Whilst out for a walk and doing some shopping on this trip we found ourselves hungry and near here and... More

Was in Benidorm for 4 nights and ate most meals here! The food for both breakfast and dinner is homely and tasty and it's as cheap as chips! All the staff are lovely, especially Karen who makes you feel at home

I popped in here with my two children whilst staying at a nearby hotel. What a lovely little place! Our food was delicious and believe me I have very fussy children but they both ate everything on their plates. My lasagne was homemade and so were the chips, my meal was simply delicious and if we ever come back to... More

First time in Benidorm for 25 years. Walked along front, and visited strip, but kept going back to this little bar where we were given a lovely welcome and really good food at good prices. Not on the main road, but tucked away down a side street near the Poseidon Hotel, worth a visit.
