“Overpriced!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

After reading some of the reviews, we decided to stop for a coffee in the cafe whilst in san lorenzo.
The food and menu did have a good variety and the food being served looked tasty.
However,I can understand some of the negative reviews that have been left.
Given we only had coffee, the service was extremely slow and I suspect they were not pleased that we were using a table just for drinks. There were several empty tables there which had reserved signs on them which were only lifted after what seemed a long questioning as to if you were planning a proper lunch.
The coffees were also more than we expected- 13 euros for 2 cups in the middle of a sleepy village was steep!

“Lovely restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Our favourite of many visited in the North of the island. Ate in the orchard three times, service always good and friendly, and nice menu with innovative and largely organic menu.

Busy every night, hard to get a table (so book in advance) and given it seats probably 200 its that popular.

Our little girl loved the rocking horse in the orchard which she sat on next to our table, (so it was known as rocking horse restaurant !) and they catered for kids really well.

Daytime is also a cafe (although a separate operating team and kitchen) but is just as nice and easy going.

Definitely for those who want the best location and ambience, and a really good holiday experience - consistently good and kept going back.

“not what it used to be”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

When in Spain we always would spend an evening at this lovely place, hidden in a corner of San Lorenzo. The food is (still) good, but they have extended the garden this year in order to cater to more clients. When we were there, there were large table with parents with uneducated, screaming kids. None of the staff said anything. We had to wait for more than 1 hour before the food arrived. The staff is still very friendly but the kitchen cant handle the large number of people.
Very sad, it used to be a great place, but sorry no more. Maybe in off season.

“A very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Very nice. The "terraza" is very charming. The food was good but nothing really special. Sort
of Italian food, bit pretentious.
The waiters were amiable and efficient. It's located in a very small town, quiet and isolated.
