Ate here twice with wife during 5 day break and were not disappointed. Very nice menu with numerous seafood and meat dishes. Lengthy wine list too. Linen tablecloths in use for each new customer. It is a favourite of the locals. Is is not the cheapest you will find but you pay for quality. Treat yourselves here.

We ate here 3 times on our last holiday and each visit didn't disappoint. The fish is so fresh and seasoned really well. The portions are generous, especially the gin and vodka!! I would recommend the monkfish with Iberian ham, incredible! The desserts are great too, if you have room. The staff are really friendly and attentive but not obtrusive,... More

We have eaten here before. On this visit I tried the Sirloin Steak (M/R) it was cooked to perfection and probably the best sirloin steak I have ever had. My wife had lamb chops which she described as lovely. Not a cheap restaurant but it is well worth paying the bit extra.

We recently visited this large,bright restaurant on three occasions. The restaurant is set on a busy corner site and offers both indoor and terrace options. Being on a corner,there is always the risk of a breeze, so those sitting down earlier in the night may want to consider the temperature later on - refreshing of course,on particularly warm nights.

Had paella to split between two here today, staff seem passionate about what the serve and I found many locals ate here. Busiest off the bunch speaks volumes

This restaurant looked nice so we went in for midday lunch. The service wasn't brilliant, refused to speak English so we spoke in Spanish. The food was nice bit pricey and one price for the lobster was very misleading. It stayed 9.50 euros for 100g, so we ordered and the waiter says you must order 400g at 40 euros, after... More

For nearly 25 years I have been a customer here. But in the last three visits I have had diabolic service, being totally ignored as one of the only two tables occupied. On the last and final visit..with a table of eight on a quiet time, Sunday 0830. We were ignored by all staff. My main course didn't arrive until... More
