We have been visiting Cervantes for many years and never have we had a bad meal. Although the restaurant was busy the service was great and attentive. We chose the fish paella for the 3 of us. Lots of fish, octopus, squid and prawns and mussels. Very tasty. Very filling. The complimentary honey run is always appreciated at the end... More

First night had steak which was tough and not very nice at all, gave them another chance another night had a fish platter which was tasteless have had many fish platters in different restaurants and this was by far the worst, wouldn't recommend at all not very reasonable either.

We love this restaurant for the quality of their steaks. They also come with optional delicious sauces too! The flambe strawberries are also highly recommended. Very pleasant serving staff.

If you manage to become a regular at this restaurant you will be treated like royalty and fauned all over. For the rest of the customers expect, wrong wine, food not properly coocked, crab sticks not crab. Your meals served when it suits the cook. (So not at the same time as your companion ). Disinterested staff who avoid you... More

This is an excellent restraunt we liked it so much we had three evening meals here. I had the stroganoff one night and fillet steak with garlic for the other two with the crepes for dessert. Service is a little slow but you dont mind waiting for excellent tasting food. The price is good and so is the atmosphere. 10/10

Ate here 3 times in our 4 week stay in Playa Blanca, the steaks are the best we found, hence the return trips. Always pretty busy, a good sign. Service is warm and friendly. I'd also recommend the Irish Coffee, made fresh at your table, a real treat to finish off a great meal.

Great restaurant, the food is great especially the steaks and jacket potatoes. The waiters were always helpful and friendly. The views from the restaurant over the sea are great and good for people watching as they pass by the restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Managed to reserve a table for 4 and seated on verandah. Nice friendly people (run by two brothers and one of their wives). Ate there three times in a fortnight and enjoyed every meal. Had a bit of trouble getting table in the open as there were two tables reserved by one couple who ate there every night for a... More
