So after leaving a new venue - we came "home"! Many many thanks to all the staff here who are so professional, helpful and go the extra mile. Cold drinks, iced glasses, attention to detail! 2 of us had the tenderloin - which was exactly that - tender, succulent and flavourful. Pork chops outstanding and excellent Dorado. Wonderful vegetables. Never... More

I am struggling to find positive things to say about this awful experience. The obvious strength is the view of the sea from the restaurant and bar that sit right on the shore. Our evening started pleasantly enough with drinks in a shady spot near the bar. The first sign of things to come was with the dish described as... More
