“One of the better restaurants in Playa Blanca”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We went to this restaurant having read the favourable reviews on TA and surprisingly this time we weren’t disappointed. We eat here on three evenings during a two week stay, and on each occasion we had a really nice dining experience – good service, good food and excellent hospitality from the staff. The menu is not to extensive particularly the choice of starters, but each one we had was of good quality. We had the flambé filet steak twice with different sauces, which was really nice and cooked as we had requested. On the last night we ate there we had the baby leg of lamb for two, which we were both a little disappointed with.

We found other comparable restaurants during our stay, but we liked this one the best. It also has a cracking sea view so pop in during the day and book a window table.

Would certainly visit again.

“Great location, romantic, fab food and very friendly staff”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Great setting on the first floor overlooking the harbour (please don’t be put off by the casual café below it) but you will need to reserve to book a window seat. Very romantic inside and lovely ambience. Lovely food served by very friendly waiters. We both shared the lamb which was amazing.

One of my favourites in Playa Blanca which has some really great restaurants if you do your research and are prepared to find them. Highly recommended and can’t wait to return.

“Simply excellent”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Professional and friendly service. The place to go if you like fine food and good quality. Between us we sampled the fillet steak- cooked to perfection, the lamb shoulder- the meat fell off the bone and the chateaubriand- my favourite meal and it was absolutely delicious. I have tried so many restaurants in Playa Blanca and this has to be the best.
