“Up there with the competition in fish alley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

In a pedestrianised street with two well known and frequented restaurants this seems a welcome addition. Although the menu looks typically spanish there are a few dishes not usually available at the local competition and they are served up with more thought and attention to appearance than is usual elsewhere. Quality and taste has not suffered and when the bill arrives it seems moderate for the overall experience. We took their card and will return.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Located at the end of the side street which has many restaurants side by side with very friendly and good service. Clearly the owner runs this restaurant as he was very attentive to all his patrons. When we asked for a table outside it was no problem to just carry one from the interior and add to the many existing occupied al fresco diners! Slow roasted meats were enjoyed and a fresh sorbet to finish the evening off. A complimentary liquer ( home made) to accompany the bill is very much the way in this area and is a nice touch. Again the street hawkers are a nuisance but at least they heed you when told that you are not interested and they must do business or else they wouldn't continue.

“Good but dosnt stand out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

I frequently visit San Pedro and have a long list of regular favourite restaurants, on my last trip I decided to try one I had never been to and whilst this was very good and I have no complaints competition in the area is tough.
Service is friendly, price is average for the area, which is reasonable. Usually my husband and I would share a bottle of wine however on this occasion drank by the glass and it was very reasonable.

The interior decoration is lovely, however due to the nice weather we sat outside, nice little street.

“Top quality food from a varied menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Located off a quiet side street this restaurant has been recently refurbished and is well run with attentive friendly staff. The food is excellent quality and will suit a group with different tastes offering fresh fish, steak and even curry. You will not be disappointed.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This restaurant is just a tad away from being a great place.They give you very large plate full of food but there is one thing. They put to much salt on every thing so just tell them not to put a lot of salt on your food. Then it will be worth a visit.
