Had dinner last night and it was ridiculous, requested for Seafood salad but to my surprise it was coated with sugar and also the beef sauce, the only thing they got right was the prawn fried rice which was the one we had.

Was quite empty, food was ok, service was erratic. Maybe if you can speak better Spanish it would be easier. Cheap and filling.

Like many others, I guess, we had a meal here as it was conveniently located just across from the Gran Hotel where we were staying and we fancied a change from local fare. The main courses are very generous so we really didn't need the mixed starter which was quite disappointing. The main courses though were very tasty. There are... More

I was ready to over look the plastic plates and the poor decor, BUT the service was terrible. Given the restaurant was quiet the service was so slow that they missed out on further drink orders and a dessert order. I wonder how they'd cope if it was busy. The food was nice but being treated like we were not... More

i was not expecting great chinese food on the island, but this place (right across from the Gran Hotel) was reasonable. I prefer Mandarin rather than Cantonese style and i had the spicy lamb here.

This is a lousy restaurant with a dingy, depressed and dirty atmosphere, a really small menu selection and right next to a busy road. The food was so bad we paid for our drinks and first course and left. To be avoided.
