We organised a large welcome dinner (60+ people) at La Musa the day before our wedding and it was amazing from all possible points of view. Interacting with the restaurant before was very easy and they proposed a great menu at 15 EUR that took us and our guests through a range of great simple Spanish dishes, including jamon, fresh...

A very modern take on tapas, beautifully done. The highlight was probably the langoustine filled filo 'cheese straw', but all of the dishes in degustation menu were excellent. Pleasant service and a good wine list. Great find.

Hugely grateful to the staff of this restaurant for providing us with an extra-special meal last night on New Year's Eve. Booking was a last-minute idea, but we enjoyed our night out there immensely. Included in the set price of 60 euros were a welcome cocktail and nibbles, a six-course meal, with all the wine we could drink and all... More

We visited for lunch from nearby Arenales del Sol. Food was great, service could have been better but the food made up for it. Best Mexican burger I've ever had and the Lasagne was very good indeed. Bit of a dressy up restaurant in comparison to what we were used to visiting on that trip so do bear that in... More

A bit noisy if full, but acceptable for a place with this popularity. Nice restaurant both for special ocasions and day to day. Short menu with good quality and creative touch in each dish.
