The food was excellent and very good value for money. We hadn't booked and so had a table near the door which meant we couldn't appreciate the decor, views or atmosphere (hence the lower score). Wish we had gone earlier in our holiday as we'd have loved to have visited again. Everyone who left while we were there booked again.

Overall;
This was clearly the best restaurant we visited during our eleven day stay in the Marina area of Playa Blanca.
We visited several restaurants in the Marina area and along the coast, but found the food in Romantica both fantastic quality and valve vs other more up market places.
Food presentation was up with some of the best places I have eaten at within some top UK venues, and would highly commend the chef and his team.
As we visited with my parents, we decided to book the day before asking for a window table. This was exactly what we got and watched the fireworks from the other nearby restaurants.
Service was excellent, with good provision for all of our needs, including my good old mother who is a veggie!
My parents have visited the island 21 times and rate it now as one of their top eating nights out!
Thanks, we will return very soon!

Great food and great service with a real maitre-de. Desserts were wonderful -try the cheesecake it's so light The food is prepared fresh so expect to wait. A few euros more but way above the average. People were rebooking as they left the restaurant.

Had an amazing meal in this restaurant and service was excellent. Amazing view of the sea and very romantic atmosphere. This was a special occasion for just myself and my husband but we noticed families were also well catered for. Definately worth a visit.

We heard good things about this place here on trip advisor so took a wander along from our hotel. We hadn't booked but there were at least 6 empty tables we could see. We asked for a table for two, the disinterested waitress told us to wait, so we waited.
10 minutes or so passed when a group of 4 came in and hovered around un-easily at the end of the bar. After around 3 or 4 minutes the waiter came up and asked if they had booked. They had so were seated up the back somewhere.
In the meantime another young couple (like ourselves) came in and hovered around in front of us. They too were seated after around 3 or 4 minutes.
By this time we had lost the will to live, there was no atmosphere, it was too hot, we were sick of being ignored so left and went elsewhere.
On the walk home we passed it again and there were still half a dozen empty tables.
Im sure the food is great but service was very second rate indeed.
