“Twice so far and will be back.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We have had two great meals here. The pace was a litltle slow on our last visit but who cares. The team of two are hard working and focused on serving good food. After seeing a paella we have decided to go back and try one. A real favourite in Playa Blanca. 5 days remaining of our holiday.
For some reason my tablet will only score 'average' but worth more.

“Really excellent two nights in a row”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

We often don't return to places as we like new experiences , but found this the night before our last night of the holiday. We had great steaks , flambé, in pepper sauce , which were excellent, the king prawns we shared as a starter also really excellent , this is family run with a few people and therefore the service is evenly paced but we were in no rush. Do it be put off by the road side location. They were delightfully to out nine year old, so we went for our last night and it w just as good.

“Poor food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013 via mobile

We ate here two years ago and the food was great. So we went back this year. I'm afraid to say that the food was well below standard. The starter we ordered of prawns and octopus was nice. We ordered two fillet steaks. We were so disappointed. Hey were cooked a little under and I think the oil wasn't hot enough because the outside of the steak was crisp at all and it felt like I was eating a steak cooked in the oven or one that had been reheated. The veg was mushy and probably cooked from frozen. Won't be going again.

Beautiful food, friendly staff, extremely reasonable prices! We come here (and eat most meals here to be honest!) every visit to the island and have never had a bad meal,

“Lovely Tapas”

Wonderful food, comfortable atmosphere, nice waitress, and a boss who treats customers as friends. We ordered a set including steak, seafood grill and a dessert, all amazing at very reasonable prices! Love this place.
