little more expensive than the rest of the eateries but well worth it for the experience. The dramatic views of the mountains make... 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

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.
