“Very dissappointed!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We went here because of the recommendations on trip advisor. The restaurant was very hard to find as there was no sign anywhere on the building and the address was unhelpful. The waitress who served us was delightful. No printed menu was available because 'the produce was fresh'. We wanted a light meal of 5 or 6 tapas but were told we had to have a main course because the place was fully booked although it was empty when we arrived and empty when we left. The Alborino wine was delicious. We settled for two main courses. Jamaican jerk mahi mahi and sea bass. The piece of mahi mahi was miniscule, dry, tasteless, and overcooked. It came with a salad without dressing and a small portion of dry rice. The sea bass was slightly better but came with the same uninspired salad and some boiled potatoes thrown on the plate without any butter or seasoning. We cut our losses and left without having anything else. I was not surprised that they refused Amex.

“We could eat here every day!”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

I dined here with my family over the summer and it was our first time at the restaurant.

Wow! what a pleasant change from eating in the restaurants in Leigh and Ocean Beach.

The staff here are fantastic, they are happy attentive and friendly.

The food is just superb and the best we have tasted in the area after living here for 30 years. I wish we had eaten here sooner.

The décor is perfect and has the best view. I have no idea why people would bother with the Boat yard and Ocean beach where their staff our rude and the food is overpriced.

This is a must for everyone.

“Don't judge a book by its cover!”
Reviewed 21 August 2013 via mobile

From the outside its not appealing however we decided on lunch there - 2 adults, a 12 and a 15 year old. We went for the tapas x 8. A really good selection and things we had never had before. All were delicious. The service was excellent; quick and very friendly. Good value for money. We have booked for the paella night!
