Ate here several times during our two week stay and were never disappointed. Staff really nice, food tasty and generous and view lovely. Only 'found' this due to trip advisor - been to playa blanca before and must have walked right past - well worth finding.

We ate here as a family of 5 on a Friday night. 1st thing we noticed was the deco, very different and it kept the children occupied looking for faces in the rocks whilst waiting for food.

Saw this place in April so went for our first night meal after arriving, family of five, service was attentive and friendly, Pizza's were excellent and Peroni on draught, what more could you want. Only negative being as it is an outside terrace people smoking on the next table was horrible, back to the old days in Blighty.

The wood-fired pizzas and the pasta dishes are excellent. Very good value also as the portions are generous and all dishes are reasonably priced. Attentive service too, meaning we will certainly return.

We went here as a family of 4 and had a lovely meal. Nice setting, good atmosphere and good value for money. Pizza's are the best and I had a lovely starter of calarmis - definitely worth a visit.

Can't understand why this place isn't full to the brim of customers? Fantastic meal had by eight of us. Huge portions meant happy, smilie teenagers with full bellies. The artisan breads and oils are divine as was the lasagne I had. Nice friendly staff. Totally recommended
