Situated on the second floor of El Zoco this has a roof terrace with views out to the sea. We were there for English/Irish breakfast which was excellent and good value as tea, toast and marmalade were included, unlike other establishments. In high season they haveentertainment most nights but only occasional at the weekends in the off season

I have written a few times about this restaurant highlighting how good the breakfast was and was disappointed to find a changed winter breakfast menu. Food was fine,chips served as I trust hash browns were not in stock, just the basic breakfast items but none of the extras that made this my preferred choice. Staff were great however I think...

Great views from here. The Food and service were good, I went with cold beer for a change, this place does what it says on the tin. Honest food priced well. Thanks Barboru

Went for a breakfast today and what a disappointing breakfast it was. Asked for scrambled eggs which the chef forgot to change so rather than replate just pushed the fried eggs off and left the yolk all over the plate. The other people I was with had shell in the eggs. All round a bit of a disaster

We went along to see Nick Cripps performance. He was magic! I noticed some mixed TA reviews and so was slightly apprehensive - no need. A very warm reception and it was nice to see that a number of regulars turn out to see Nick on a Friday - had a starter and for a change - we both went... More

We ate here while staying in the area, great restaurant and great food. They have a separate smokers area, which is almost unheard in Spain, but a pleasant change

Went here for dinner on the back of some very good T/A reviews and was really disappointed.When we arrived at El Zoco,the restaurants downstairs were buzzing with people and atmosphere. Upstairs,at BarBoru,only 1 table was taken and they soon left,leaving us as the only table taken in the whole restaurant. The food was very average,although we had different stews and... More

We at here on Sunday evening, it wasn't too busy but enough guests for a good atmosphere. The musician added to the occasion, not to loud or overpowering. We had starters, main course and desert. All food was well prepared and the service was very friendly and efficient. It's really a pub type restaurant but that's reflected in the price,... More
