We have eaten here every time we have visited PDC but this was our worst dining experience so far.

When we got there, nobody showed us to our table, we... More

We waited ages before we were offered a drink and then ages before we ordered. We waited 30 minutes for our meal which was brought to us by an elderly man - obviously not one of... More

I'm not really one for British fry up breakfast whist in Spain, but i made an exception for the day after carnival. at only €2,70 i was dubious when ordering but was very pleasantly surprised not only at the quality of ingredients but also the attentive and friendly service.

We allows order the garlic prawns, canarian potatoes and the chauteuxbriand. Expensive meal but have always enjoyed it and everyone looks in amazement when you have the table wheeled up and they start cooking meat on the breeze block ha!! Service was poor during the day I must say but that maybe because they only had 2 staff on....?
