Very nice

I had a great tuna salad here and my partner had the Menorcan fish, although it was filletted and not like the other Menorcan fish dishes we had, it was still nice. The service was prompt

The atmosphere was lovely as there was live music and the cocktails were delicious. However, the prawn cocktail had a bit of water left at the bottom of the dish and the steak was not the best cut but as it was on the 'special menu' it was not a bad price.

Went here after pleasant young street lady persuaded us. My friend ordered black Mink paella and I went for Tandoori chicken. The paella was stuck to the bottom of the pan and was therefore burnt and not nice. The Tandoori was a piece of breast with a slab of tandoori paste slapped on top. Tart and unpleasant. Service was reasonable... More

We ate here around four times during our weeks stay with the main attraction being that it has a children's play area! The staff were wonderful in particular the male waiter, our daughter smiled everytime she saw him. The calzone was probably our favourite meal and the pizzas were nice too. Fab service every time.

Unfortunately we had an appalling meal here. Service was nice but food was shocking. Everything saturated in oil. A seafood paella that didn't resemble any paella I'd ever had before. A few bits of fish and swimming in grease. The monkfish dish was either uncooked or just not monkfish at all.

Visited this spotless restaurant twice during our weeks visit to resort good food good service impeccable manners & great with children, they even have safe play area for them. Kitchens are on view & are immaculate & not something you may see in normal review but toilets are immaculate too which goes to prove hygienne is important to their status... More

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, reasonable prices. Had a lovely bottle of Rioja for 16 euros and the Tornado steak was superb. Great location and it has a small play park for children.
