“An hour wait for breakfast - terrible service!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We are locals and like to patronise local businesses wherever possible but we found our experience at Angels was so bad that we won't be returning. We were a party of 4 for breakfast and ended up waiting an hour for it. We only ordered a croissant, scrambled eggs on toast and two fry-ups. Honestly, we all said it would have been quicker to buy the ingredients from Johnson's and cook it ourselves. The 'waitress' was clueless and offered excuses and no apology when we queried the long delay and told her we weren't able to wait any longer. We had finished our drinks 40 minutes before the food finally arrived. The food was ok. The croissant was soggy but the fry ups were fine. If you can't cope with the number of covers please don't allocate that much seating outside your establishment. And if you know there is going to be a delay due to a rush of orders then please make that clear to your guests. We would have chosen not to stay and wait for the food but we would have appreciated the information and come back at a different time. As it is we won't be coming back and we will be advising others to stay away as well. Amateurs!

“They could do better”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have used Angels on a number of occasions but find the attitude of the owners a little strange; they appear to be amateurs in the catering trade and certainly do not put the needs of customers first. They won't reserve tables or let you know when tables become free. Their meals are quite expensive given they are no more than a bar with a few tables set out on a concourse of a commercial centre which is somewhat off the beaten track and not prone to passing traffic - they need to rely on the residents of La Finca Golf Urbanisation but their attitude does not make you feel special and wanting to return. They need in our view to up their game and become more customer focused.

“home from home!!!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

What can I say other than this cafe/bar is for those who like british food, drink,football and company. Most definitely not for anyone seeking the spanish experience or requiring a little more refinement .

“Great little place”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Ate here several times during our recent holiday, both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is particularly good value for money and very nice food. The evening menu is varied and while some items seem good value, eg the steaks, the pizzas seemed expensive to me (but they were good). Also do a take away service which we used once. Recommended.

“Good English food in Spain”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Particularly the breakfast.Situated on the first floor of the commercial centre at La Finca Golf .Algorfa, Angels offers very good value for money with views towards the castle and sea (if you squint) A varied evening menu which we think offers something for everyone.
They tend to close after the breakfast rush, so no lunch, whether that will be the case through summer I don't know. All in all a very friendly good value place to eat in or out with wifi.
