Good Traditional Restaurant

We had a good evening here. The food is good and staff are very friendly. We tried meat and fish dishes, they were all well presented and tasty. The portions are very generous and prices are very reasonable. Well worth a visit.

We ate hear last year and was really impressed. We have visited twice during this holiday and I can honestly say that in my opinion I think it is the best restaurant in Playa Blanca. It's location may not be the best but what it lacks in sea views, it makes up for with service & quality. The menu is... More

Called in here for early evening meal (having seen how popular it was whilst sitting in the restaurant next door). Great value, great food and great service. Probably one of the best in Playa Blanca, and much cheaper than the ones on the sea front.

We have had some great mixed paellas here. The starter we like is goats cheese with jam. Lamb chops are normally good. For the fish make sure it is not over cooked which spoils the taste. Very popular and maybe too geared to getting people in with prices. Good house wine. We have been going for years, so maybe we... More

Spotted this place whilst going to make a reservation at another restaurant and thought it looked nice from what we saw on people's plates, also noticed that a few people in the guestbook at our apartment had mentioned it. We were not disappointed, the service was fantastic and waiter was really helpful when trying to decide between 2 meals. And... More

My best memory will be the friendly efficient service. The menu is very good with specials almost every day. My wife had the different varieties of fish and canarian potatoes, my wife and daughter also had the mixed sea food paella which was excellent. I'm a bit more unadventurous and there was still a good choice - I especially liked... More

This restaurant has a very varied menu and all is extremely cheap. We had a few different dishes and all of them were tasty, hot and fresh. We ate here a few times during our stay in Playa Blanca, we just wish we had found it sooner!!
