“Meat!!!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

If you love meat this is the place to go. For 12.90 euros have the BBQ. You get about 13 meats brought to your table one at a time, on skewers by the chef who carefully slices it for you. Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken, Chorizo all cooked differently. You will also get chips, rice, black bean sauce, a couple of dips and salad all of which you can ask for more.
Fantastic value for money and good quality also.

“No Good for Vegetarians”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

A choice of something like 10 meats... with unlimited quantities. We've only been the once and found the meat to be only average quality. True - the meats are all served from a BBQ, and are cooked so that you can have a choice of rare, medium or well done. But there seems to be not enough 'good' meats (beef) and too many sausages...Vegetables (and pineapple) are available of course.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We went there for lunch to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. We were a party of nine.

The various dishes served up over the course of a couple of hours was superb. Superb quality & great variety. All presented on big skewers where you helped yourself to a much or as little as you like. Chicken, Beef, Pork etc

Nice sauces and salad on the side with a good selection of drink.

We had supplied a cake which they happily prepared for the end which we left a few slices for the staff.

Staff were superb, friendly & very good humored. Surprised with the price at the end as there were nine of us which was very reasonable. The restaurant also overlooks the sea

“A meat treat”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We were introduced to this cafe by our hosts' local relatives. The format is simple - 11.95 euros for a selection of barbecued meats, salads and sauces. The service is efficient and very friendly. The waiters walk round with long skewers on which will be a particular cut of meat, or chicken or a variety of sausages. If the skewer has a large cut of meat, the waiter slices pieces of meat off which you hold with your own pair of tongs to transfer to your plate.
You can have as much as you want but you can chose what you want. This Rosbif loved the roast beef - tender and extremely tasty, but there are plenty of different meats to choose from. Your salads will also be topped up if you want more.
To finish you can have roasted pineapple, dusted with cinnamon. Again, this was very tender, juicy and tasty. Himself, who hates cinnamon, was served with the innermost slices which were free from the spice but still wonderfully flavoured.
You can take your time and the huge parasols are adjusted by the waiters to move round with the sun if you are there for a significant period of time.
Tellingly this was not the cheapest such cafe on this stretch providing this type of dining but was one of the busiest.
Nothing fancy - just good attention to the choice of meat cuts and how they are cooked, delivered at super value and with a smile
