If it weren't for the sign, you wouldn't know there was a restaurant here at all. It is well sheltered from the road and traffic noise and it has pleasantly laid out eating areas outside and in. We arrived without booking and were pleased to...More

After reading the reviews and feeling like meat, we drove 40 minutes from Mahon side to have lunch. You can't book as the phone is unanswered. We arrived just before the advertised lunch time of 13.30 and were the first there. They arrived after us...More

Food and service very average. Living in the past with modern day prices. Only main meat dishes. No fish dishes. We would not recommend this place.

Awesome Mahon cheese steaks. These will fill you up. It does however take a little time to get your food. Seating is average, limited indoor and outdoor seating, but you won't be disappointed by the food. The employees are very friendly as well!

Never lost its rustic charm & that's what still appeals. Not the easiest restaurant to book, won't take booking via email or tripadvisor and closed during the day and the answering machine is all Spanish, had to get the hotel reception to book for us....More

Had dinner with the family (including 3 kids under 6), and we all had a lovely dinner. No kids menu, but they easily found food from the adult menu they liked. Steaks amazing. Would highly recommend.
