Very tasty tapas with a few new flavours, well priced, superb view over the beach and bay, staff very attentive in an informal atmosphere. Was busy even in April but were able to be seated straight away with booking on a Saturday night

We followed the reviews and went to Friends on our first night and returned twice after (during our one week holiday). This place is excellent. A great choice of food, from Canarian and spanish to traditional grilled meats and even vegetarian choices. We tried a lot of the menu. The Tapas is excellent and so are the steaks. The staff...

We came here with 5 freinds and it was great! The staff were lovely and moved tables so we could sit outside! We shared the tapas and had one of everything on the menu! Very tasty, maybe a little Too much oil for my liking but that's the nature of the tapas, that said I highly recommend this place!

Missed breakfast in hotel on our first day, due to eyelids being glued together till 11.45am. Enjoyed our breakfast here in Friends. Great sausages, and lovely Dutch waiter :p. No metal bars being applied to heads. Will definitely return!

Whilst my partner and I were having a drink, a waiter wasn't looking where he was going and hit my head with a metal bar he was carrying. He didn't even notice until I told him what he had done. He did not apologise and even expected me to pay the five euros for our drinks!

Meal for 3 people. I had the fish of the day which was so soft and moist and perfectly cooked. Came with potatoes and salad. Just perfect. Wife had tapas for one, even though it says min 2 people. You get 4 instead of 6. And the children's menu was good too. Not plastic food. Real chicken and home cut... More

We booked here whilst on our family holiday and it was here we chose for a birthday night out. Have to say service was very good even though they were busy, we didnt feel like we waited too long for anything. The food was a very high standard, all the dishes were explained to use, as much the alternative to... More
