We had lunch one day early September; what can I say? The food was incredible and the service was second to none. Pleasant and very friendly staff...we would have visited again, but sadly we were called back to the UK that very same day. Highly recommended!

This bar was in a good location on the beach. However service was slow and there was a poor choice of cocktails and drinks

We visited here in June, it was a very friendly, lively place. There was a great varied menu and the food was delicious. We also went on the buffet night, again very good food. Entertainment also very good, great atmosphere.

Had a late lunch stop in this bar. Very good service, friendly smiling staff which makes a difference. Lovely tapas and burger. Great view of the beach and people watching. They deserve to be busy because they make a great effort.

The owners are a breathe of fresh air. The staff are marvellous. Friends is relaxed & inviting. Our 3rd time here in 3 years. Still haven't found anywhere better for a laid-back coffee, beer, cocktail or eats in PdA. We have looked hard. :-)

Popped in around brunch time on a Saturday - lovely spot on the beach - patio heaters on during a grey day - chilled music - great food (although if my burger was home made it would have been a 5 star rating!) - they have a breakfast menu until 12 which I'll try next time as I WILL be... More

We had a blast here, great atmosphere with very service minded and friendly staff. Had to wait for a while for a table, but we were well taken care of in the bar while waiting. Ordered a bunch of different tapas dishes, all very good with a great bottle of spanish wine.
