Went as a couple for dinner and breakfast - the Arabic pizza was unique and quite good. Cheap, cold San Miguel. Tasty Sangria (pricey, until they gave us an extra two small glasses at the end of our meal, for no extra charge). They also gave us free appetizers, which we enjoyed. The breakfast was nothing special, but the coffee... More

After reading all the great reviews we went here for dinner and ordered the seafood platter. Price was pretty good and the staff friendly and efficient Unfortunately the meal was not up to expectation. The prawns and the whole snapper was deep fried until it was basically a mush, powdery and oily mess. There is no need to cut into... More

This place definitely deserves its reputation on trip advisor, by far it's the best place to have good food.

The owner ( Simon if I am not mistaken)... More

It was lovely to receive a small starter and a shot of grandpas old cough medicine on the house which we were not expecting at all. Great hospitality, great food and... More

We were given free sweetcorn fritters to start, which were delicious. We tried two veggie dishes and they were lovely with loads of flavour. The owner is really friendly and went round saying hello to everyone. Even got free sangria afterwards too which was lovely. They also do good sandwiches with really nice (unsweetened!) baguettes - just ask them to... More
