Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Visited here nearly everyday of our week long stay as there wasnt much choice in the area. The food was lovely. Area really nice coutyard with palm trees. Staff very rude especially one of the girls who was actually throwing her eyes up to heaven and very slow. She didnt seem to care if we enjoyed our visit to the restsurant or not

My wife and I went twice to this restaurant evening time say 20.30. we sat inside where it was slightly cooler and no smoking. Most people seemed to come from the local hotels just to chill out and to have a drink or shop in the two touristy shops selling clothes, trinkets creams aloe vera and the likes, all sorts of shoes and paintings done by a local artist.
The food was quite good steak with fresh frie's and a lovely salad with plenty of olives. We tried the house wine Blanco it was very drinkable for the price 10 euro's, the steak was about the best we have had in Costa Calma. cooked in it's own juice and very tender.
As regards the service we were served by a male waiter the 1st time who said they all work 12 hour shifts, it must be quite tiring in the heat about 28-9.c the service was quick and efficient, with a smile at my attempts to speak Spanish,
The 2nd time we went we were served by a young lady who had a pleasant attitude and tried hard to please. All in all the staff were friendly and eager to please, even the Chef came out of his kitchen to hear our thank you's and wished us well.
I would say go and try it even if it's for a toastie and a drink at lunchtime.

Very nice bar (inside and out) with a couple of good gift shops attached to it (lovely jewellery etc and some nice clothes). We stopped off for several drinks (good mojitos!) and had lunch there - would definitely recommend.

We visited about 5 or 6 times in a week. Outdoor bar area lovely with plenty of tables & palm trees. Inside decor is pleasant with a few tables. They have a daytime food menu (serve till about 5pm). They serve either a half (2 euros) or whole (3 euros) veggie baguette which is delicious. However, the service is incredibly slow - only visit if you have a few hours to chill. You could easily wait 20 minutes before you get a drink so order food a bit earlier before you get really really hungary.
