“Wow .. What a find !”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Fab location and fantastic food and service. We had a awesome lunch for a family of 4. Meals were a little light on quantity but quality of the offerings were some of the best we have experienced in two months of travel around Aus. Poached Pear and rocket salad was a hit along with the Chefs selection platter, the scallops were great but a little over cooked. Spanish beers were tasty and matched the food offerings. Overall highly recommended. Well done !!

“A must restaurant to visit when in the Airlie Beach area.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

I joined my friends here for lunch last week. The view of the stunning blue water and sailing boats set the atmosphere. The menu (Spanish) looked so good we couldn't make a choice. So we decided to order a selection of meals and share. The scallop and prawn dishes were delicious but the pear and blue cheese salad was too die for and was easily the favorite of the day.The food and sauces are prepared Mediterranean style and the freshness and quality showed. We were going to try the infused gin and tonic drinks but not being a fan of gin decided against it. Our waiter suggested as we liked vodka try that instead of gin. I tried the strawberry and lime and was not disappointed. Dessert ..... no we couldn't. That was until we saw the "Textures of Chocolate Dessert" Amazing!!!!! If you like chocolate you will LOVE this.After this wonderful experience we just sat and enjoyed the view. Don't miss this restaurant if you are in the area.

“a good place to eat”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had a really nice dinner here. We had several tapas and we really enjoyed all of them. Everything was fresh and tasted good. They also serve a good coffee/cappuccino to end yourmeal with. The location is also pretty and easy to reach.

“Great spot”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

My husband and I popped in here for the first time on Sunday night for a quick drink and a bite to eat. It is a fantastic location we watched the sun set along with the boats all coming in after a day out on the water. Service was good and food was also good we ordered the chefs selection plate which involved cured meats and cheeses and we also ordered a bread. Was great size for the two of us. Will definitely be back!

“Best Meal in Town”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Had a brilliant meal on our last night in Airlie Beach - which we had discovered this restaurant earlier in the week. Beautiful, fresh, modern food and excellent service. The Churros for dessert was a particular highlight. No better spot to watch the sun set, have a cocktail or sangria and enjoy some sensational food.
