Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My husband chose chicken Milanesa for a main, it seemed lovely, thinner chicken round the edge and thick in the middle. We sat and chatted while we ate, as he got to the middle of the chicken he said it was chewy, had a look...and the chicken was raw. We called the young man waiter over to tell him. His attitude was appalling. He said, so you ate most of it then noticed it was raw !! He was almost saying it was my husbands fault for not inspecting it. He was very dismissive and took it away saying what do you want me to do. Well, an apology would have been nice. He disappeared into the kitchen but came back out and avoided us for the rest of our time in there. We mentioned it to the waitress who said she would tell him. We thought that this would prompt an apology, but still nothing. Then the bill came, no mention of anything, no apology, nothing. We wouldn't mind but this restaurant has been popular with us for a good few years, what a shame !!More

We decided to pop in, take our friends to this restaurant as was good when we were here some time ago. One can eat in or outdoors. Restaurant was packed, mostly spanish, which I find lovely. One could order from the menu or the memu...del dia (menu of the day which entails 3 courses at a reasonable price). We had beers, tinto de verano and wine. 3 out of 4 of us ordered from the menu del dia. Good food, good service. Relaxed environment. The toilets can do with a bit of updating. Nice prices. Not fine dining, but very chilled and welcoming restaurant! Thank you for your services!!More

On the sea front on a nice sunny day in July. We all had wine at €2.50 each for white or red. Then opted for menu of the day at €10.90 each which consisted of 3 courses. I had mains of roast beef with gravy...then had a chocolate brownie with ice cream with all the food seemed lovely. Staff were very pleasant too.More

My wife & my selections of camembert starters were lovely - Good start we thought! Unfortunately my main dish of pork knuckle was overcooked but worse of all, the chips & salad we're saturated & swimming in fat & in my opinion totally inedible. I...asked if the chips could be changed because of their poor condition but the male 'waiter' rudely walked away. I then showed a female attendee, who brought me a portion of chips on a separate plate. Having finished our desserts the bill arrived with a charge for the replacement chips & two 'takeaway' containers - Of course we complained & waited while the staff summoned what seemed to be a higher member of staff, who we recognised from our past visits over the years. He came to our table & said "You should of asked to change" I politely replied I had asked staff to change on two occasions! Eventually the chips were taken off the bill, as was the overcharge for the 'takeaway container'. The wooden box containing the revised bill was then thrown, with distain onto our table!!! Sorry to say, it's definately not the Alingui of old - Staff, service or food! My choice, my money & I'll be spending it elsewhere, in future.More

Worst experience ever in a restaurant in Torrevieja. I’ll never visit this place again and strongly advise everyone else to ignore this place. The waiter was ignorant rude and unprofessional the whole visit and tried to push me to pay here ekstra tips. Normally I...ALWAYS pay an extra til to the waiter but with here behavior there is no chance in hell I would pay anything extra. The food is mediocre. Nothing more nothing less. Trust me STAY AWAY.More

We enjoyed several family lunches here while staying in Torrevieja. The menu del dia, 3 courses for €10, was an absolute bargain. All courses consisted of generous portions and were beautifully presented. We marvelled at the choice and quality on offer on our first visit...and went back several times. It was always busy and the glorious weather meant we were able to eat outside (in November). We'll deinitely go back if we re-visit Torrevieja.More

Went for a three meal menue, and ordered pork medallion as the main course. What we got was a fat pork chop and a even more terrible sweet mushroom sause. When we complained and explained thet a pork medaillon was not near this, the staff...became angry and argued loudly that this was medaillon as they served it in Spain. When we after the main course was served the dessert the waiter almost throw it on the table. Terrible experience, terrible service, terrible staff. Never again. When you see the read chairs outside - please pass and find something else !!!More

Went for lunch today and in general the food was lovely , however my mum had ribs and it was just gristle. She tried to eat it but each mouthful was full of gristle and had to be left half chewed on the side of...her plate. After 3 mouthfuls she looked closely at the remaining piece and you could see the big lines of gristle running through it so she gave up trying to eat it. We advised the waitress when she cleared our plates but she didn’t acknowledge that the meal hadn’t been eaten. When we came to pay we raised it again with the waitress and her response was that she shouldn’t even have tried to eat it! She raised her voice and became aggressive , so much so my mum walked out. We understand not all meat is good and the restaurant wouldn’t have known , but what there is no excuse for is rude staff!!! The billl was then reduced by 2 euros. Needless to say we won’t be going back here.More

Yes, all correct as above. They don't take bookings as they are always busy, particularly in summer time when on occasions, there is a queue.
