“Good location but unable to see the view and overpriced”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 via mobile

We visited here for having some food but I couldn't. We had pinchos, 7up and beer. The pinchos are ok but beer is 3.30 euros and 7up is 2.40 euros. One thing which made us angry was waiter gave us bill with incorrect price. We complained about it but they looked us as if we lied to them.

In general, food was ok and location is wonderful but no one couldn't sit by the window and drink is very expensive.

Don't want to go again.

“Excellent Meal, Fabulous Views, Great Staff”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

We weren't sure what to expect when we got to this place in an public park overlooking the city. The main room is a strange bar/cafeteria with people milling about and football on the tv. However, we located the dining room at the rear which was most attractive, all laid up with white table cloths and sparkling glasses. Excellent view from the mostly glass wall over the city. We were the only pepole in there to begin with and I'm not sure how but we never got any menus - the friendly waiter just made suggestions and we went along with them. Lovely large garlic prawns & serrano ham to start followed by excellent steak. Loads of lovely wine and we all (8 of us) rated our food very highly. The waiting staff were excellent and even though we'd eaten and drunk a fair amount, the bill was quite reasonable for this quality of restaurant.

“Pretentious, unfriendly and overpriced”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

We ate at this place last week and what a disappointment. It was our last day in Spain before travelling home and we thought it would be nice to eat somewhere a bit more upmarket with a view. We picked this place as it appeared to have a vegetarian choice. The veg. choice was a plate of overcooked entirely tasteless vegetables costing 12euros. The waiter was off-hand and unhelpful. A ham salad starter cost the same and was at least presented nicely. Any upside? Decent glass of wine at a fair price.
