“Very enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant with a group of eight and were really impressed with how friendly and accommodating they were. We mostly had the Menu del dia which at €11.50 was good value for this area. Our two teenage girls were given a meal to order of macaroni cheese and everything was served with a smile by the staff. The fish soup and mussels were lovely, as was the seafood paella and fiduea. The ice cream was also delicious! The lady owner was appreciative of our attempts at Spanish and was very charming. A lovely lunch- thank you

“first stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The weather was mixed on the day we were there so took the opportunity to sit in this place just on the path overlooking the sea.

It promised to be alright as we sat down as there were a few in, a visit to the washrooms took us through a very pretty ding room and past a very clean kitchen. We ordered fish as we only wanted a light lunch, bread came and a glass of house wine offered to us as an incentive to enter.

The fish was quite acceptable to the four of us but nothing acceptable, having read the reports since our return we are still not disapointed. There must be better but no better view than here.

Note ... there is a good choice of places if you have the time to wander.

“Ripped Off ?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2011

We ate at this restaurant recently and the food was just average but acceptable. Beautiful location overlooking the sea.
Three people dined and we ordered butter for bread and were charged 1 euro per small single portion = 3 euro for three single portions of butter. I really feel this was a rip off - also 1 small plate of chips was 5 euro. Thought both were overpriced in particular the butter for the type of restaurant. So beware if you eat here it seems like each small things is priced individually !!
