“Close to Hilton”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We went to this restaurant as it was close to the Hilton where we were staying and because of the good reviews. Well we were disappointed. My son and I both had pizzas that were average really. All the toppings were finely chopped up and mixed together, and cooked underneath the cheese (which there was lots of), which just swamped everything and made it tasteless. The staff were friendly and attentive which was good. A strange setting really as well...the outside eating area is located next to a small swimming pool and a trampoline. Why would anyone want to swim and trampoline while/ after eating? Perhaps great for small kids, but not if you wanted some quiet peace or adult ambience. I would not recommend this place if you wanted a romantic meal.
Overall, average at best.

“Lovely restaurant in a great relaxed setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We visited once for dinner and once for lunch. Both times the food was fantastic, the sangria was delicious and the pool before and after lunch wAs great. Enjoyed a lovely jug of sangria sat in the deck chairs in the sun by the pool before sitting down for lunch. A definite find.

“Reasonable priced food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

A short walk from the Hilton. Staff were friendly and keen to serve. Food was enjoyable, a reasonable variety on the menu, in all a relaxed place to eat away from the hussle and bustle of the marina restaurants.

“A MUST VISIT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Myself and my fiancé visited this restaurant today and it was amazing! Glad we visited after seeing the reviews as we were not disappointed! We ate a small bread starter and got the pork, clam and prawn platter to share with rice, I think it's one of the most delicious meals we have ever tasted! We also got a jug of sangria and several cocktails for less than 60euro! The same meal back home would set us back 80 or 90 sterling! The service was excellent, the staff are so friendly and accommodating and the actual restaurant is stunning! Delighted that we visited on our first night here and we have already planne our next meal here! If you fail to visit you WILL be missing out!
