Visited this restaurant several times on our recent visit to Canico. Food was fine with a reasonable selection on the menu. Staff attentive . maybe a little lacking in atmosphere but this was probably because when we went there were not many other diners. Fish was very good. limited choice of desert.

Went for an evening meal here without booking (Thursday night beginning of March). Not sure what expect as we were put off by the faded pictures of food outside, but once inside found friendly welcome from waiter who spoke good English, and very good food. We ordered one of the house specialities - spaghetti with sea food - and chose... More

After one testmeal, decided to choose this place as our standard dinner location for 2 weeks. The fish dishes were fantastic. Meat not so tender. Good wine list, Multilanguage waiters, very friendly !

Tasty well cooked meal at a reasonable price in an attractive restaurant. The only drawback was chips, salad and other side dishes were extra unlike the nearby Central Restaurant. Very friendly staff. There is also an outdoor seating area overlooking the town square, though it is on quite a busy road.

A great restaurant in a nice location and very friendly staff. The food is good and plenty of it, a place the locals frequent also. You can either eat and drink inside or on the terrace and watch the world go by.
