Tasty Paella

Found this restaurant on our walk back on the main road from Playa Dorada. We ordered the mixed paella which took approx. 25 mins. All the fish and seafood in the paella were very fresh and the chicken was very flavoursome too. I don't like mussels so my OH had them and he said they were very... read more

Simple Spanish run business that serves great quality food that doesn't break the bank.... We have been dining here for years and spend quite a few nights here every time we holiday in Playa Blanca. The welcome we and other regulars get is fantastic. I'm quite a fussy eater and they are always happy to adjust meals to suit my... More

We have been visiting Playa Blanca for over 20 years and only recently heard about this restaurant, we weren't disappointed! Lovely attentive staff and excellent food! The steak and the sauces are to die for! Far more relaxing evening than we had in some of the more popular restaurants like 'Sebastyans' and 'Romantica.' Great value and great food!

A busy restaurant even in late January, tells you all you need to know. Lots of people return to this great local restaurant, simply because it offers consistently good food and real value for money. The steaks in various sauces are a highlight, even the ones that are only 9 euros.

The beef and fillet steak is one of the best on the Island , guaranteed to be busy so just wait , it is worthwhile , the staff in this family run restaurant are quick and efficient , and when it slows down they will come and join you at your table .

We use Cervantes every time we return to Playa Blanca and it always presents good quality food well cooked at very reasonable prices. I particularly rate their paellas and flambeed steak. I can't think where else serves up quality fillet steak flambeed in your choice of sauce with jacket potato or delicious home made chips and veg for €12. No... More

Having been to Playa Blanca many times, we have never dined here before. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious...as was the wine! Service was a little slow but this was to be expected as it was Christmas weekend. Will definitely visit again.
