We went there because no other option 10.30pm in isla plana. We were very disappointed with the Gambas al ajillo , calamar a la plancha not tasty, the glasses were not cleaned, we won't go back for sure.

Still a good restaurant basic from the outside put freshened up with ne paint this year, a bonus is they have some English speaking staff now, so try this Restaurant for authentic Spanish dishes you will not be disappointed.

As mentioned by other reviewers, don't be taken in by the outside it's like a tardis. However the only doctor, you may see, is Alphonso, who has a surgery on the next street or maybe Antonio Jesus, the nurse, as he has his health giving glass of vino tinto. Rosa, the cook, does a mean paella to die for. Well... More

This is home cooked, wonderful spanish food served with a smile by lovely... More

It's great fun ordering by pointing at menu and not knowing what's coming. Eaten here four times and always enjoyed the food. They have a snack counter in the bar servers area and... More

This does not look like much from outside or when you immediately enter, you can sit out front on the main street then you come into a old little cafe for a seat chill out and drink beer or a coffee this is very Spanish in Isla it's where most of the locals reside. Go up the step at the... More
