Visited here as I remember it from last time and glad we went back. Started with garlic prawns and grilled peppers to share. I had fillet steak with pepper sauce and my wife had stroganoff all cooked in front of us by the chef and it was delicious, accompanied with a lovely Rioja. Reasonable price with good service and a... More

Went with friends on their recommendation and had fillet steak with pepper sauce accompanied by real chips. The meal was delicious though they don't seem to go a bundle on vegetables. Staff were friendly and all in all a great value meal. my fillet was a perfect medium rare and very tender. We've been coming to Playa Blanca for years... More

Lovely location but that is where the compliment stops i am afraid. We popped in for dinner and a drink and were met with surly service. We decided not to order food after drink was served in a lacklustre and disinterested manner.

My husband and I went twice on our recent holiday to Playa Blanca. The flambeed fillet steak Diane was one of the best I have ever had. The chef cooked it fresh to order and it was melt in your mouth!! Service was good - not the quickest but I don't like being rushed and was happy waiting for it... More

Top quality fare - the flambé fillet steaks are cooked in the main restaurant and the sauces are freshly made from scratch, A real find especially at under €13 If it's speedy service that you are looking for - then this is not for you as dishes are prepared to order. I cannot understand how with this quality this restaurant... More

We have been visiting Cervantes for many years and never have we had a bad meal. Although the restaurant was busy the service was great and attentive. We chose the fish paella for the 3 of us. Lots of fish, octopus, squid and prawns and mussels. Very tasty. Very filling. The complimentary honey run is always appreciated at the end... More

First night had steak which was tough and not very nice at all, gave them another chance another night had a fish platter which was tasteless have had many fish platters in different restaurants and this was by far the worst, wouldn't recommend at all not very reasonable either.
