We enjoyed the first visit so returned for a second a few days later. On both occasions the food was reasonably priced and the service friendly and efficient.

The outside seating area has been added since last year and you no longer have to access the restaurant from the supermarket car park which is a bonus.

On the first visit we had the almost mandatory steak on a stone which earns such rave reviews. We have previously has this elsewhere in a downstairs restaurant where the smoke from the steak was almost unbearable. Fortunately the outside seating removed this problem and the steaks were excellent quality.

The second visit we had espetadas and again the meat was very good. Tony and the team run an excellent restaurant so we will be returning on future visits to the island.

Lovely food but don't order a starter. We were very impressed with the selection and quality of food- complimentary starters and huge portions.

The went to this restaurant based on previous reviews. It was the first time I had tried the steak on the stone. The fillet of beef was so tender and of a large potion. It is about three times bigger than you get back in the UK. Once I had finished my meal I knew I will be coming back to eat here again. We ate here twice and will be defiantly returning again. It was excellent value.
