The food here is mainly pizza and pasta. There is nothing wrong with it - standard fare but nothing special. The service here is very poor. The waiters don't seem very organised with set seating areas or anything so you could be served by as many as 4 different waiters over the course of the meal. Consequently no one really... More

We opted for B&B for our second trip to Martinhal such was the consistently poor food and hit and miss service in all 3 restaurants. We arrived late the first evening and decided to eat here. Food and service were as per previous year, both poor. The atmosphere is chaotic but represents this place's only positive, the kids can roam... More

Ate here on several evenings. Food generally Italian. Children's buffet from 5. Service excellent and food quality good without being exceptional. In middle of Martinhal and next to bunnies and small children play area.

The food was overcooked and not worth the money. Bit like bad pub food. They have a play area outside but none of it has shade which isn't very child friendly.

rubbish food, even worse service. The food bordered on being inedible. Wrong food, being made to wait far, far too long for a replacement (especially for a child).

Food is nothing special, pizzas, pasta and salads. The atmosphere puts you completely at ease with young children. The children's buffet for ten euros is great as there is no waiting and a variety of options for all 3 courses. Romeu is a joy.

Only open from 5pm, this place serves a great children buffet with different hot meals and/or pizza and chips. Costs 9 euros per child. Reasonable selection of adult meals - simple but good food

Great spot on the village square with access to the play area for the kids. Staff are excellent with the little people too. Kids have a buffet where they can choose from pastas, pizza and a good range of veg, it's €9 per child. I can recommend the tuna steak, really good. The breadknife had the chicken which was also...

Hard to describe what food they serve, its supposed to be Italian but doesnt really feels like it. All dishes are overcomplicated, with additional ingredients that dont really fit to the dish itself or are not really Italian version of dishes (breasola included gherkin and slices of radish)

This is the most casual of restaurants in martinhal resort, but to be honest, I enjoyed the food the most. Skip pizzas and go for the tuns steak, cod bruschettas, meats or fish. Its awesome! But the best bit is the staff and how they entertain kids - it must be part of their training!!! They are so friendly, that... More
