What a find. A fabulous restaurant, very modern with lots of impact. Even the toilets were a treat. The food was delicious and the service was warm and friendly. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

We dined here a couple of weeks ago, seduced by the positive comments about 'black pig' 10 hour cooked pork and so on. First of all this restaurant is quite a way out of Playa Blanca, a taxi ride, which wasn't a problem. The hostess...More
