“Great for steaks, friendly and helpful staff, lovely views”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

My husband had the fillet steak with peppered sauce and I had the fillet strips and both were excellent, lots of other interesting dishes on the menu, we will go back to sample them! We were recommended a lovely bottle of red wine by the waiter. Lovely views if you get a window table. Friendly and helpful staff. Not the cheapest place around, but the food is worth it.

“Unfriendly service, awful atmosphere, overly expensive for what you get!!!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We arrived without a booking and they seemed rather peeved we were there (we had our kids with us 10 & 15). As we have had such wonderful welcomes in other restaurants we were quite surprised by their cold service. The menu was lacking inspiration and any Mediterranean radiance.. We ordered but felt hurried and children were very unwelcome.. Ordered fried halloumi and it was shockingly salty. Yuck!!! Rest of the starters was fine. We ordered our mains, and my hubby had a lengthy discussion on what to have with the waiter. When it arrived it was the wrong order completely but the waiter argued and insisted it was right!!! He finally admitted it was wrong and could get the right order in 15 mins. Unfortunately hubs didn't feel hungry by that point :-(
Anyway, as a conclusion, the restaurant certainly didn't live up to any of these reviews. Unfriendly, decor straight out of the 70's, poor quality, expensive, passionless food, no atmosphere what so ever and more popular with retired community. Go to the Italian next door, it's fantastic!!!!!

“Excellent service, views and food at Sebastyans”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

THe location for the restaurant is just brilliant with superb views over to Fuerteventura. Book a table by the window and soak in the atmosphere! The service is really excellent, almost old-fashioned in its attention to detail. You feel really pampered throughout the meal. Go for a recommendation on the wine because the maitre d' is a wine expert and has his own cellar (and will sell you a bottle or two if you want!). We go for the mixed dips dish (5 plate?) which is very tasty with warm pitta bread, and then sometines try the specials - lamb chops, venison steak (superb) or ostrich. All of it is great. The Santorina dishes (lamb, chicken) are also recommended as mains. A romantic setting.

“Not really what we expected”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We visited this restaurant in the hope of eating some gyros and lovely Greek food. Unfortunately after we ordered we were rather brusquely told there was no gyros.

The food was lovely but I can only describe it as nouveau cuisine
Greek style. Not really the hearty, tasty Greek food you would get in a local taverna in Greece.

We took our daughter (4) for lunch but its not really child friendly. Just shy of child tolerant. (Daugther moved her cutlery - quietly and as children do and it was immediately put back in the proper place, which was a little bizarre and futile).

The food was nice but expensive and not really what we were after (this may be our fault). Lovely views so probably nice for a romantic meal.

“Great Restaurant”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

From the moment you enter you are treated as "one special person" The waiters/waitresses pamper you and are always willing to offer advice on the food. Big selecion of dishes to suit all. Always feel relaxed, food great and not overly expensive.
