“STUFFED!”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

We went twice during our week long holiday, on our first night and last night. Excellent food, large portions and delicious.You would not need extra portions as the mains is big enough. Middle range priced. Depending on what time you go in the evening is wether you have to wait on a table or not, and the wait is not too long.Between 8pm and 9.30 would be peak times. You can admire the veiw over the beach while you are waiting. Kids portions are just right and no problems with service. Staff very pleasant. i would reccommend the Sizzling Chicken, i had it both nights it was sooo good, it also came with a baked potato which i could not eat! Also the honey BBQ ribs ... devine :).
Come here with a very empty tummy!

“Starve yourself first!”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

I am a big bloke, used to eating large portions of food and rarely beaten by anything on a plate, but oh my goodness...this place know how to fill you up! We thought we'd be clever on our second visit by ordering four meals between five of us - and we still left some.

We would thoroughly recommend the steaks, the fajitas and the ribs to anyone (and, indeed, did do so at every opportunity we got while we were in Santa Ponsa!). It was the most expensive meal we ate by a long way but it was the only place any of us wanted to visit for a second time as our last night dinner.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

I went here with 6 of my family members and was not impressed with the service at all one of the waitresses had a face that would stop a clock on her. We spent quite alot of money opn the food and it was definlty not worth the money i would not return to this place again

“OMG do not eat before you go!!”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

Although the service was extremely slow and the children were starving, when the food did arrive, it was fantastic. I would say not to order any additional extras and we only had the main courses and still struggled to finish it all. My husband went for the mix of steak, chicken and ribs which he said was delicious. The children loved their dinner.

“A pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

Went here on the second night of our holiday out of curiosity more than anything as it was busy from it opening until closing. We did have to wait to get a table but they do serve you drinks while you wait and it is worth it. My boyfriend got the newyork strip and chicken combo and the chicken was cooked to perfection. The meal came with two different sauces and a choice of butter on the steak. It was his favourite meal of the holiday. I got the baby ribs and if you like ribs you will love this place!
