“Not worth the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We had lunch here or tried to! We had just sat down when the waiter asked for our order.We had no menus.We got the menu full of photographs of the food which to me indicated this was just going to be typically tourist.The food was tasty.Service appalling .With great difficulty we got the bill.We got no placemats or napkins .Our meals came with no knives .I would not return.Shame as venue very pretty.Staff need proper training bill should be produced not pointed out on a Lcalculator.

“Daytime yes, Evening no”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This restaurant and food is fabulous during the daytime so we decided to get dressed up a d splash out on an evening out there. The restaurant is beautiful but there it ends. The two waiters who were working in a not very busy restaurant were neither helpful or pleasant all evening and in fact we were grateful that they had the time for us at all. The starter I ordered was not available, neither were the next three I ordered so I just went for the main. I ordered a 22 Euro fish dish which actually would have been good value for money if the very wide variety of fish was served warm and not absolutely overcooked. My husband had a steak which was okay but expensive for what it was. We were so disappointed as we had looked forward to this meal so much and thought we had found a gem. We will absolutely revisit during the day but never again in an evening.

“Great views and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Newly discovered despite living in Spain a long time. Very classy restaurant and varied menu. We had tapas which was a bit more expensive than usual but the variety of ingredients justified it. Service on the outside terrace was superb so i can only imagine what it might be in the restaurant in an evening. However, it won't be long until we visit for a full blown meal so I will review again then.

“lively town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Lots of bars shops and restaurants along the 332 road through Punta Prima.There is a blue footbridge at the roundabout for access to other facilities across the road.Very busy area both day and night.A good location,with other interesting towns within easy reach by foot,car or public transport.

“Nice setting for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This place is in the old part of Punta Prima. Maybe that's why u don't find it at Tripadvisor when searching for restaurant at Punta Prima. Nice view, good food at reasonable price. We tried tapas, chicken and calamares. Attentive staff to.
