We thought that, in an island country, we should eat seafood (although they do also serve meat). So we asked the waiter to suggest the best prawn dish and the best fish one. His advice was great. We ate grilled prawns and a dish of grilled cherne (a white fish I didn't know) served over vegetables. Both were great. But... More

Excellent fish and meat dishes and service awaits you here, as well as some appetizers and entrees not found in other restaurants-even the popular ones. Make no mistake about it, it will be more expensive-maybe twicw what you you usually pay. But, for example, you can enjoy hard to find lobster and sea bass as well as some landlubber options...

And yes it was funny to an extent but given the hefty price tag at then end hugely disappointing. Service pretty dismal , mostly dismissive. First and second choice from the menu not available. Brought wrong wine too , assume didn't have what we ordered but who knows. Had a decent steak and chips (no veg etc offered or served)... More

That the hundreds of photographs on the walls of this atmospheric restaurant, just off Plaza Espana, are almost without exception of your hostess with dignatories, celebrities and friends does not augur well. But get over that and here you can join with the locals who know how to enjoy excellent food and wine, expertly served by the attentive staff. This... More

The phonecall to ask for a table was a very welcoming experience: the host, a beautyfull older Spanish woman, does an excellent job in letting you feel welcome! The evening itself was very nice: good service, very nice athmosphere. The food was also good, but a little overpriced. Our diner for two ended up in an 145,- euro-bill. We had... More

Popular with locals, but the food was very poor. Don't try the lamb shoulder. Perhaps it suits local tastes. The service was quick and professional. The live lobsters in a tank was off putting.

This felt like a restaurant from the Spanish mainland. The ambience and food had a slightly old-fashioned feel that was heightened by the decor and especially the multitude of wall photographs featuring the owner and [presumably] celebrities of varying distinction.. You often saw that in Spanish restaurants, perhaps less so now. We had a perfectly agreeable meal on a quiet... More
