Average food and service. Very nice location with a fine seaview. We asked for something special beacause one i our party celebratet her birthday. They had no such things as a special desert or drink and didn't bother to make any effort.

Fish lovely however rest of the menu not as tasty and a bit of a disappointment. Partner has steak and not very appetising.

Short walk from our apartment enticed us to visit for dinner.
We thoroughly enjoyed it - so much we came back for another dinner later in the week plus a late lunch.
Highlights for us included shellfish soup and prawns pil pil for appetizers with fried mixed fish and paella great mains.
Their house wine is Faustino VII at €13 - a nice wine not overpriced.
Service was very good and location overlooking the sea is unbeatable.

We went here twice. Once we went down by the beach area at night. They had a live female performer and sang a great set of well known current songs. We drank and just chilled. They were busy but it was a good time. We went around lunch time and if you drive, parking is at a premium. We actually parked in the dirt turn around area. The food was good, but a little on the expensive side. We sat upstairs in the dinning area where the views of the Mediterranean was spectacular. I had a grilled kabob with vegetables that was very tasty. My friend ordered an oyster soup and spaghetti. It was a little on the expensive side, but it was a great lunch all and all.

My husband and I went here on 10th September 2017 for a dinner on the last evening of our holiday. My husband ordered a medium steak and I ordered medium well, both with pepper sauce. When they arrived they were smothered in sauce and when we cut in to them both were rare.
We didn't see a waiter until about 15minutes later when they assumed we had finished and when we complained he agreed they were rare and offered to cook them some more. We declined as they were as previously stated smothered in sauce and by this time stone cold.
No wonder only three tables were occupied. We have been here many times in the past but not for approximately 3 years and we always found the food and service excellent. The owner Pepe has obviously taken his eye off the ball. We won't be going again.
