We went to this restaurant after the great reviews on here. There was very limited choice on the menu, we decided to go for Iberian ham as we did not know what it was and thought as we were on holiday we would try something different (our mistake) as the waiter took our order he said something in Spanish which I did not understand so I asked if our order was correct or if we had ordered incorrectly but he shook his head and said something else we did not understand. As he walked over to the chef he said something to the man behind the counter and he looked at us as did the chef and laughed, It made us feel very uncomfortable. When our meal arrived it dawned on me why they would think what we had ordered was funny, ham and chips! At this time we were the only diners and as more people came in and I saw what they had ordered I realised what we should have ordered and I am sure we would have enjoyed the meal much more. I think the waiter should have tried to advise us of what to order rather than laugh with he colleagues. Dessert for me was better as I had the homemade crème brulee but my husband chose a chocolate covered ice-cream with caramel inside which turned out to be shop bought which is ok but it was just put on a plate in it's wrapper and plonked down in from of him, no presentation at all. All in all I was really disappointed with this restaurant.

After going to the relicario for as long as I can remember. It closed.. To say that it was the end of a era.. Well just been back to LLoret for christmas and Its Reopened. It made my christmas even
better than it was. Opened by some of the staff who have been there since I think day one. So if thinking that you will be in the area this year. Then get back and give the lads your support. From one happy lady. Merry Christmas to all

Ive been coming here for 40 years now and I have to say that Spain has changed a lot over that time but thankfully this place hasn't.
If you want traditional spanish spit roast chicken then this is the place to come.

Cooked in front of you over a wood burning rotisserie, it doesnt get any more authentic as this.

I've visited this restaurant probably 200 times over my lifetime. Not bad considering I live 1200 miles away.

Long may it continue.

Keep up the great work guys
