The view is one of the best in Spain. The staff are attentive and lovely - so welcoming that they make our day. As residents here for many years, we've exhausted the à la carte menu and we turn up every Friday for the "menu del día". 11/11/16: tasteless soup (no alternative), followed by a minced meat pancake or fish...

Always a joy to visit any time of the year. This time we opted for meal of the day and we're not disappointed. The views are wonderful and it's always popular with all nationalities.

We visit a couple of times a year and it is one of our highlights. We don't eat the menu del dia here as the mussels are worth the two hour drive from Torrevieja ditto the wonderful avocado, smoked salmon salad. The service is always excellent, the food outstanding and the price reasonable. This restaurant also always has alcohol free... More

We have visited on many occasions and been happy, but now the menu del dia has been transformed and certainly not to the customers benefit. No choice on either the starter or postre courses and a massive choice of two on mains of which the breaded pork was very dry. This place will not survive on the back of the... More

Visited for an early light lunch, we came last year and enjoyed our meal, even though it did seem a little overpriced... Service was fine but the food was distinctly average. Neither of us were overly hungry so we kept it light; my wife opted for the burger and I went for the huevos revueltos with prawns and crispy jamon.... More

Hi Graeme and Vanda, Thanks for the review, as always customer feedback helps us improve what we do. No point in blethering on as we did chat while you were here, but just for the millions of TripAdvisor users let me clarify a few points. I fully agree with you on the burger, it was overcooked. I did not, however,... More

We have been going to this restaurant for some years but what has happened this year ? Still the same friendly service and spectacular views across the coast, but downhill from there. The menu of the day has been cut in options and increased in price. The bread arrived almost as we finished the soup. When it came to dessert... More

Hi RomeonJuliet, Thanks for the review, pertinent points indeed! We have cut the choices so we can give more love to the plates we offer. The feedback has been mostly good but we certainly got it wrong the day you were here ! The puddings on the day of your visit shall not return, promise. After several comments I tried... More

We booked a table overlooking the sea and our friends who were new to this area thought the view was fantastic. Unfortunately the menu del dia was not available but we had beautiful food from the a la carte menu. The dishes were all beautifully presented and unusually for this area, we were served vegetables. The pork fillet was gorgeous... More

Hi hollywoodblackpool, Thanks a bunch for such a positive review, much appreciated by the whole team here.

Phoned and booked table for Menu Del Dia. When given the menu we (four of us) were surprised at the very small choice. One starter, 2 main courses and 2 deserts. Price €13 (€12 in February, €12.50 in June and now €13 in September). Large party of about 12 people arrived next to us, all asked to see menu del... More

Been coming to the Isla Plana area for several years and this restaurant is my firm favourite. It is at the far eastern end of La Azohia with a view to die for. Great food and service. Best time to go is for Sunday lunch when you must book to be sure of a table. You will not be disappointed.

We stopped for a beer and a nibble. Read the menu and decided on the menu del Dia. We both had chick pea stew, excellent. Chicken curry, excellent. Ice cream and a couple of drinks. It came to 36 euros. Super value for money. Yes you can get it cheaper elsewhere but the standard here was first class. Well worth... More
