This is our fourth time at Combatentes. I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. The food is superb. The staff are very efficient. The service is excellent. The main waiter is so welcoming with a wicked sense of humour. We will return again for definite.

Fantastic food and good service. Recommend the fish soup, tuna steak and the mixed meat skewer. Small place but had a nice atmosphere.
