Love this restaurant as staff always helpful and very friendly does get busy so would never mark down for that. Never let's me down, always opt for more Spanish dishes here followed by a Irish coffee. Love watching them plays boules outside. Always visit here on our holidays.

Steak served cold so sent back and then forgotten by waitress so had to eat after family had finished. No apology and no gesture or discount on the bill. Steak returned luke warm and overcooked.Roast lamb fatty. Lasagne ok. Beware of drinks costs: 4 euros for a coke and slow service to encourage a second round.
