“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

This is a fantastic place. Food, service, atmosphere, location all great.
Not all the usual tapas, but the chefs real imagination and skill has created some amazing dishes and tastes.
Also, check out the huge selection of gins!

So good, we went back 2 days later, and it was even better! The tuna and pork cheeks were a firm favourite for all 10 of us, closely followed by everything else we tried.

If you're in Ayamonte, you simply cannot miss this.

“excellent modern dishes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The place to go if you fancy nice food, on the oldest bar in Ayamonte right in the corner of placa laguna. Just put some new dishes on the menu, the sushi absolutely amazing, little cupcake with green and red peppers and a mixer of fish pate. Ofcours the cilindro de ternera with mushroom sauce. the bar is nice in a old Spanish style. recommend this place to everyone. don't forget to order a nice gin tonic after

“Mixed service and food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Have eaten here numerous times before but on the last 2 visits have been let down firstly by the service and on the second occasion by both service and food.
The first occasion the food was really good quality but almost thrown on the table by the waiter. On the last occasion 2 of the meals were the usual excellent quality the other 2 one was served cold and when this was pointed out was returned only luke warm with no apology given at the end of the meal. The other was of average quality.
We have had both fantastic food and service on all our previous visits and have recommended to friends who visit Ayamonte often. We will try once more on our next visit as this restaurant was previously one of our favourites.

“Great restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We, two couples, ate here two night and stopped by for tapas and gins before eating elsewhere another night. Enjoyed everything about this place. Friendly, attentive staff. It is run and owned by a lady from Cork, Ireland. It is on the corner of the main square so busy with lots of families and kids playing in the square - adds to the atmosphere. Excellent tapas and main courses. The tuna rolled in sesame seeds and Fillet steak on Stones were standout. Baigiorri Crianza and Paco Y Lola white both good.

Gins and tapas for 4 was 40 EU. Evening meals for 4 with 2 or 3 bottles of wine 100 and 120 EU.

“Poor Paella!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Made this the first restaurant we visited as the reviews we had read sounded great, maybe we should have had Tapas but we all choose the Paella.
This arrived within 15 minutes which made me think it was cooked earlier and not to order. It was bland and not that good.
We also had the prawns in salt which were good.
We will go back to try other dishes but will not have the paella!
