We used to love visiting this restaurant in previous years but although the food and prices are still good, the service was very slow over our three visits here this year. On one occasion when we only wanted a light meal, we waited over an hour for just seafood soup (which tasted great). Other customers were giving up and leaving... More

The staff were friendly and service was efficient even... More

Had a pretty awful experience here. We were seated quickly and the drinks arrived swiftly but then a very very long wait for some very average and relatively expensive food whilst listening to a bloke play Guantanamera on an organ (honestly - think Benidorm at its worst). We asked for the bill and we were ignored again. Eventually got to... More

Just spent 10 smashing days in this great little country, ate here twice, nearly 4 times! First day I just arrived and getting used to the area so I wandered in and had some garlic prawns & chips, no it's not rocket science to present that but with a beer it went down very nicely. A few days later I... More

We came here quite late, about 9pm. Good atmosphere and music on all evening which is nice. Staff very friendly and funny. The waiter spoke to you by first name the whole time. But there was only one waiter so he was very busy serving everyone. Our food took over 1 hour but we weren't in a rush so was... More

We didn't eat here as were half board at the hotel but went for a drink a few times. Lots of visitors eating here and all enjoyed their meals, very reasonable prices.

It's a good place to watch the football and boxing. Foods ok and staff pleasant enough. Live bands are great in the garden.
