“Great Atmosphere, Tasty Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We loved this place for lots of reasons, but mostly for its location. It sits at the top of a busy park, and has seats outside the front of it. Perfect for people watching as the park gets bust at night with street performers, vendors, music and locals hanging out. We ordered 2 appetizers. The first was portobello mushrooms with cheese and we felt it was kind of bland. But we also ordered a mixed plate of olives, pate, tzatziki, hummus and fried cheese. It came with bread and pita and was delicious. The only problem was that we ate so much of it, we didn't feel like eating our pizzas. We ordered the Tropical pizza and the fig/goat cheese one. Both seemed good but we were so full it was hard to tell. We didn't experience issues with the service like some reviewers - in fact, we had a waitress who spoke perfect English which was very helpful.

“Excellent food awful service ”

The food was amazing, the service was terrible, the beverages took 3 times for the server to bring them and the same with the check at the end. Great food! Very bad service.

“Good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

There was a good crowd sitting outside so we decided to give it a shot. The food was good and not scary like some other places we have eaten :) i would recommend the pizza. My boyfriend got the carbonara and it was tasty but a little soupy. Good atmosphere!

“It was OK.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

I didn't have anything fancy, just the Margherita pizza, but it was a bit bland. Not terrible, just not terribly good. Large portions, though, so I had pizza for breakfast the next morning.
Maybe their other dishes justify this place's reputation? But honestly, I think there are less touristy restaurants that are better. Like Merka, for example.

“Great spot, awesome people watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

I was wholly impressed with this restaurant. The location on the Parque Novios cannot be beat. I had the roast chicken and my wife had a pizza. They only have one size pizza, but it's a nice in between, not small, not too big. Enough to take a few slices to eat later. Try to sit outside so you can watch the people walking by. We didn't need a reservation on a Thursday night, but I'm not sure about a Friday or Saturday.
