I presume it has been taken over recently as the food is much more Mediterranean than the exterior of the restaurant suggests. We had a breakfast, a snack lunch and 2 evening meals. The food was good on each occasion, especially the evening meals. We can recommend... More

Just got back from a week stay in this resort, after looking at reviews for restaurants near us we decided to give chaplains a try. The place is very rustic and quaint just what we like when we are abroad. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We ordered steak and we were not disappointed, it... More

So, this may well be the last place within the EU that openly appreciates a smoker. Smoking in the bar is ok it seems, especially if you are an avid karaoke star. As an ex-smoker it was was a novelty gaining a nice l'eau de Embassy to my clothes for the rest of my holiday. Reminded me of a bygone... More

The cafe,bar, restaurant was below where we were staying. They made us feel very welcome and for that reason we visited at least once a day. The breakfast is certainly worth having to start you day off. What ever time we went in we were welcome like long lost family even at midnight on our way home!! The evening meals... More

We visited a few times on holiday and each time we went elsewhere we were disappointed so kept returning. Food was excellent and when it wasn't it was because we chose badly, not the fault of the food or presentation. Very friendly staff. Don't be put off by the outward appearance.

I have been here many times and would recommend it to everyone. The food is delicious and the service is just as good. The spicy chicken is very tasty.
