Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited El Kapan on a hot summer day, thirsty and hungry directly from the beach. We were greeted with a smile and a table was found although we had no reservation (for lunch you may be lucky to find a free table). We enjoyed...very much the laid back ambiente and the Cuban music that provided the musical background without being obtrusive. We had fish dishes that were very tasty and brought in quite a short time after ordering them. We also had some Bulgarian wine, which proved to be an extremely pleasant surprise (we tasted before mainly red wines, but now we tried some white ones). Recommend a visit!More

Nice view, nice personal. It is better to make a reservation before attending . The food wasn’t the best , to much spices and a bit pricey . But it was enough. Sangria is excellent!

We've went here for dinner. The seafood was excellent (tried the tuna and some paella style seafruits) with white sangria. Staff was nice and the place looks great (had sitting in the second floor). Definitely worth it.

Very tasty food, and beautiful view! The staff was friendly! The food was so delicious and the price is not that high. Sangria 1L wasn’t exactly 1L because the jar was full of ice, but it’s okay!

Managed to be seated late in the afternoon. A table next to the sand beach was ready for us; reserved after two hours by other guests. The waiter seems annoyed by our presence. The drinks were served quite soon. A request for a teaspoon was...honoured too late for its purpose. A skewer of pork neck with some vegetables named after the place didn't manage to enjoy. The grilled octopus with spicy potatoes was very well appreciated. The waiter is still indifferent. Going to another place for dessert.More
