This was probably the worst place I have been to in Playa Blanca and I have lived here for three years and eaten out every single week.
On arrival I asked what the house wine was. The waiter decided to make us the victim of his stupid sense of humour and told us the house wine is from Catalonia and is dreadful and to pick another, which made all the people on other tables laugh at our expense. Not a good start!! He then told us he has been trying to get his boss to buy in a Rioja from Lanzarote...in turn insulting our intelligence about wines from Lanzarote!!!! I informed him that Rioja is a wine region in mainland Spain, he was not best pleased. So his attempt at up selling to a more expensive bottle of wine and airing his political views about regions of Spain, we ordered another bottle. They didn't have the one we chose. So we chose yet another.
The starter was incorrect and was obviously my husbands fault (does garlic bread and fried peppers sound similar to you?)
On ordering the main course, I asked what comes with the fish and he said 'you tell me'
I said 'no, you tell me'
He said 'no, you tell me'
How on earth has this kind of service not been noticed before!! Its always very busy, so we presumed it was because it was a great place to eat. The prices are incredibly cheap and to be fair, the food was ok. But the whole dining experience for us was ridiculous, and I cannot believe with all the amazing places to eat Playa Blanca has to offer, one like this slips through the net. Needless to say....we will NOT ever be returning!!!!
