Located on the seafront, a few steps from the beach, with fine views out to sea. Excellent menu with a number of unusual items. Well worth a visit.

Kept going back to Friends due to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, good food and good value. A perfect place to chill in the day or go to dinner in the evening. The hostess was wonderfully attentive in the evening.

Starter was great as we sat down during what was to be a live music interlude. Guitarist came to end any chance of conversation. Veggie main was overpriced curry. Decor great but not my favourite meal here in Playa DAro

We have had this restaurant recommended. It looks like all the other restaurants on the promenade - but it is very good. Food is excellent, staff are very friendly and service-minded (and they will sing for you). Will definately go here again. Remember to book a table as it is very popular.
