“Lovely meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

9Pm on a Thursday night- pretty quiet. Great food... service good. Prices WONDERFUL! Our bottle of wine was 4 euro less here than the restaurant/bar we had just left.
For starters grilled artichoke slices - simply yummy. My hubby had the green bean starter and I have to say we all tried bites-- very good- homestyle. Swordfish was excellent. Two others had the pork loin and enjoyed thoroughly. All in a all a great visit after not having been here for 4-5 years. Almost did not go as there has been talk of inconsistency-- if that is true we visited at the RIGHT time :-)

“For that special occasion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

First time here but recommended by friends and was not disappointed. Good friendly service in a lovely atmosphere and everyone agreed food excellent. Prices were higher than average but we all had a great evening. Several Spanish people eating there and I think that's always a good sign.

“Avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

The service was bordering on rude and the food was poor. There was a large table behind my stepmother and a waitress pushed past her quite rudely to get to them. The staff pretty much ignored us and when they came to the table were quite arrogant. I chose veal as I usually like this in Spain and mine was quite nice but everyone else had fish and really didn't enjoy it. This, together with the service [or lack of] makes this a place that I would not only avoid, I'd advise others to do so too.

“Great staff nice meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Three of us were fitted in to a busy Restrauant without booking . We were greeted with broad smiles and prompt service. The wine was excellent as was the food. Prices maybe a little higher than average but it was a pleasant experience so we did not mind so much.

“Bitterly disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Have been to this town a few times in the last four years and had walked past this restaurant many times. Last September we booked a table and it was very busy with a great atmosphere and from memory the food was good. This year we went again, albeit a couple of weeks later in the last week of September.
I think there was only one other table full. There was no atmosphere at all. The staff were dull and disinterested. The food was really poor. It was end of season so maybe that had an impact but unfortunately it was enough to ensure we won't return.
