Only in salou for a week and we visited this place twice. I just read the review that said the English were not welcome. Our experience was the opposite. Then again, I make an effort to speak their language and we didn't have children running around. we found the food to be excellent and the staff to be friendly. I... More

Tried here and wanted a seat by the outside so that the children could play on the pedestrian walkway, but very rude staff refused us sitting there, so we had to move. Gave it a go a second time and again we were not permitted to choose where we sat and again we were moved. This time we walked out.... More

Though it was not peak season this restaurant was full, so that must be positive, and it was. We enjoyed a lovely dinner there and economical.

Had a lovely lunch of pan fried sea bass, stuffed pimentos and a green salad, washed down with a bottle of house white. Perfect lunch for 2. Probably not the cheapest place in town but excellent position (people watching galore!) and fresh... More

We had planned to visit here during our stay (as we wanted some authentic tapas), using the Trip Advisor App to save this restaurant so as to use the map facility to easily locate it. Bearing in mind it was 8pm when we arrived, there were no other diners which seemed strange as other nearby restaurants were very busy. Upon... More

We ordered a t bone, it came pretty quickly but sooooo much salt on it, I ordered it rare and it came well done in a fried pan, with another plate of chips and another plate for the sauce, why ? Then the steak was so difficult to cut, can't even eat it. Don't recommend it if you are a... More
