Brilliant location for watching the world and boats go by whilst eating the most flavoursome tapas served by excellent staff and all very reasonably priced we ended up visiting 3 times!! Check out the tiramisu yummy

Wow! We ate at this fantastic restaurant one lunchtime and something felt different about it. As there are loads of different tapas restaurants on this island , this one stood out because it felt fresh and cared for , not to mention the fantastic food and wonderful staff.

Well in a nutshell we were very disappointed given what is usually trustworthy TA advice.

First the plus points. This place is on the seafront at the end of the promenade facing the harbour and a lovely spot to eat al fresco. The female staff are also very friendly and the fresh calamari and fried anchovies we had as tapas were very good.

However

The surly male waiter was appalling. Making anyone who just wanted drinks unwelcome including an elderly couple who sat down. Making no eye contact with any customer when taking orders, abrupt and unhelpful. We asked if there were any craft beers and were told no, only the local Tropical lager but then on a visit to the loo there were some craft dorada beers available at the bar so we ordered separately from one of the female waitresses.

As well as the calamari and anchovies we also ordered tapas meatballs and tortilla. The meatballs were poor and possibly undercooked. We asked if they were pork and the waiter gave a very unconvincing yes which did not help given one of us is beef intolerant. The tortilla was very dry and one of the worst we’ve eaten.

To be fair one of the female waitresses asked if we liked the meatballs and when we said no, took the price of the bill. This was really appreciated.

So as you can read a real mixed bag of an experience and nothing like some of the other reviews. Aside from the food, if we had just been served by one of the female staff we would have given 3 stars and put the rest down to a bad day. Whoever the owner is should seriously consider evaluating the service from other members of staff and making sure the food quality is consistent and lives up to the high standards we are sure they aspire to.

Unable to recommend.
