We sat outside and enjoyed 4 courses along with chocolate treats mid course. All meant to delight the taste buds and it did. To include fillet steak at this price and a bottle of wine per couple it was a bargain but then we also had deserts and coffee along with a liqueur.....now that's special. Excellent place to eat and... More

Staying at camping up the road and found this when walking searching for food. The food is really good with such friendly staff who made us feel very welcome. Very good value for money if order from the 3 course selection. Would recommend the hot fried custard with ice cream

Second visit for menu del dia. In my opinion, unbeatable. Terrific choices to suit most tastes and fantastic value. Extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely revisit when we return in the autumn. The allioli and tomato bread delicious and so was the lamb - nom nom

Four courses plus bottle of wine between 2 plus coffee for only €9.90. Also includes bread and alioli. Large choice for each course of at least 6 items. Eat in or out on the terrace. Pleasant Spanish staff who speak some English. Spacious restaurant and no long delays for service.

We found this restaurant excellent value for money? They could not do enough for us. The excellent range of dishes for menu del dia very good. There house wine was also very good. Even though there were quite a few of us they managed to serve everyone with the main choice of food they wanted.

We visited this restaurant with friends and we were all supprised at the wide of variety on the menu. Fish, meat and vegetarian options. The standard menu at 21 euros included 3 corsets with half a bottle of wine and coffee per person. I was disappointed with my lamb dish but all the other meals were pleasing. Staff were friendly...

Well worth a visit , mostly Spanish speaking staff but all will try to assist. Menu is in English, German & Spanish of course. Parking was easy this visit but on summer can be difficult - well worth the walk though

Booked this restaurant for myself and my lady friend, we had no hassle in being escorted to our table and from there on it was very good service, the restaurant was packed to the hilt and they had taken on extra staff to deal with it, the food was top notch as was the service. I would give this restaurant... More
