“Phony sidewalk table charge, but good food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We had pizza on an outside table, but noticed a Supplemental Terrazas charge of 2.50euros on the bill. Their phony way of adding charges to the bill to trick tourist into paying more money.Pizza was good, but we wouldn't go back for their trickery.

“Forget the entrecote ( and do'nt look for smiles)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

This restaurant is very slightly off the main tourist track, we chose it because we fancied a good steak, big mistake.
Perhaps we should have chosen pizza, the bien cuit steaks were thrown onto our table about 10 mins after ordering, about 1/3 of the steak was edible, and about half of the blackened chips similarly, there was no salade.
The service was certainly fast but extremely sullen, I've had much better experience in Macdonalds.

“OMG...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We probably shouldn't have expected too much for 12.90 euros for tapas - but we only paid 15 (Cometacinc) the night before for delicious tapas.
The food is all frozen and either fried up or thrown in an oven to heat up - I can do that at home. Needless to say we left most of it.
Considering other reviews, maybe we just picked the wrong food, but we won't be back to check!

“Good&Tasty International Dishes Options !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

Food is really nice/tasty and it is always diffcult to make up my mind to select 2 dishes from their daily lunch menu specials. Good culinary selection of different genres: i always have their indian dishes which are always really tasty (the raviolis with the Blue Cheese sauce is also nice) .

For 10.50 EUR you can pick one entrée+one main course+drink and bread which is really filing so you have your money's worth. Its also nice to have the possibility to eat at their terrasse area which is very enjoyable if you have some sun !
