Weve been coming to the ivy for the last ten years, June is such a lovely person and always gives such a warm welcome, the food is second to none, always the highest quality and the choice is wonderful, we will hopefully be coming back for another ten years!

“Improvements at the Ivy?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

British owned restaurant with convivial hosts situated at the harbour end of Los Christianos, one street back from the promenade. Outdoor and indoor seating. Outdoor seating ruined by unruly local children playing football - one of which hit one of the diners. Disappointing wine list. Good food menu containing some British favourites. We had a steak which was reasonable quality and a salmon fillet which was a small portion by comparison to those offered by other restaurants we have visited; salad offering was unimaginative given the wide range of local produce available. We tried a meringue based desert which was disappointing and overpriced; the meringue was very 'hard' and 'tough' to eat. Service was good overall although waitressing skills need a bit of finessing. One of the persons serving food had a habit of talking to diners from 2-3 feet away ie on the approach or when leaving diners tables. This made it a bit difficult for diners to hear what the person had said or was saying and seemed to create some amusement and confusion amongst a number of those diners! However, having said ... we enjoyed the food and the price was reasonable.

“Such a let down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

After reading great reviews I was very disappointed with the lack of interest shown in even getting us a table. We were left standing on the street and were told a table would be ready in 2 mins as a couple had just paid. We were then told 10mins later that the couple were just getting themselves together and were leaving. Some more time past and the table was still not being vacated. As a group of 16 turned up to their pre set tables we were then totally forgotten about. No apology, no effort made to get us seated, no regard for us being left standing. We walked away in disgust. Clearly the expected large group were who the staff were more interested in and not 3 folk who had stood for about 20-25 mins like a bunch of lemons.
Awful service, menu looked poor and would not recommend this restaurant. We went to Chill Out where the food was fab as was the service.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

The Ivy is a fantastic restaurant to go while on holidays in los christianos . We found the food to be really too quality and full of flavour,the host and hostess Dave and June make everyone welcome with a little banter and look after your every need. I would recommend this restaurant for all ages and families. Great food and great people
