“Massive portions”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Huge plates. I ordered the black suckling pig and I couldnt finish it. It was slightly overcooked though. Children dishes were overall tasteless. The sangria was pretty strong, and at the end of the meal, we were tipsy. Best to order a few starters each or share main courses.

“Mucho Gusto”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Fantastic service from Angel and his team of waiters, fabulous food from a simple gazpatcho to chateubriand, carved and flamed at your table (for 15E!). It looks a bit seasidy but honestly its west end quality and rock bottom prices, we would go back to Playa Blanca just to visit here for dinner!

“Great value, with a view”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were impressed, we had the Chateaubriand for two. Flambeed at the table, really nice cuts of steak, reasonably priced. The wine list was also reasonable, we enjoyed a bottle of Campo Viejo with the steaks. OK, there is not too much in the way of ambiance, it's fill those tables.
However we enjoyed a great view of the sea, with Fuerteventura in the distance and relaxed and did some people watching. In fact it was that good, we went back on another night and did it again, just as good. This isn't a relaxed or romantic dining experience to be fair, but the food was really very good, and the prices very good, and as we walked past the second time, planning to have a browse before picking a restaurant we spotted a front-line table under the stars and just took it. We've been here before and even seen people sat on the sea wall waiting for a table. We're a bit puzzled by the poor reviews, but maybe things can vary night by night. I wouldn't say we're easily pleased, but we know what we like. Now the Brisa Del Mar just a few yards down the beachfront walk was a totally different proposition, I've reviewed that separately, and we didn't contemplate going back there a second time. Service we realise can have quite an impact on how you enjoy your dining experience, here it was functional and friendly, and a bit rushed. But as they were busy we felt that was understandable. The complementary rum/honey drink after is a nice touch, OK you know you've paid for it anyway, but it still feels nice.

“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Dropped in for lunch, we were after a bit of tapas and it did not disappoint, had 6 different dishes plus drinks and bill was just 30 euros, bargain. Food was excellent & fresh & service was quick & considerate, much better than most of the fare offered on the front at playa blanca. Blink & you will miss the place though! It is situated towards the far end of the main bay furthest away from the ferry port, would definitely recommend.

“They'll need to be better than this!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We were very disappointed!! We were the only people in eating and now we can tell why...

There were hairs on the table, in potatoes and on one glass

The food, with the exception of the tomatoe garlic bread, was oily and pretty tasteless

The good news is the man serving us was nice and it was very cheap!

We will definitely not be returning!!
