“I will not go back :-(”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

There is nothing wrong with the food in this restaurant, nor was it out of this world, but what put us off was that the owner of the restaurant has a very odd way of handling his customers. Whenever we did not do exactly what was expected of us (booked a table for 4 and came with 5, could not decide quick enough on what to eat, did not understand him fast enough etc....) he would pull a face of irritation, sighing at the same time. The Thai girl who served us was friendly and efficient but he was totally stressed out and running to and from the kitchen (and past our table) like a headless chicken. This was not the first time we were there but it will certainly be the last. ;-(

“Great lunch”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Food was superb. Service first class. Value excellent. Good choice for every course of set lunch. No rush to clear customers out when finished eating. What more is there to say? - except the usual gripe of IVA not being included in the menu price.

“Nice and easy”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Had a delicious three course meal, pleasant serving, good value for money. Nice sitting outside in a warm evening. Not the most romantic surroundings outside but we will come back inside or outside

“Great value, nice food & very good value.”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

What a fantastic little restaurant, been here for years owned by a German & a true master of offering great food & great value. You will not be dissapointed, situated at the end of San Pedo High Street, near the new roundabout towards the sea. Simply fantastic food, the chicken pie must be tasted it's epic & the rosti potatoes are a must, the basic 3 course menu is 22€ & that's value on a plate. The owner is always there, he knows how to get repeat business, great food at low prices - Go There it's great.

“What enjoyable evening”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

We ate in this restaurant last Wednesday night with some friends. There were 6 of us and there were no complaints. We had a table outside which I would imagine was probably one of the best. The food was lovely. The Sea Bass was to die for and there was a very generous helping. Everyone had something different and there were no complaints. It was very busy but in spite of that nobody was rushed and how they served everyone so efficiently is a mystery. I would definitely eat here again and would recommend it and it was reasonably priced.
