We were staying at the hotel closest to the restaurant and decided to try something different for lunch. Bread was fresh with a delicious sauce and our meals arrived quite quickly after ordering. Good portion size and very tasty food. We were so impressed with the main course that we ordered dessert which was to die for. Overall, it was... More

We had dinner twice in a few days at this restaurant. Both experiences were very positive: excellent food also for children, good atmosphere, especially in the patio, all along with a very profesional service, also when it comes to wine´s suggestion.

Lovely food, especially the rations. The goats cheese and red pepper salad is simply delicious and the straw chips a lovely change. We also have the cheese, gambas pil pil (could do with a little more chilli, but very tasty) and the sepia, which was lovely. We followed this with some of their home made puddings - chocolate brownie, crepe,... More

My husband and I walked in on a weekend before the busy season started. We got a nice table inside but with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. Things started off well, with tasty, crusty bread and a delicious cream sauce. I ordered grilled octopus, which was tender and flavorful. My husband ordered the tuna steak, which came... More

We decided to sit inside and treat ourselves to a bottle of wine and some grilled fish and squid. Room was quiet with a couple of other couples eating. Waiter was very nice , good welcoming manner with a... More
