“Very impressive menu”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant in early November and despite the time of year the place was full with tourists and locals. It's located in Santa Eulalia which is about 5 mins walk off the strip.
The menu has a wide range to suit all tastes ranging from excellent curries, tagines, steaks and kebabs and a fantastic range of fish. Children are also well catered for.
The restaurant also gives a great value fish or grill platters which us basically all you can eat off a range of dishes for €16.95.
Only criticism of the restaurant are the tables are closely packed together and leads to a lack of privacy when eating when it's full but to be honest the atmosphere was good and didn't bother us.
The staff are really friendly and overall this restaurant is well worth the visit.

“Felt ripped off”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Really pleased with the good - had veggie tagine but felt we got ripped off with the starter. Ordered two bread/butter/olives/spreads and we were charged €8 for the pleasure. Wouldn't mind but we sent back half the stuff un-eaten. Pity really as otherwise I would rate this excellent.

“Not the best experience.....”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Just back from holiday and we were pushed into eating here. We were asked every time we walked up the street to eat there. On the fourth time even walking on the opposite side wasn't enough to get away so we just gave in. We sat down and the tables were quite small and close together. We were not asked for our orders for at least 15-20 minutes and we then waited a further 40 minutes for a pile of overcooked meat or the mixed grill as the menu said. The pile was huge and the waiter came out a further 2 times with more meat. We couldn't eat alot of it as it tasted like meat that had been frozen which would be common for a restaurant that offered so much on its menu. Also for the BEER drinker they use cans of beer and then add foam with the tap,,, this could be seen through the curtain. I would not recommend this place and I wouldnt go back.

“Halal”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Only halal place to eat in Albufiera!! Very decent food. They had a far better traditional Moroccan dish tagine then in Morocco. Decent price too. The owners are very welcoming too. Signed up just to right this review.
