“Great menu, service and food.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We often visit this restaurant. It's owned by a British couple. It offers great value, €13 for two courses. The menu is varied and its always difficult to choose what to have as there are so many choices. The food is always tasty and well presented. The service is very friendly and efficient and the restaurant has a good atmosphere.

“Beware special offers!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We were recommended by a friend to try this restaurant and the food was good, but the whole experience was marred by an incident over the wine. At the start of the evening we were asked what we wanted to drink and we ordered 2 bottles of wine, one sweet for my mothers friend, the other dry red, neither of them were house wines. We were given the menus and chose meals off the special Menu del Noche, which we noticed included half a bottle of house wine per person. As we ordered we mentioned that as we had already ordered and started to drink the more expensive wine, we presumed they would make an adjustment to the bill by deducting the cost of 2 bottles of house wine or we could pay the Menu del Noche price and then pay extra for the wine. The waitress told us no they did not do this, they used to, but "people took advantage". She said we could have the extra wine, but as we already had ordered and were drinking the other wine we said we couldn't drink any more but could we take it home? So at the end of the meal she asked us if we wanted white or red wine to take home, we said we would have a bottle of each. She said "Oh, you want 2 bottles?" We said yes please as there were 4 of us eating off the special menu, 4 x half a bottle = 2 bottles. She duly brought them. We were made to feel as if we were trying to get something we were not entitled to, which made us feel very uncomfortable. The whole incident could have been avoided if we had been given the menus first and/or when we ordered wine, it had been pointed out about the half bottle being included. We then could have been free to make whatever choice given the full facts. We wouldn't return.

“Great menu choice - menu of the day exceptional value”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Great food together with attentive service. Excellent value - the canapés were an added bonus! We were a group of 7 and all had great meals. We ate inside, which was air conditioned (what bliss to be out of the heat). Service was great. Would thoroughly recommend.

“By far the best Restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We've been travelling to this general area for over 10 years and always relied on just one or two Restaurants in Torrevieja where "quality" food and service can always be expected. So when we get a verbal recommendation for Frissan in San Miguel we had high hopes, and they didn’t disappoint. We would now regard them as the best we have experienced. The sheer quality of the food, service and value for money is without doubt worth a 15 minute or so drive to the sleepy town of San Miguel.
To top it off the wonderful waitress (Scottish) is absolutely brilliant at her job, makes everyone feel welcome and couldn’t be more helpful.
Big choice, simply magic food, just go. You won’t be disappointed.
But its frequently full so best to phone ahead - just to be sure they can fit you in. Tel: 966 723 485 or 687 948 074
