“Their BBQ sauce should be avoided.”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Ten out of ten for a fantastic fillet steak, but the BBQ sauce was terrible and did not compliment the meat in any way whatsoever. On the other hand, it complimented the rather poor, inattentive service.

“Visit the Mexican on the Main Street instead!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

After experiencing a brilliant Mexican earlier in the week in Playa Blanco we were really hopeful of what this restaurant had to offer based on its location and busyness.

However we thoroughly disappointed with the quality and value for money.

Please avoid this restaurant and walk a little further into town and go to the the Mexican on the high street.

“Worst meal of the holiday!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We have recently returned from 2 weeks in playa blanca. We came across this place on our 2nd night and as it was busy and in a good location it seemed appealing. Big mistake!!

We ordered Potato Skins to share for starters which I can only describe as a rip off for 8 euros. One each, virtually nothing in them and lacking in flavour.

The Chicken Fajitas seemed to be popular in the restaurant so I gave them a go, again this was devoid of quality of ingredients or flavour, and personally wouldn't give it to the dog!

The only positive I would say for this place was my wife ordered the steak and when it came it was too undercooked for her liking. The staff kindly took it back and cooked it through a bit more for her.

We visited some lovely restaurants in playa blanca but unfortunately this certainly wasn't one of them.

“Great Resteraunt”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We went here on our last night of our holiday and were not disappointed, We ordered two steaks on hot stones that were cooked perfectly and two calzones which were also lovely. The staff couldnt of been friendlier and when we return to playa blanca , we will defiantly come back here.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Excellent location, hospitality and food. Great menu and steaks are always cooked to perfection which certainly can't be said about a number of the other restaurants along the front! Staff are always attentive to your needs. Can't wait to go back again
