“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We have been here quite a few times now and was recommended by a spanish friend of mine, the food is just fabulous and very reasonably priced. In the summer they have tables out on the terrace and in the winter it is just as lovely inside, very cosy. If you are around the area, then a visit is a must.

“Too noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2011

Lovely terrace, good food and no complaints about the service. The problem is that the road outside the restaurant is very busy and there is a lot of traffic noise, definitely not conjusive to fine dining. I did not find it a relaxing dinner. and it is not on my return to list.

“Fabulous Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

I booked this from Trip Advisor reports as I was in charge of organising the restaurant on the Saturday night of a weekend with friends in Puerto Banus. I chose here as it looked good value with decent food reviews and short taxi ride. Virginia helped me to finalise choices and suggested a set menu, good idea. for so many.
What a great evening, the marinated salmon, goats cheese salad were delicious and the main course of steak, melt in mouth and tuna, beautifully cooked, were excellent.
It was at this point I thought I must have been mistaken at the 3 course inc of half bottle of wine price £39 euros and had a panic but no, it was correct and a cake for the celebration was included. All 18 of us enjoyed it and thougtht the service impeccable.
18 females and some very fussy!!!!!
