“Consistantly delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

After this place was recommend to us by a British member of staff from our hotel about five or six years ago we visit it a couple of times each holiday. Every year we go we have the chicken kievs, the steak on the stone, the fillet steak and the espatada and every year they are consistently the same and consistently delicious. This is not a place of fine dining and fancy surroundings, but it is a place for a friendly welcome, great food and excellent value for money.
We love it!

“Great food at a reasonable price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended to us. To be honest, if that hadn't been the case we might not have crossed the threshold as the restaurant is quite unprepossessing. Anyway, I'm SO glad we did. The staff were charming, the food excellent and the cost very easy on the pocket. We're definitely making a return visit before we return home.
