“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We ate here as a party of 7. We did not order starters but were given fresh bread and a selection of 'tapas type' dishes, all our mains were very well cooked with excellent presentation and well cooked side dishes the chips were divine, Four of us had deserts, we had four bottles of wine about 6 lagers and the bill came to £20 a head which included a reasonable well deserved tip. As has previously been stated the hotel/rep will book restaurant for you, the restaurant provides a taxi there and back, although one half of our party were asked by the taxi driver on the return trip who was going to pay, he was told the restaurant and said no more, we think he was hoping to get paid twice

“Ok food.... BAD service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

After a few positives about this restaurant we decided to try it, especially as they pay for your taxi there and back.
The inititial look was ok, it had neon lights but i expected this from previous reviews.
We got to the restaurant at 7:30pm, after 15 mins they brought us bread and olives, butter, salsa etc. We then had to ask for the drink and food menu!!! by 8pm they still hadn't taken our drinks order. We eventually got asked at about 8:10pm.
I asked for a Bella marina salad, with salmon, prawns and caviar. I asked for the caviar separate as i never had it before and didn't want it to spoil my starter, Greg asked for mussels.
These came about 20 mins later. The mussels were beautiful. My salad was also nice however the caviar was on the salad not separate, its a good job i liked it!! The main courses then didn't get to us until 9:20pm, long wait. Again the food was good but the wait was ridiculous. They also kept bringing drinks to our table that weren't ours.
After the meal i got up to the ladies and i felt so uncomfortable, all the waiters kept looking up and down at me, Greg said they were turning round looking at my behind. Unacceptable for a restaurant!!!!!!
The price of the meal was good 100 dinars/£40 for 2 starters, 2 mains, bottle of wine, bottle of water, diet coke.
We eventually left the restaurant at 11:00pm after asking for the bill 3 TIMES!!
Would we return NO

Food would have got a 4*
Service 0*

“Great steak.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Lovely restaurant. Provided free transport from and to our hotel. Ordered the fillet steak and chips which was beautiful. Hubby ordered a Tbone though and it came without fillet so he was very disappointed. But what he did get was still gorgeous.

“Excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

The food here is really very good! We ordered steak with peppercorn sauce and a grilled butterfly chicken. Both came with complimentary bread and some lovely dips and both meals come with chips, roast veg and the gratin-like potatoes.

The food was lovely and I would definitely go back there for a second go. The only downside was they forgot the peppercorn sauce so we had to wait for them to bring it out before we could tuck in, but for the price we paid, excellent place.

We ordered Steak/Peppercorn sauce, butterfly chicken, both with chips and veg etc, 2 cocktails and 2 lagers came to 69 dinar (about £28). Highly recomnended

“Excellent value, highly recommend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

Ate here last night, the hotel arranged our booking and the restaurant provided a free taxi to collect and return us to our hotel, fresh fish lobster were still alive, the tuna brik for starter was divine, main courses of spag carbonara and t bone steak were delicious, portions were massive but certainly didnt lack in taste, excellent value with two courses for two people with a bottle of wine costing around 36 english pound, would def go back!!!!
