Great Meal and Service

We found this restaurant on our last night in Playa Blanca and wished we had found it before. As some of the other reviews say, it's not fine dining but if you want a tasty meal with decent sized portions and excellent, friendly service this is for you.

Tried the special lunch here. At less than £7 it was the best special lunch menu we came across. The chicken kebab was so good and large enough for anybody. 3 course and drink. Did not try in evening but is busy all the time.

Had a couple of enjoyable evening meals at this busy and friendly restaurant on the Ave Papagayo going out from the seafront roundabout towards Princessa Yaitza etc. Fish and meat dishes good and reasonably priced wines to choose from. Can be worth booking as on one occasion we had to sit at the small bar (not a difficulty!) while waiting... More

Went to this restaurant on a whim and picked it because the prices were reasonable and the place was heaving. We managed to get the last empty table and although the prices were very good the portion sizes were huge and although the place was very, very busy the service was well paced and friendly. it's not fine dining, it's...

Have been before on previous trip. The restaurant more or less lives up to it's name. Plenty of typically spanish dishes which I love.Service is friendly and efficient and the prices very reasonable.

After having stopped here a couple of times for drinks with really great friendly service, we decided to have dinner one night as the menu looked good. The choice was good and the service was good however, they forgot about one of our starters (and the bread for the table) , the steaks were cooked wrongly and the lamb was... More

Have to be honest, we were put off a little bit by the 'statue' of the fella holding the menu out front, but were intrigued by the sheer number of people eating here, considering (a) it was off-season, (b) the location wasn't on the waterfront, and (c) the interior didn't look like anything to write home about.  We soon found...

We have eaten here a few times & we have always liked what we have had. There always seen to be a Euro 8.50 menu del dia. We have not gone for this at any of our visits but it seems to offer a reasonable choice. We went a couple of days ago & everything was up to its usual... More
