So many people recommended this restaurant that we had to try it and were really looking forward to our "meal of the week". Of the four starters two were very good and two were adequate. The wine was good. However for the main course three of us ordered a lamb dish. It was so tough and full of gristle that we left most of it. We decided not to complain but our young waiter was not at all happy and asked if the meal was to our liking. We wanted to be tactful and said that we had tried to chew it but that it was just too tough. He ignored the comment and took our plates away. I have to believe that we were very unfortunate in our choice and that the food is normally of a much higher standard. However we were disappointed in how the situation was dealt with.

Nice cooked food and fresh ingredients used. Polite staff and nice environment out in the garden. Slight delays in bringing the main dishes but worth waiting.

The setting couldn't be any better; a stunning garden and grapevine awning covering the dining patio that is set off from the platanos square and completely blocks out the town noise.
The servers and staff are friendly but lack the refinement you would expect from such a classy place. 20 minutes after finishing our dinner and with empty wine and water glasses I had to get up from the table to track down a hostess to pay my bill.
We ordered the pork with plum entree as an app and it was dry and overcooked. For main courses we chose the Malaysian chicken and the lamb with yogurt and coriander. The lamb is the only one worth ordering from what we tried. Don't bother with wine by the glass, as it was terrible. Either buy a bottle or stick with water. Prices were fair and around 11 or 12 for most main courses and 7 for apps. Beef dishes were 18. Make a reservation just to be sure because every table was full by 9

We were so happy that we got off the main tourist strip and ate at Perivoli, which is tucked a few streets back in a beautiful courtyard. The food here was delicious and fresh. It was also far better value than many other places that we ate. Highly recommended!
