Off the beaten path but worth finding! Staying nearby and limited options for lunch thought we would try O Pirata. Appears to be pool bar/restaurant for small complex. Staff so pleasant and helpful. Hubby opted for the daily special, BBQ monkfish and prawn, excellent choice, I had food envy! I had the shrimp curry, both fabulous. Will be back before... More

Had the biggest ribeye steak I've ever seen. Served by the wonderful Lily. So family friendly. Good value and a lovely atmosphere. We have been before and we will be back

Fabulous lunch, excellent service. I recommend the monk fish and prawn kebab. Wonderful atmosphere, children can splash in their clean pool to cool down or have fun on the trampoline.

Food mundane, waiter try's his best but pushes for wrong options. There is far better available locally I'm afraid to say!

This is a great spot for kids, grab yourself a table by the swimming pool and you can enjoy food and a cold drink while the kids swim in the pool. Food is excellent and I can whole heartidly recommend the Champagne Sangria

We only went once for an evening meal and although food was delicious the service was extremely slow and the elderly waiter got most of the orders wrong. The setting was lovely as outside by the pool and despite the slow service we did enjoy the food. We went in May so don't know what it would be like in... More

Had to try the ribeye after seeing the reviews and I wasn't dissapointed, seasoned perfectly and cooked the same, my partner had the monkish/prawn skewer and said it was the nicest fish she has had in a long time. Can't fault the place, reasonable prices and has a trampoline that we our little one didn't want to get off!!

As per other reviews the monk fish and rib eye steak specials were excellent according to the others I was with. I had sardines to start - near perfect - and mixed kebab which was again superb. They had 4 home made deserts, we had one each and all were great. We had a recommended €20 wine which was very... More
