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.

I came here for lunch after checking Tripadvisor. I’m glad I did. The welcome was very warm and friendly. I chose 3 small starters (Artichoke with foie gras, squid croquette and scallop), monkfish for main course then mandarine and coconut tart. All the courses were...imaginative and not the usual lunchtime fayre. Will definitely come back.More

Very disappointed as was expecting spectacular following Michelin Guide award. Being foodies we tried Juan Mari for a steak and whilst the steak filet was tender it arrived with 2 tiny pieces of cauliflower and a bit of potato fried up with onion. No love...on the plate which was expected for price/quality of meal. Not one item of greenery, no sauce offered, and really poor. How sad as can do better at home.More

So we sampled the 6 small plate tasting menu . By the 4th I was already feeling full ! Thought the 6th would’ve been dessert but it was another plate of the most delicious food !! Then came along a fresh Mango sorbet and dessert....So the 6 plates became 7 . Well worth the €60 . Food and service was first class . Will be back !More

This is still my favourite restaurant. We took friends who hadn’t been before but they will be back! The pork and apple rice was outstanding. The service is faultless. What a great team. Can’t wait to return. You will not be disappointed if you go...to this restaurant, but remember to book. It gets very busy.More

We just love Juan Mari. The star features are.... Juan and Mari and their family. What a team they make. We have been several times during this visit both for the tasting menu and the normal menu. We took family for the tasting menu and...Juan coped brilliantly for vegetarians, gluten free diets, nut allergies, prawn allergies. He just made a menu that suited everyone so that everyone felt catered for. The food was delicious and service impeccable - every time. The steak from the normal menu is so tender and always perfectly cooked. The paellas are outstanding. We will be back (hopefully on Friday night if you are open!) again and again. Everyone we have taken has said the same - brilliant - must visit.More

We reserved for Saturday evening, and the restaurant was full. That speaks volumes in late November. Exceptional attention to detail with the presentation, and the food served is of a very high quality. Service was also excellent too, and they have a very decent wine...list. We will return soon.More

This has to be one of the best restaurants we have visited in San Pedro. Fully booked when we visited at the end of November, which speaks volumes. The attention to detail, and presentation is fantastic, as is the quality of the food served. Very...good service and a very good and reasonable wine list. We will be back soon.More

A treat from the beginning till the end. Friendly reception, nice interieur. As we were 8, we've requested a round table and this was perfect. Each dish was full of flavor, very nice presentation. A menu with lots of variation. Price /quality very correct offer,...knowing drinks are included. After, the chef comes to each table for a small conversation. Lot's of respect for re-inventing a new menu each time!More

We are so sorry to write this review but our experience was very poor. We ordered the 6 course menu. The first two courses were OK but no better than OK. Our 3rd course was cold and we had to send it back. They did...not give us a new and proper course instead the heated it up by We expect cutting it up and putting it an a pan. The 4th course was a goat cheese and that was nice. The 5th was a fish course, bacalouw and it was overcooked and very salty. We mentioned this both, reaction was that is how it should be. We then received sollomillo witch was cold and definitely not good. We also mentioned this to the head chef. He just nodded and walked off. We proceeded to ask for the bill and paid full price. No apologies no coffees. This was an exceptionally poor experience we never had in Spain. Again we are sorry but there is no other way to put this.More

We were asked for drinks as soon as we sat down and very quickly received wine and beer. After this we were completely ignored for 30 minutes. The waitresses seem to be trained in avoiding eye contact because they are preoccupied with clearing food and...plates away rather than checking that guests are being looked after. This is a massive shame because the food is very nice. The Spanish couple behind us who arrived 5-10 minutes later than us had their order taken first and I had to shout to the waitress to ask if we could order (something I would never usually do, but after 30 minutes of being ignored...) Being busy is completely forgivable, but being busy because of menial tasks and ignoring customers is not. I would love to be able to say that we would be back because of the food, but there is a lot to be said about good service and making customers feel welcome. The service alone has meant that we will not be back and will not be recommending people to the restaurant. We are locals so this is a very big disappointment as we hoped it would be somewhere we would return.More
