The two staff who were working when we visited (twice), a man and a lady, presumably husband and wife were lovely! Very friendly and welcoming. There is a large range of food to choose from and from what we sampled, it was very nice. You can't complain for the price of things either, it was very cheap, but excellent value.

Along with most other reviews here, we had a very disappointing experience.
Lovely setting, food was ok/average, but the service was terrible. What a shame it was british owned!!
Waited over half an hour for the starters, when a table of 4 who arrived 15 mins after us were served first, with the excuse that the orders were mixed up.
The waitress (owner?), who was obviously a smoker, had a terrible racking chesty cough, which is not good when serving food!!
When served the mains by another lady, our obviously empty glasses/bottles should have prompted a request of more drinks?...... not a chance!!..... we had to ask as she was turning away for refills!!.....
overall, not recommended.

Walking through the door, we were full of expectation - the decor is lovely and the views down to the sea wonderful. However, that's where it ended. Our starters were fine, if the portions were on the skinny side but of 4 main courses, only one was good. My husband had the fillet steak which looked awful, seemed impossible to cut and tasted so bad he gave up and the cats had it. His chips - how can you go wrong? - looked like they were left overs and reheated. All in all, inedible and expensive. Two duck breasts were tough and disappointing as well. Whilst our waitress was nice enough, we had to chase for wine lists, extra drinks and the bill which was wrong. Such a shame, so much potential wasted. As family and friends live locally, this could have become a favourite but we won't go back.

We went with friends to this restaurant, we drinks which arrived, and then we ordered our meal I had greek salad it was limp and certainly not fresh I could not eat it. The main course took 50mins to arrive after our starter dishes were cleared. Meanwhile we tried to get somebody's attention to order another drink but to no avail. As for the main course I had scampi which arrived black and burnt, a friend had pasta which was very over cooked and had a very watery sauce.another dish served was pork which was so tough it was not edible. We never bothered with sweets, we saw another tables and they to looked equally disgusting. We tried for 15 mins to get the bill and were totally ignored, in favour of two other tables of the owners friends. Eventually I complained only to have the bill slammed down in front of me. Not the sort of relaxing evening planned all in all dreadful place only good point is the view, but several other restaurants in tala have the same view and excellent food .
