“Enjoyed”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Went there twice in November. Service friendly and nice atmosphere.
Given a very small portion of bread and garlic dip between 3 both times. Felt cheated as it was very moreish.
Pasta was delicious and fresh but could have been a bit more in the portion and pork fillet stuffed with brie looked lovely. Will be back as good service, food and price.

“Classy restaurant.”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Very nice restaurant with good service and fantastic food. We were very impressed with this place and so were apparently many other guests as it was practically full even though we were there on a regular Monday night.

The music they played in the background was very interesting and when we inquired the owner came and showed us the CD which we definitely want to get our hands on!

Our nice meal ended with an after dinner drink, complimentary of the house!

Would dine here again anytime, don´t miss it!

“Really good”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

Place was packed on arrival on a Saturday night but true to their word a table was found in 10 minutes. Good range on menu and the paella was wonderful and served with some ceremony. Service very efficient and food quality very good indeed. Definitely recommend.

“Good food without a big price tag”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Lovely decor with a nice orange theme (and stands out as some of the places in Yumbo can seem a little tatty) and the music - a mellow covers CD - sets the mood. The food is really nice too. It isn't the best Italian ever but certainly a decent one and a bit of a bargain really. We paid less than 15 euro each with starters, mains, drinks and bread!

“One of the better restaurants in the Yumbo”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Been coming to Playa del Anglais for years, this place is always a place I try again and again. Marvellous steaks and good atmosphere within the Yumbo. Service is good. Food excellent again tonight! The Yumbo has suffered with the recession but this place struggles along, thankfully. We shall return!
