We visited this restaurant as we fancied something a bit different but the foodwas a big disappointment. We chose tapas which was again something different for us but the food was very poor. The meatballs were pretty tasteless and some had quite an unpleasant flavour, the calamari was more chewy than I would expect and again tasteless, initially the dates... More

My family and I ate here, four of us, with two children aged 8 and 11. We were made welcome and service was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. They were patient with my attempts at speaking their language and not condescending when they needed to help me. The food was delicious, we had a selection of Tapas to start... More

I dined here recently. The waiter recommended the Seabass which I had. Lovely but I asked for a large salad and no potatoes. Loads of small potatoes arrived and small salad. Looking around this seemed to be the norm. Fish was delicious. My friend had steak which was huge. Will go back again. Great value for money. Meal for two... More

We dined here a couple of times. The food was very good especially the tapas. The house white was also fine. Portions tend to be on the large size so be careful when ordering. Most of the negative comments seem to be with the waiter's attitude which can appear sarcastic but we thought he was probably trying to be funny... More

Lovely staff, generally good food very reasonably priced, what more can you say? We stayed in Playa Blanca for two months and ate here a lot. Don't get on the wrong side of Angel though, he is quite a character. They are keen to know if their food is not to your satisfaction so they can do something about it,... More
