We found this lovely restaurant on the last night of our stay. It had been recommended by people we met whilst we were in Playa Blanca. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Staff were extremely pleasant. If you can get a window seat you have an amazing view of the sea and the ferry coming in and also the... More

In a 4 week holiday we visit this place at least a couple of times. It is not cheap so is saved for special nights. Best to book in advance for a window table overlooking the sea. It's a bit old fashioned in that they cook/flambe many meals at your table but these days that makes a nice change. All... More

This restaurant is warm and friendly with good sea views. It is a favourite here. You will be warmly welcomed and the menu is very special. Some dishes are grilled in the open, others come from the kitchen. All are of the highest quality. We have been many times and are never disappointed. I even got a surprise cake for... More

An enjoyable return visit to this restaurant overlooking the Playa Blanca promenade. A small restaurant but extensive menu and this time we chose the beef stroganoff, cooked by the table. Good quality, good service, and well worth the return visit. To get the best tables it is advisable to book ahead.

We'd visited this restaurant on our last visit, and once again found it a well run restaurant. We ordered the mixed fish between us and it was fine, although two of the fishes were quite "bony"! Reasonably priced, and in a good location overlooking the harbour beach area. Service as last time was first class.
