Set on the main drag out to Papagayo, near town centre, this has a good and wide menu choice and is always full. The locals go there, as do regulars as it is a good price and varied. The service is fine, hectic as it is always busy and it faces onto the main road, which may put some people... More

This is a great place for good food at reasonable prices. A street back from the sea and the prices are considerably cheaper. The food is very nice, but remember you get what you pay for. The service was very quick and welcoming and would go back.

Popped for some food and drink, reasonably priced food and drink very quick service. Has an outer terrace for smoking and indoor for the non smokers. English music which is a bonus at least you can understand what you listening to.

Very reasonable prices and average food but that is due to its' location, looking out onto the main road through Playa Blanca. The worst part of our experience was the very abrupt attitude of the staff and conveyor service when it is busy which is most of the time because of the cheap prices. We were rushed out as soon...

We did not eat a full meal but enjoyed 3 great beers along with snacks. Easy access for the cruise terminals. On a busy road but there was some outdoor seating areas mainly taken up by "smokers". Got free WIFI. The toilet facilities OK but not well maintained.

Visited this restaurant with my family for lunch on a day trip to Playa Blanca. My son and I shared a number of dishes from the extensive tapas menu all of which were very tasty and excellent value. Try the dates wrapped in bacon, grilled baby squid and the meat balls. My wife had the omelette and my daughter in... More

Cook doesn't wash his hands after going to toilet. When we made a comment on it they offered us a drink but our appetite was gone.

This place used to be ok years ago. It certainly isn't now. Frozen, microwaved fare and even the sangria was out of a carton. It seems to now be presided over by rude, intimidating individuals who actually threw our change back at us as they wanted a better tip! We were actually going to leave a proper tip - we... More
