“Super seafood paella”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is a phenomenally busy restaurant towards the end of the harbour side. We managed to get one of the last tables when we spotted that they did a great deal on seafood paella for two and a bottle of wine - including in the evenings. The paella was very good indeed, and not just rice as we had feared, but plenty of lovely seafood. The bill came promptly and we were in and out within an hour, but fair enough as others were waiting for our table, and we'd been quoted a wait of an hour for paella at anotehr establishment earlier in the evening!

“Pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We came across this lovely restaurant on a recent trip to Puerto Mogan. We had half board in our hotel but decided to venture down to the harbour for dinner mid-week. I suppose our expectations were not high as this is a touristy area. However we were pleasantly surprised. We shared chateaubriand for two with lots of sides and a lovely bottle of sauvignon blanc, the house wine. The bill which was 58 euro was accompanied by gorgeous honey rum shots! The food was delicious and the customer service was excellent. We went back again for lunch on the last day of our holiday. This time we had a lunch special at 7.95 euro, hake, salad and Canarian potatoes. Again absolutely delicious and the fish was so fresh - very impressed!

“Great Food Very Poor Memories”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Ate here at lunch time and the service and food were excellent. I had the seafood stew and ity was superb ! My wife had the homemade Lasagne and agaian was top quality and cooked from fresh.
The staff were very good , the young waitress did her job very well but found it difficult to smile, shame really.
It was that good we decided to book the restaurant for my wifes birthday. The Lady took all our details, name,time etc. On arrival at the pre booked time we found the restaurant full and no table reserved . When we questioned the same lady she seemed not to recall us ( from only 5 hours earlier ) and said they may have a table in 20 to 40 minutes, not good when we had booked !!!!! We ate elsewhere.
Shame, hope the owner reads Tripadvisor.

“Great location - good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We ate here one lunchtime and had a really pleasant meal. Was more of a quick bite experience for us (calamari, tuna salad sandwich and chicken nuggets for the kids) the food was decent and the service was friendly and attentive.
