We stopped into this restaurant which was very busy and the staff were very warm and friendly and quickly found us a table. We wanted some Tapas food and the staff advised on the various dishes available and we opted for 4 different... More

and good quality food made this restaurant a standout for us during our recent holiday - chateaubriand for €14 each! We only had that one night but all the meals we ate at this restaurant were very enjoyable and value for money. A typical bill for four adults, including drinks (and usually two courses each) varied between €55 and €80.... More

Visited in March with a local for a birthday party and loved it, could not eat it all but loved it. Went back with my family in July and had amazing meals there twice. Loved it so much we booked on the spot for New Year's Eve

In our first ten years of visiting Playa Blanca we drove or walked past this restaurant without ever trying it...I think the name put us off! However it is always busy, so we started going there about ten years ago. We could then see why it was so popular. The staff are excellent, efficient and friendly. The menu is extensive... More

Couldn't keep away! By far the best Sanghrai, amazing value for money, good service although busy. Defo... More

One of those gems of a place you find occasionally. Lovely food at a fabulous price. Really busy when we went so it took time to order the food but it was well worth the wait. Waiters were friendly and happy. I shared some tapas with my son and they were really nice. Mixed grill was huge and paella was... More
