“close to the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We had dinner at salinas. Good food for reasonable price. Good portions. If you want to have dessert, it might be a good idea to skip or share the entree.

“Food was alright. Service was terrible.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Phoned for a lunch booking. 5pm was the earliest. Once seated we were told the kitchen would not be open until 6pm - no tapas, no starters, just drink yourself silly for the next hour.

Food was alright, not outstanding. Service was terrible.

“What a lovely view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We had an early lunch of curry here. This is a stunning location with a view of the beach. The food was really good and hearty except for the portion of rice which was only about two tablespoons for some reason. We asked for more and it was then added to the bill as extra rice. But they did take it off upon request without any issues at all. The coffee was also good.

“You can't get full on a view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Unfortunately the experience was disappointing. The service was unprofessional and slow, and one of the dishes requested (salmon) was under-cooked. The restaurant was not full and yet service was very slow nonetheless. The restaurant also boasts a great view of the beach - but to ensure you benefit please request to be seated on the top floor, as the second floor's view is blocked by a house.
