After spending 9 nights at a All in inclusive mediocre hotel, we popped in here with high hopes of a nice meal!! Got to say the quality of the food was amazing! From the T Bone steak to the paella (for one) to the tasty deserts and free shots. Lovely staff, wonderfully environment and an amazing night. 5 out 5... More

Me and my partner were a bit lost when we first arrived in Playa del Ingles and we sort of stumbled upon the restaurant as it was only 2 minutes from our hotel. It didn't appeal to us massively from the outside but as we didn't really know anywhere else we took a gamble and came in. Best decision in... More

We have been coming here for a number of years now. We always ask for the Menu of the day and we have never been disappointed. The staff are always helpful and the food excellent. 3 courses with wine between €12 and €15. Do yourself a favour and look it up.

Lovely fillet steak, salad and chips. Only downside is that we tried this restaurant on our last day! Well worth a visit! Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

Lovely Staff, Beautiful Food, Reasonable prices! Made our holiday so much nicer than the all inclusive we had paid for, honestly so glad we tried this place out as we hadn't eaten anything other than chips for the last 3 days before we went here. Massive portions just fab!
