“The stars were bright Fernando!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Well as every other reviewer has said - WE LOVE YOU FERNANDO!!!! He makes this restaurant. We had our 4 year old and our 6 month old with us. Fernando was the hilight of the holiday for our 4 year old who just loved him. He is so entertaining and friendly every night - even when it is super busy in the restaurant he keeps everyone entertained.

Down to the food - amazing. Definitely the best food in the resort. We had the steak one night and paella the next night we were there.

It is really lovely inside as well - the first night we were there it started to rain so Fernando pulled over the sun shades but did say it would not stop the rain coming through so if we wanted to move inside we could. It is quaint inside. It also has baby changin faciliteis in the bathrooms which was amazing. I couldn't believe it.

I really want to go back to Arenal d'en Castell and I have to say a lot of it is thanks to Fernando! It is a beautiful resort but he is so memorable that it has made the place stick in our memories!

“Friendly welcome and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

The title says it all really.

The paella was lovely - and no shells / bones etc...even better!

Customers made to feel welcome and a few resort hints and tips thrown in too.

I'd eat there again should I venture back to the resort.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Went to this restaurant whilst staying in a local hotel, food was very good and cheap. Staff were lovely an one was from England which was a bonus although the other waiter spoke very good English. Was very quiet when we went but was still nice as they had British music on. Seating available in and out. Highly recommend. Thank you
