Raining Saturday evening, but the covered dining is lovely too. Loved my pepper steak and Val had steak Diane. The service is perfect and the good is consistently excellent.

Thank you for your contribution, we will do the best to increase our consistency. San Pedro broke his promise, and instead of the sun He send us rain. We hope to see the spectacular sunsets very soon again.

The Service is always excellent, and Swiss Chef Heinz always serves up a surprise or two in specials. Great place for a relaxing dinner, drinks and dance. Nice easy walk from town centre along the Mallicon. A must on your bucket list while in PV.
