I'm not a huge fan of fish but luckily the restaurant next door is owned by the same person and you can order from both menus. The fish we ordered between us though wasn't amazing. Waiters seemed a bit overstretched on a busy Friday night...More

Food was quite good but paella dish was very expensive. Service was ok. Gibraltar is very small so not difficult to reach this place from Rock Hotel. This is not by the seaside though

The seafood tagine is a riot of flavours. Prices are very reasonable, atmosphere casual, and service friendly. I will definitely come back!

As soon as we sat down it was obvious that the staff were on a go-slow for some reason as the place wasn't busy. Took ages to get our drinks and then take our food order. We've eaten well here before but this time it...More
