“Beautiful Evening Meal”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We visited this restaurant while staying at the Estival resort as a little break from the AI dining. We were not disappointed.
Once we had been seated and ordered our food and drinks a complimentary plate of seafood was brought for us to enjoy. We had one of the many paella's on offer and it was very tasty, and enormous portions! There wasn't a children's menu as such but they did offer to make half portions of things on the menu such as carbonara, but felt there could be a little more on offer for children. Having said that they staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly towards our daughter.
There are other restaurants along the front in La Pineda offering paellas and seafood for cheaper but I'd say this was perhaps a slightly classier establishment than those. Our total bill came to around 80euros which consisted of our paella at 35euro, a litre of sangria, 2 glasses of house wine, bread, a child's meal and drink, deserts and coffee so all in all not bad value and certainly worth the visit.

“Really good food but not set up to accommodate children”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

So let me be clear on what I mean by my review title. The staff at this restaurant are really good. Extremely friendly and they clearly like children. The fault lies in the menu itself for children or distinct lack of it. The restaurant's approach to feeding children is to give them a "half portion" of spaghetti or carbonara that's it. There is absolutely no other main meal available for the child to eat. Despite this we did go back to the restaurant twice during our weeks holiday I was just a little disappointed on our first visit that our daughter ended up having only chips for her dinner as she didn't want pasta (having already had pasta for lunch). The second time we visited we were more prepared and knowing her only option for dinner was pasta we ensured she had no pasta at any other point during the day leading up to dinner!

That aside however the food itself was lovely with a good menu variety of meats and fish. The staff were just great and the food was reasonably priced.

In my opinion the best restaurant in La Pineda resort foodwise but what is stopping this place from being excellent is their overwhelming lack of any menu that caters for children and this could be remedied very easily.

“Great meal”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

I visited the restaurant last Friday evening and I had a wonderful meal and a drink in this very lively and busy restaurant. The service was good even thought the place was buzzing. The food was excellent and location looked out onto the seafront. Highly recommend it.
