Have gone there about 20 times over the last 5 or 6 years and love it every time...
Staff really try to help as we gave kids who are fussy eaters .
We are always happy with the food, the prawns pil pil are execelent and also the swordfish and pork kebab is filling and delicious.
Great wine list as well.

I went here with my brother and his family. The inside bar and restaurant seems nice but isn't really used in the summer. Instead we made our way out to the back yard....and it really isn't anymore welcoming than that. There are a number of tables set out on the concrete with some pretty unwelcoming plastic, beer sponsored, chairs placed around them. This is the low point as from here on in things generally improved. The menu is well laid out and in an array of languages. Sadly there is no set kids meals but plenty to choose from anyway. The dishes aren't explained in any meaningful way but in my mind this only heightened the excitement; what arrived didn't disappoint. The food was no nonsense grub. Really well made. My only regret was to fail to order the garlic prawns as a starter which looked and smelt amazing!

Sensibly priced menu and a good wine list,this restaurant is very popular with the local villa owners and we were surprised how busy it was on the first Monday in June.
Our party all agreed that the pi pi prawns were excellent and their entrecote steaks are the "best". Our favourite FaustinoVIII tinto was finished but replaced with an even better rioja,costing €4 more,at no extra cost.
Service was pretty good and we will no doubt return.
