This was our first meal after arriving at our villa nearby. A lovely friendly lady served us speaking excellent English. The food and the house wine were really good.

Staff very friendly, very good English. Food was beautiful and fresh, prices really reasonable. Cheap beer and snacks. Large beer €2!. Luitza spoke really good English, explained the menu. Vegetarian food available. Live music on Saturday night (dancing optional! ). If we ever go back, we would go here.

Had a great evening here. Family run and the owners are hilarious and really put the effort in to entertain you. The food was amazing, the chorizo in red wine, black pork and lime pie were all perfect!
