This is the best menu del dia we've ever had. You have to ask for it , but it's well worth it. Attention to detail in this restaurant is fab. Charming waiters and flavoursome food will keep us returning here. The view is great too. You should book as every table was taken during a busy lunchtime service.

This is in a lovely location, with parking, overlooking the marina. Best to book to get a table with a view. The set menu was excellent but was let down by the under cooked crème brûlée. The sugar was not caramalised at all.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. If you want a front line table overlooking the marina it is necessary to book. However the views are still great if you're in the second line. The service is prompt and staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a very good choice in menu of the day or a la carte.... More

Just returned from a lunch here. What a lovely location overlooking the bay and harbour. The meal was ok, starters and desserts were good. I probably chose the wrong main - salmon in pastry, prawn sauce - sounded delicious but did not taste as good as it sounded. To quote Mary Berry, the pastry had a 'soggy bottom', parts of... More

Visit this restaurant once a year when staying with friends in Busot near El Campello. Usually lucky and get a view overlooking the marina. This time we went on a Saturday night when it was particularly busy (all tables taken). Got our table with the prime view much to the irritation of a number of other customers who had requested...
