We have eaten at this restaurant at least once on every holiday we have had in this area for the last 8 years and it is always good. The staff are very friendly and the food is very nice. Always a pleasure to dine here.

This is a nice restaurant. It is situated in a strip of restaurants in the middle of the town. You can sit inside or as we did outside. Really friendly and helpful staff. We shared a paella and it was excellent and very well priced. Highly recommended.

Lovely family run restaurant with excellent food and service. Good varied menu at affordable prices. Mama is the best cook ever. You have to visit when in Late Cala.

What a lovely restaurant! Service is always familial and the food simple but outstanding. We would recommend the garlic chicken and pork fillet in mushroom sauce followed by skewer of strawberries and hot chocolate sauce. Fabulous food and great value with free digestives to round off an excellent repas. Booking essential at peak times.

This resturant is always popular all year. It is cosy inside in the cooler months but a little warm in the summer. The outdoor terrace is popular in the summer but can be very hot for early evening diners due to the sun. Booking is very advisable. It's menu doesn't seem to change and clients keep coming back, so they... More
