Truly awful restaurant to go to. It is expensive and the service is about the worst we have ever experience, don't waste your money going here, try somewhere else.

Very nice location, if you eat outside on the terrace there is a lovely view on the ocean and on the mountain side. Reasonable prices. Food was very nice - we tried spaghetti with shrimps (delicious!) and espada fish.

Stopped for lunch as arranged by our tour guide. We had soup, Scabbard fish and an omelette, and ice cream and coffee. All very good and at a very reasonable price. Recommend.

Rubbish service. Waiting over an hour for food. They said 2 more minutes and 30 minutes later still waiting. When we arrived the restaurant was empty. Regret to have to send a stinging review.

We had lunch at this restaurant on the advice of our mini bus driver. The restaurant was very busy. Lunch was lovely. We had the scabbard with the local banana which was tasty. Good value for money as we had the set menu.

Not a wide varietz for vegetarians. The service was friendly and informed me ahead that the pasta on the menu would contain mushrooms from a tin. Elsewise they would serve only omelettes and mixed salad which I took and had tons of carrots. Food was...More
