Fantastic meal

Had a lovely meal overlooking the sea. Quality food and wine in a lovely little restaurant. Would recommend booking to get a table with a sea view as they are limited. Well worth a visit. We will be back.

Unless you know about the quality of the food, the terrific service and attention to detail, with superb sea views from the window tables, you will probably walk by the entrance without a second thought. But I would advise you to book as it is full most nights. Visited several times now having been introduced to it by my Italian... More

I went with friends. we asked for a table overlooking the sea but were told they were all reserved. There was still a table available in window two hours later when we left. The food was very good I would have liked to return, but the service although efficient was not up to par, run mainly by two men (could... More

We were advised to go here and what a recommendation that was! The restaurant is a floor above the street with splendid views. You are well received by a group who work well as a team. The fact that one of them cooks some flambé dishes in the restaurant at your table is a bonus. The food is outstandingly good,... More

We decided to try this due to rave reviews online. While it was nice to get a menu with some different things on it, we didn't feel that it was so much better than the other places we have enjoyed here (Cervantes, Asiatico, La Cubierta, Casale Franco). The service was fine as was the food but the veg was liberally... More

Visited here twice and impressed with the service, ambience and food. Feels like a proper restaurant! Mushrooms and tuna/avocado/tomato starters were excellent and we had chateuabriand on both occasions which was beautifully cooked (medium) and presented, served with a superb bearnaise sauce. It's not very big so a must to book in advance

This place is adviced if you want to escape (a bit) from the monotony of all Plaja Blanca restaurants, especially those on the sea-side. It is more cosy and have a menu that is more "elaborate" compared to the standard restaurants in the area, mostly based on fish plates. Fish was fresh, seafood as well, house wine was surprisingly good... More

We ate here three times during our recent holiday, and were never disappointed. My simple grilled sole was the best I have ever tasted. Thick, moist, and not a bone. My wife praised her confit of duck so we both tried it on our next visit: very good. For our last meal my wife had the veal marsala, while I... More

Fantastic in every way. The food and drink was fantastic, especially the flambéed Sea Bass, and above all, this is the only restaurant in Playa Blanca where the service is excellent, attentive, and they have great homemade desserts. Everywhere else in this resort is let down by the service. Shame we didn't find this one until our very last night.
