We went here on the last night of our holiday as a treat. We stay in Playa Honda a lot and have been going to go for ages. The food here is very good. However the restaurant staff need to help guests with the menu more if you are not familiar with the menu. The service was a bit rushed in some respects. As soon as the starters were cleared the main courses arrived. They don't clear everyone together which means you have to rush. No one poured the champagne either. There were other people in too who appeared to be Spanish and they concentrated on them rather than us who were English. There were no accompaniments to the main courses such as vegetables or potatoes and none were suggested. I think the restaurant is overpriced and the service not so good. Don't think we will be back.

We had tried several local restaurants but they all stopped serving at 10.30. This restaurant was recommended to is as a place to go for that special occasion, so not having nowhere to eat was special enough. Welcomed at the door and a table within 15 minutes was just great.
I had the Sea Bass and my wife had a Pork dish. The presentation and the quality of the food was superb. The service was what you would expect, excellent. This was a great find and reasonably priced. Has a great wine selection too.
Its great to go to a restaurant and leave with a smile on your face.
Just go there and treat your palette.
Top Marks Malvasia.

Had the most fabulous meal here, a friend who lives in the area mentioned checking it out, I have an apartment here which i only ever manage to get to use once a year or so and did not realise it even existed, wow what a shock, we had fabulous food, wine that was, well, superb, and the service was 5 star, I most certainly will be returning back here and will definitely be recommending to any future clients of mine.
