Wonderful venue for lunch, with tv for guests who wish to watch sport, like Rugby and Football. Food was excellent, between 4 of us the Lasagna, Perri Perri Chicken and Squid Lagariero were all great. One of the best lunches we have had whilst holidaying...More

Not a bad restaurant for a quick visit. Substantial rather than very tasty. Busy but service was still efficient and fast. Enjoyed our beers and meal

The place is what we can call a tourist trap. Service quality was really poor. They have a guy in his 40s/50s that stays outside who is really rude. He was even arguing with a younger waiter outside the restaurant in front of the customers....More

Ate on the terrace in April 2011 and it was delicious. We shared a seafood rice (25euros) which we were told would feed two people. It was fantastic and easily the best paella we ate on our trip and would feed three people especially if you have bread and a starter. This was the best meal we had during our 3 weeks in Spain and Portugal. One of our party spilt a little sauce on her top and the waiter came to her aid immediately with a spray to fix her blouse. Fantastic service, setting, price. Wish I could eat there again.
