“Perfect New Year's Eve menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Excellent value amid surrounding tourist traps. Best restaurant in Puerto de Mogàn, on the beachfront to boot. Would eat there again anytime and got outstanding service from the friendly staff.

“Lovely different food on beachfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a cut above the rest with food that is not found elsewhere on the beachfront.
Authentic dishes with a Spanish flavour - hence you get many Spanish eating here at lunchtime.
Starter portions are also huge so it's easy to order any of these for a lunchtime meal. They are also unusual and different.
Small frontage that you could easily walk past if you haven't read any reviews.
Go and find out as you won't be disappointed.

“Nice place for lunch by the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We had nice salads for lunch here! It's not that it was that special, it's just that we'd had such lousy food at several of the other surrounding restaurants. would probably have given it a 3 normally, but compared to the other places nearby, it certainly was worth it!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

My Girlfriend and I ate here on a recommendation from one of the reception staff from our hotel - I'm glad we did! We had the duck cured ham salad and Tuna Steak for our mains and both were absolutely sensational as was the hot chocolate pudding for dessert. It was also reasonably priced considering it's beachfront location and we got the impression that this was a restaurant that many of the locals frequented which is always a good sign. Overall a fantastic experience and the best restaurant we ate at during our holiday and I can't recommend it enough!
