Food is really good, i have tried peppersteak, mussels and lambchops. If you have a bigger group, make a reservation, smaller groups normally get in without reservation.

Superb restaurant that serves you at their speed. Some might call it slow, but they do this so that each dish gets proper attention from the cook. Very very busy. On one evening, we were lucky to seat ourselves and get served almost immediately. Five minutes later there was a queue of fifteen at the door. Over two visits we had the seafood parillada, the chicken and the merluza al la plancha. All were excellent, and well complemented by the Tehyda Seco white wine (and when that ran out the house white was pretty good as well!).

The rating made us curious, but we were a little bit disappointed after the dinner. The service was not nice (it was hectic and crowded). The dishes (Sama fish and rabbit) were too cooked and not really tasty.

We had the meat parrilada , cooked well ,very tasty and a treat of real chips! . We couldn't finish it, there was more than enough for 3 people although we only had salad as a starter . The service is professional but not smiley, it's always busy but only 45 metres from our apartment .

My partner and I ordered the salmon and grilled octopus with bread with garlic dip to start.
The octopus was ok, but certainly not something we will be ordering again - shocked at the raving reviews on here for it... was bland.
The salmon was fantastic however the Canaries style potatoes came out slightly warm, as if they had been cooked previously and warmed up in a microwave.
Bread starter was lovely - warmed up bread and nice garlic dip (although this was on the menu as 75c it wasn't added to the bill so I think this is given to all diners free of charge.... so order anyway)
My main disapproval was the rude and disinterested front of house staff.... the Waiters are rude and do not acknowledge you when you arrive at the restaurant. When we left me and my partner said bye to the older guy who took our payment.... when we both said bye individually he looked through us and didn't even acknowledge us - rude old man.
Also with mentioning is there is a poor little bird stuck in a tiny cage by the bar at the back of the courtyard.... very cruel and was looking very distressed during our meal.
Wouldn't go to again.... plenty of much better places near by!
