Ordered a mixed seafood grill ( for 2 persons) and seafood paella (for two persons). There were 5 of us. The seafood grill for 2, came first. All 5 of us were stuffed by this time. Great food, wonderful service.

We had many family and friends´lunches here. It is traditional food. Nothing spectacular, a bit over prized but all in all very good. Love the pool area (salt water pool). Paula, who organizes the place is great! A family-run business, Cannot go wrong.

We were there last week children were definitely welcome at both pool and restaurant. They are very busy now you may well need to book both pool and restaurant, though they do very good food at the poolside

Fui a cenar y no había nadie bañándose. Tiene toda la pinta de ser un beach club donde vas a pasar el día comas o no en el restaurante.
