Dined at this restaurant on Sunday 23 December as part of a group of eleven but suffered afterwards from very bad food poisoning from the duck in fig sauce. As a consequence, I had to cancel a day's trip of the island which I'd booked...More

We chose from the main menu and it was absolutely lovely, sea bass and grilled lamb cutlets, but you don't get much for the money spent €70 just for one starter, two main courses, half a litre of Sangria and a pint of lager!

Our favourite restaurant. The atmosphere and people are really great. We ate there 4 times last year and twice now. The green pepper flamerande steak is a favourite, however this year it was missing something. Maybe the raw ingredients are not as good as they...More

I don't remember seeing paella on the menu but I really don't know. They seemed very helpful and I think that if you went in and asked before you were planning to eat, they may.
