“Excellent meals portions are huge”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

Ate here twice during our week in Santa Ponsa I'd read the great reviews before I left home and it was on our list of places to try. On our first visit we didn't know the portions would be so huge and they kindly gave us a doggy bag to take back to our apartments. The kids enjoyed their meals too and got a main meal, a dessert and a drink for 7 euros each. On our second visit mindful of the portion size we only ordered starters and there was plenty of food so glad we chose this option. The staff were mostly British & Irish and friendly and efficient. It's a busy place and most tables were full which is always a good sign.

“Yummy yummy indeed!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

If you are ever in Santa Ponsa be sure to pay Sam a visit. It is an all Americano experience with portion sizes to match. Our group had the Brisket burger, the chicken platter and the chicken nuggets, each one filling and delicious with not a freezer food ingredient to be seen - only fresh and hot food here. It is more expensive than most in Santa Ponsa (dishes 12 - 15 euros) but you get the quality you pay for. My portion was so big I even had to take some of the chicken away with me.
Don't be surprised to see a queue or have to wait longer than usual for your food but the wait will be worth it.
Thanks Sam!

Giant portion sizes so prepare to leave a little bloated! The food is so tasty you will need to visit more than once to sample different dishes. Many thanks to Charlie and staff for another fabulous evening, with great views over the beach and a relaxed atmosphere :-)
