Didn't really enjoy my visit here. The food was just about ok, but the restaurant felt crowded, with the tables being close together. It felt more like being fed than dining. I was also disappointed that people were allowed to smoke in the restaurant on the tables near the pavement.....with the smoke blowing back on other diners. Not somewhere I... More

and good quality food made this restaurant a standout for us during our recent holiday - chateaubriand for €14 each! We only had that one night but all the meals we ate at this restaurant were very enjoyable and value for money. A typical bill for four adults, including drinks (and usually two courses each) varied between €55 and €80.... More

In our first ten years of visiting Playa Blanca we drove or walked past this restaurant without ever trying it...I think the name put us off! However it is always busy, so we started going there about ten years ago. We could then see why it was so popular. The staff are excellent, efficient and friendly. The menu is extensive... More
