Atmosphere was OK. Mostly tourists. Not many Spanish people though. My paella was not good - the rice was not cooked enough. I then realized why the Spanish avoided this place.

Only called in while walking along the boardwalk but so glad we did. We had Sangria on the large terrace whilst a saxophonist played in the main restaurant. The terrace is well protected from any breeze by a glass wind-breaker so you can sit outside and look out to sea in comfort. Staff were very nice and prices reasonable too.

We had been there earlier when it was called Chez Max, but the new name goes well with the new white design. We were there 3 days before Christmas and although we were few in the restaurant the atmosphere was pleasant and the waiter very helpful. The food was excellent. My husband had a steak, tender and cooked as ordered.... More

Just by the seaside you can visit daytime and evening. Good food and service. Located at Riviera del Sol very easy to find. Very nice during summertime where you can rent lounges and take a swim and eat your lunch.

We paid 30 euros per person for a buffet. The buffet was almost empty on arrival and after an hour it was still the same. The servers then informed us they were out of food. Upon asking the manager for our money back (is some kind of solution) he was verbally abusive and offended. The manager even accused us of... More

Situated right on the beach, with a fantastic view and good food and drinks. The kind of view you will remember the whole holiday from. Good service. A little Belgian infusion to the meny, which we all enboyed. We came back, as everything was good and the view totally amazing.

We enjoyed a great evening! In the Pre-Christmas quietness we had excellent food, music, views, lights & service!! Take the Shrimp Croquettes and do have the grilled live lobster, followed by a crème brûlée à la French... Top!!

Very good cocktails! The views are awesome! Sadly it closes quiet early in October because it cools down a bit but still they let us have a drink and finish it with no hurry:-)
