We arrived at 14:00 and the food wasn't served until 16:10, also was uncook. As well very expensive. The staff didn't apologize for any of the mistakes. I can't imagine how slow will be in high season.

I like this place, the view from the terrace is fantastic, overlooking the beach area, and the food is reasonably priced, and the quantity, HUGE!!

We were on the island in November and at least half of the restaurants were closed. None of the places opened inspired confidence but this place somehow drew us in. We were hungry but the unfriendly waitress and tatty menus put us off. We plumped for baguettes with local ham, which was the least expensive item on the menu. They... More

First off, let me say this. I came here with my girlfriend. We're two young people in our twenties on vacation in Spain for a week. From the minute we sat down we felt uncomfortable, the waiter looked at us and said in bad English: "what do you want"? Flabbergasted, but still hungry I replied with a shocked :" I'll... More

Worst eating experience so far in Spain. The tuna was grey and tasted "old". Either it was old or from a tincan. The chips tasted and scented of fish.(probably they used the same oil as for the fish?) My girlfriend tasted the "mixed fried fish" it was dipped in frying oil and was raw in the middle. No crisp at... More
