“got told off for not leaving a big enough tip”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

yes that is no joke we had no change so paid with a 50 note and there was only 50cent change left, my boyfriend said sorry I have no more change but keep what is left and the man bought it back and said it wasn't a tip after going back and forth i felt So embarrassed we actually bought another drink which we didnt want so we could break into another large note to leave a larger tip.

I would like to add that we had eaten there 3 nights before and experienced a lovley meal so this is why we returned ( plus on the first meal we left a 4euro tip so how cheeky of them!!!! ) we would have eaten there again but will certainly not return in the future.

very disappointing

“Best Food In Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

My title says it all been visiting playa for 11 years and always visit here. 3 times this year, best Steak I have ever eaten, chateaubriand is the best and so tender.

Just book as it gets very busy but it's well worth the wait.

“EXCELLENT VALUE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had the Menu del dia several times in this restaurant and couldn't fault it for both value and taste. The service is excellent and I would highly recommend it.

“GOOD FOOD AND VALUE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Stopped here a couple of time for lunch. Excellent food and the prices are superb. They do a three course lunch for 8.50 Euro's!

Staff friendly and service great.

Would definitely recommend.

“Still wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We've visited this restaurant many times and this time didn't let us down they staff are friendly and the food is excellent. The steaks are wonderful. Please do not let the look of the place put you off, it is a basic looking place but it's the food and friendliness of the staff that make this special and great value for money. Three starters with beers, three fillet steaks with a bottle of wine and a soft drink and a dessert and liquors all for E64. The only point I'd make is that they were extremely busy on both our visits this holiday, I would probably book to ensure you get a table. Enjoy!
