“Och Aye”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is the only restaurant we have visited anywhere, which has a Clan Stewart fitted carpet running all the way through, and it looks amazing. There is a large outdoor terrace and the comfortable interior is air conditioned, but not too much. The menu del dia including wine is priced according to your choice of main course, with a selection of starters and desserts included in the price. The steaks and dover sole are lovely, other items can be average, and desserts are good. There is also an a la carte menu at various prices. The staff are polite and helpful and while you are perusing the menu they bring a plate of tapas and hot rolls with ali-oli. Overall a good dining experience. The bar area is very British and there is also a private function room.

“Great entrecote, worst service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

After staying in the entrance room for roughly 2 minutes, we were finally greeted by the waitress. We were seated outside at our choice, and another waiter quickly came to take our drinks. Once he came back to take our meal order, we were told they were out of our first choice of food. After explaining that without our first choice of food, we would leave, he went away to talk to the chef. Coming back he said there had been a miscommunication between him and the chef, who he bad-mouthed, we were able to order our entrecotes. Nothing bad at all to say about the entrecote. It was in fact, great. After our main course meal, we asked to be seated inside for desserts, as it was cold outside. Once re-seated, it took about 8 to 10 minutes before the waitress realized she had completely forgotten us. Quickly running towards our new table, we were given our choices of desserts, which also took longer than we felt necessary. Instantly upon receiving our chocolate mousses, we asked for the check, as we felt we did not want to overstay our welcome. This, too, took longer than it should have.

Great entrecote, the staff need to improve on their customer service.

“Disappointing....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We had high expectations but we were disappointed by the presentation and taste. Disappointing goat cheese salad. Chicken with almost no taste. The rest was nothing more then ok. This was not what we expected.

“Fab service, quality food at low price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We visited this restaurant twice on our hols with our familly. It is beautiful inside and has great outdoor seating. The best thing about this place is the friendly and kind waitress Suzanne she was so lovely to my autistic son and is a credit to the restaurant. Her father owns Leonardo which is also a great restaurant to visit. Had fab cocktails (6 euros). The menu of the day is excellent value you chose your main course price raning from 10 -18 euros and then have a starter, desert and wine/beer included. The meals are beautifully presented although not huge portions. The chef was fab with my son who has special dietary needs and came out to talk to us. will defo be going back when we visit again
