Fantastic Food & Value

We have been coming here for 15 years. Back in Playa Blanca the last 2 weeks we visited here for dinner 3 times. My Husband said the fillet steak was far better than he eats in the UK and a quarter of the price. I had the grilled prawns and the king ptawns just excellent. The staff are very... read more

Fantastic Paella, well worth going just to have a good meal in Playa Blanca. We enjoyed it that much we went back and had the steak! Prices are very reasonable, staff are nice and pleasant and the food great. Try it yourself......

My husband and I have been going to Playa Blanca for years and spend many of our evenings in Cervantes. Family run and fresh local food. It's our first port of call when we arrive and the welcome you get as returning customers is fantastic. Apart from the food I love the fun in this wee gem of a restaurant.... More

Visited Cervantes a few times and I thought it was time I posted a review. Staff friendly and food excellent. My husband had steak in a pepper sauce and I had the chicken. Steak cooked as requested and both steak and chicken very tender. Reasonably priced and a great experience.

Cheap and cheerful, good food served quickly in a restaurant away from the sea front but recommended for price, choice and quality. Ambience of the redstart ant brought to the forefront through cooking meat in the middle of the seating area.

This restaurant is on the main road behind the seafront, great choice of dishes and more reasonably priced than those on the seafront. The first time went we had then paella which was so good. All the food is freshly prepared and on the second time we visited we sat inside and there you can watch the chef grill, prepare... More

We ate here twice. Very good mixed grill and steaks. As this is off the promenade you get your value for money. The waiters are very friendly. They get busy later on so go out early. Highly recommend!

We were recommended to this restaurant but did not find the service either efficient or particularly friendly. Although we don't have big appetites by any means, the portions were very small.
