This place is just a diamond.... Why??? Because of simplicity, kindness, quality of products, people who works there... I never say it but you should absolutely go there. Cataplana is marvelous... Wine excellent

A cosy family run restaurant, good value tourist menu, can sit in or out, just on the edge of the strip. White wine a bit sharp , food good enough. Can recommend.👍

Excellent sardines and mackerel. Decent bottle of wine. And all for about €10 a head. Service might be a little slow, but it’s family run and well worth a visit.
