Menu del dia is good value. Not much choice for children. Gets very busy around 2pm, so arrive before then.

We came here for the first time, because of the glowing reviews on TripAdvisor. We don't understand how most reviewers claim this restaurant to be "excellent". It is not bad, but it's not very good either. We ate the menu del dia. The fish dishes were probably frozen food, since they were very bland and watery. The meat with tomato... More

Amazing you get a free tapa of your choice and there is a large selection with every drink you order. Always busy with locals as well as tourists which is always a good sign. Very friendly staff as well.

We quite often pop in here after playing patanque nearby. You can choose a free tapa with whatever drink you have, even a soft drink or a coffee and all the ones I've tried have been lovely. The menu del dia at around €9 for three courses and a drink is superb value for money.

Location doesn't look that great right on the bridge/roundabout...however the quality of the food must have distracted us away from ant traffic noise! I had the most amazing red snapper and king prawn kebab! Portion was enormous for me and I was so sad that I had to leave some.

We came as a group of two familys and were impressed with the "menu of the day" food on offer. As well a a general "Menu del dia" they had ones for the children and vegetarians too, which makes a nice change as often children and vegetarians don't get many options The price and the service was great too and...

Choice of food on menu del dia is enormous. Something for everyone...soups, swordfish and stews. Freshly prepared salads and lots of deserts (if you still have room!). Returned here again this year and staff continue to be welcoming and quick. Children love it here too. Lots of locals eating here as well as tourists. Excellent value for money.
