The welcome was good. The waiters quickly found us a table in a busy restaurant. Drinks arrived promptly. A bit of delay for the staff coming to take our order but nothing to be overly concerned about. The food was actually quite good and the canarian potatoes delicious. However, what let this place down was the way we were then... More

When we came back a bit later we went in and were served by very friendly people. I originally planned to have pasta but then I saw the couple... More

We like this place and go back there year after year. It seems the have cracked the formula of good food, good service and good value. And it is located right next to the car park and Taxi drop off at the Old Harbor. My tip is to go for the Lamb Shank.

But the there was a simply steak which should have been medium rare (the other 2 were rare and perfect) but it was in... More
