“Honest food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

This establishment has a small menu and a daily specials board. This does not distract from the fact that every thing that we ordered was lovely. Fresh garlic prawns, shoulder of lamb with mint sauce and gavy and fresh fish all cooked to a high standard. Every where was clean and the staff very friendly lots of local people use this which is always a good sign.

“very enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Visited this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Los Cristianos - nice to see Pedro who was a waiter at the Roma for many years - steak was really good, excellent quality and cooked to perfection - only dissappointing meal was the Sole on the Set three course menu not much sole - very thin, and also Prawn cocktail could do with more prawns apart from that everything else we had was very good, a good selection on three course set menu, husband also had shoulder of lamb which he said was excellent, nice atmosphere and cosy - we did book in advance each time and I am sure we will return next year.

“Small and reliable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

English speaking. Reliable food - different specials board daily. Different and original desserts. Not cheap and no view (being tucked away off a side street) but worth a visit.

“Great Home cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Have eaten here in the past and decided to go back again, was not disappointed. The belly draft is cooked to perfection, served with fluffy mash, roast and fresh vegetables, with very tasty gravy. Sunday lunch is also worth a tasting. Staff were excellent and made you feel very welcome.
