Mainly I'd say over priced and over rated. It is selling itself as a restaurant for people seriously interested in food. All you can say is that it is miles and miles better than the other restaurant at Hotel Chiqui and this is not praise!...More

Tried all three restaurants. All of them offer a variety of local and international food. You must try the local wines

As we couldn't be bothered to get the bus further round the beach we eat in the hotel restaurant. Dinner was very nice, well prepared and served. Breakfast was overpriced, walk 5 minutes to the first beach side resurant and it's half the price.

Nice place, white decoration and slow but friendly service - problematic if you don't speak Spanish, but with good variety of local food and nice fish options. The prices are reasonable but the cava needs to be upgraded
