We enjoyed a Saturday evening meal here, along with the beautiful parrots that are permanent residents. Excellent service and atmosphere with live music. The food portions were HUGE. If we had realised, we wouldn't have had a starter, as we couldn't finish everything that was put in front of us which was a pity. Overall a very enjoyable experience.

As this place catches your eye, you would expect the food to be good but sometimes a nice looking place doesn't mean that the food will be as good. This was the most expensive meals of the holiday and was the worst, totally plain no flavour, I would never return to this place

Lovely spot to sit and have a drink although at €10 for a cocktail it doesn't offer very good value but worth the experience.

Thank RayH301
