Nice food with a very relaxed setting. Although we all enjoyed the meal the menu is limited and we thought it was a bit on the pricy side.The kids couldn't resist having the half roasted chicken as the smell of it slowly roasting is mouthwatering! On the whole very average compared to other restaurants we have visited.

One of the nicest restaurants in Cala'n Porter, sometimes you have to wait for a table but it's worth it. The Filet Mignon is excellent.

Whilst there was nothing to complain about, nor was there anything to get excited about. Food was nice although it did have an 'out of a jar and microwaved' feel about it. Certainly not as 'home cooked with fresh ingredients' as other, cheaper, places. Also the sangria is way overpriced (can be found at half the price at other restaurants).... More
