We came on a repeat visit. My grandmother-in-law, who has been coming to Benidorm since the 70s, said the ribs are not the same as before the restaurant changed hands, but they were very good, and the same as I remembered them from my last visit in 2008. The sauce really is amazing. They were very soft, literally dropping off the bone. The ribs seem to be cooked plain, however, with the sauce added on before serving. I think they would be even better if basted in the sauce during cooking.

Staff very friendly and helpful, and very accommodating of our baby, who used a high chair but ate his own dinner. They supplied a piece of bread for him at our request, without charge.

Generous drinks and a good chocolate sundae for pudding - heaven!

I was there with my wife. We had to wait for about 1 hour before getting served. The pub was not packed at all, so we thought that all this waiting time was because they were preparing a very good meal that deserved to be waited for. But, when the waiter finally brought us the meals we ordered, our disappointment was huge! The caesar salad was small, full of water (lettuce had not been drained properly), with just a couple of croutons and few pieces of chicked. The other meal was even worst, it was an Ale Steak pie. It was ridicously small, had almost no pastry, just pieces of meat. It was served with cold white rice (rice on an english steak pie meal???), and just around 15 pieces of peas (yes, just 15!!!) and only 2 small pieces of cauliflower. This meal looks like a starter, a really bad starter, rather than a main meal.
We complained about that but they didn't offer us nothing a part from a really expensive bill of 22 euros for eating almost nothing and of the worst quality, with 1 hour waiting time.
We really suggest everybody to avoid this restaurant, it's the worst you can find in Benidorm that otherwise is packed of reasonable priced restaurants with far better quality.

We visited twice on our stay in benidorm this year and both times had great food and service. There is also plenty veggie options which is a plus as im a vegetarian.

Visited here on the 10th July was a bit confused by menu with shared dishes and not clear. Had to asked to be explained. Had gammon steak and scampy in our company. Nice and fresh. Would almost certainly go back!
