Not the cheapest restaurant in the village but something for everyone on the menu. For a non English speaking area, this restaurant made us welcome on several occasions and provided us with lovely food. They even tempted us to try things out of our comfort zone , free of charge. Well worth a visit , the Sangria is lovely, perfect... More

We ate here 4 times during our one week stay in this charming resort. The other restaurants didn't match up. I am allergic to fish but had no problem with the food. The steak was delicious. My husband enjoyed the fish dishes and one night we shared a meat paella especially prepared for us. Very attentive service from the owner... More

We were on a tour and the tour company took us to this restaurant. The menu was very touristic, paella with chips ( more chips than paella), but the fish soup was ok. However, I wouldn't have chosen this restaurant if I had been on my own.

If you are looking for somewhere to eat and can't decide where to go around the harbour- this is the best I've found so far! My partner loves seafood and had the grilled fish- generous portions, well Cooked and with a very tasty green herby garlic side sauce. I had breaded frying steak (which I originally thought was breaded chicken-... More

Have eaten here on 3 occasions, will be 4 later. Perfectly cooked, delicious food inc the steak as wanted a change from fish. Service is gentile and pleasant, totally unhurried, unlike some of restaurant's on the seafront. Very much enjoyed Christmas day dinner here.

We have had a week locally and ate out in 3 local restaurants- this was our favourite, I loved the greenhouse display of ferns covering the ceiling, looking out over the port, watching the ferries come and go, friendly service and , last but not least, very good food. Very strong on fish, ( loved the sardines and prawns in... More

Bearing in mind I had chosen to holiday in a small port in the north of the island, I had been having some difficulty getting places to eat. The waiter here was very helpful - and whilst the food I ended up with was not exactly exciting or high class vegetarian food, it was their willingness to find me something... More

Lovely owner who was chatty and kind, great location and nice restaurant. Only let down was the fish platter - starter of seafood salad was delicious but the whole cooked fish was poorly seasoned and undercooked. Would advise any other dish and definitely go here! Lovely restaurant.

We stopped off here on a island tour ti have lunch. The food was good particularly the fish and we had a three course meal with wine for only 11 euros. Good value.
