We often have a drink or snack here while our dog is groomed in the parlour along the way. The lunches there are huge and excellent value. It is busy at lunchtime with locals enjoying their lunch break or just out for lunch with the family. It is clearly filled with a regular clientèle, but has ample room for large... More

TIP: Either choose your food from the menu... More

Very dated décor. We enjoyed the menu del dia during the week but wouldn't come here for a special occasion. We had good service but there were not many diners at the time we went.

Average meal, crappy service as there are too many tables for just a few waiters, and really noisy due to the Size, you had to shout to get your order accross. Been here many times as it's convenient location wise for my family but wouldn't have high expectations - expect average!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our spanish friends and was a very pleasant experience for us. great food, great service, wonderful atmosphere especially when they are hosting a communion party. We have visited several times and it is always good.

Despite having visited Los Chavos on several occasions I have only just discovered that their excellent menu de dia is not available to fiesta days. The a la carte menu offers almost exactly the same dishes but with bigger portions and rather bigger prices. I recommend NOT visiting on public holidays

Local restaurant that has a fantastic menu of the day for 8 euros. The choice is amazing and the portion sizes are huge. Always very busy but the service does not suffer.
