This place despite serving some ok food at an ok price is not going to get a return visit from us. It was virtually impossible to relax with all the noise and chaos generated by the elderly lady trying to get customers into the restaurant and the really chaotic service staff. The atmosphere was just not for us, and the... More

By far the best Chinese in the area. John and his crew always welcome you with a smile and are happy to amend menus if you wish. Food is always hot, fresh, tasty and well served. Cannot be faulted and its right on the front for people watching. Highly recommended

Have eaten here a few times. The staff are excellent and friendly, service is swift, but the food quality is just Ok. I think there's a better Chinese in the port just opposite this one (beside the C Bar) but the Slow Boat seems to get the vast majority of tourist traffic.

Always a very warm welcome, they remember us and the food is very enjoyable. Better than ever. Whatever John there gives in customer care should be packaged and sold everywhere.

The first time we visited here the food was excellent, the service was very good. Free prawn crackers and also free baileys type drink and brandy for the adults and a cherry alcohol free schnapps for the children. Can offer half portions for the children, however 2 half portions is more expensive than one full portion. The 2nd time we... More

Note: This restaurant appears twice once in Manilva and also in Puerto de la Dequesa, Manilva so Trip Advisor please merge them to avoid confusion We eat here regularly and these guys are desperate (almost too much so) to please. We always feel they must think we are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (very heavily disguised, of course) Excellent

We thought we would give this place a go, we were not impressed. The staff were very rude to my fiance by telling me that he couldn't sit beside me because he would be in the way. And rolled her eyes when i didn't know what he wanted to drink when he was gone to the bathroom. Food was quite... More
