“A lovely meal in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a meal here last week and had a lovely evening. The setting is so pretty with all the fairy lights. The owners were very friendly and informative. They were very accomedating for my special diet of no gluten or dairy I had quite a few options on the menu. Food was lovely and tasty and everyone enjoyed their meals. We went on a Sunday and there was entertainment of spanish dancing. Would definately recommend seeing as it made the evening.

“Very nice meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We enjoyed our meal at Santiago although we were seated inside the night we visited, due to the risk of rain that evening. Finding your way in is tricky - it might be a good idea to have a sign on the locked front door to explain to guests where they need to go! The service and food was good - international rather than Spanish - but a little bit on the pricey side compared with the other restaurants in town. The staff were really friendly and welcoming.

“ok but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We were a bit disappointed after reading all these good reviews. Yes, the restaurant is in a nice garden. But the food is just ok, nothing special. The hosts are friendly but you can see and feel that they are no "naturals". And...it's only for tourists, you won't find any locals here (which says enough). It also was our most expensive diner during a 2-weeks holiday.

“Pricey and sometimes mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

They can't seem to get the consistency that their prices should demand...I have been disappointed more often than delighted
