We took friends here for dinner having previously enjoyed lunches here. The evening special at €22.95 looked reasonable but only the risotto was particularly good. There were issues with the service with wrong drinks and a missing main course. The waiter/owner could have handled this with more grace but having seen the owner's comments here on less than glowing reviews it seems he does not handle criticism too well! Bread and allioli was expensive. There is too much competition from any number of quality restaurants in Moraira for us to revisit any time soon.

2 couples for evening meal. Fixed price menu looked good and all ordered from it. Starters were good. Bread offered and discovered at the end we were charged 3 euros each for it.

3 of us ordered sirloin steak. All very tough and one requested medium received it rare. Complained and waiter agreed it was cooked incorrectly also told him all steaks were very tough. Offered to redo but we declined as not pleasant anyway.

When bill came, charged full price for all steaks and even worse an extortionate 5 euros for steak sauces.

We won’t be going back.

The bread is clearly priced on our menus & includes freshly backed olive infused rolls served with homemade alioli, grated tomato, homemade sun dried tomato & basil butter, mixed local olives & imported Portuguese sardine paste! & at 2,80€ I believe a bargain! The sauces are an additional price, clearly marked on our menu. As stated the one sirloin in question was admittedly slightly under cooked & we were glad to change this for you but you declined, all the other dishes were totally eaten!.. we made you an extra large dessert to try to rectify you problem & removed the surcharge for the one sirloin.... not really worth such a poor review I feel...

We decided on going here early on Monday but when we turned up there was no one there which put us off. We decided though to give it a go and thank his we did! We had the menu of the day, Piri piri prawns and crab, prawn and asparagus for me followed by Baileys and chocolate cheesecake and goats cheese, sea bass and crepes for my wife. The food was excellent and whilst it did seem like private dining for a while the service was excellent, attentive without that overbearing air! Not only that as the wind got up they gave my wife a blanket for her shoulders!!! The place started to fill up but go, enjoy it and if the wind blows enjoy the warmth of the blankets!

Popped in for a drink lunchtime as they had comfortable sofas. Viewed the menu and decided to return for evening meal. The owner who takes time to involve himself with his customers highly recommended the steak. True to his word the steak was exceptional. The menu is slightly different and slightly more expensive than most. But you don’t mind paying for attentive service and extremely good food.
