This was one of two of our favourite restaurants in Playa Blanca and we dined here every other night. Alfonzo is fantastic, friendly, funny, efficient and speaks good English. There are a good choice of starters and everything I tried was very good. The main meals were also great, again lots to choose from and again delicious, the only criticism is the portion size - they are huge. The puddings looked good but no chance - no room! You would need to book if you dine later as it gets very busy.

The food was ok, but we were served by the rudest waiter I have ever come across which completely spoiled the evening
