“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We've all been there...at the tourist trap. This time we knew it in advance as it takes no genius to figure it out from the exterior and sun-bleached pictures of available dishes. Still, we were starving and thought "At least we can get something here and move on". Well, I'm naïve...

There's no point going into details as others have already done this, I'll just summarize:
* If you opt for a "large" beer/drink (as opposed to a "small") you really get a LARGE beer. 1 liter to be exact which will set you back 10€. Same for soft drinks. Of course one can always argue that you get what you order...but still, you know what I mean.
* The food...what can I say? Even for a tourist trap this was by far my worst experience for two weeks in Spain.
* 3 tapas, 2 spaghetti and 4 drinks set us back 70€ which I only can describe a complete rip-off.

Luckily we found other places both before and after this, that was on the exact opposite side of the scale.

“Wouldn't go back”
Reviewed August 13, 2009

No drinks prices offered with menu so asks for smallest size Coke for kids. They get pint at 5 Euro, plus the 7% tax which of course didn't appear on the food menu. Not impressed by the food and felt taken in. Wouldn't go back.
