We went to the restaurant for breakfast initially, whilst attending the market. We were suitably impressed by their breakfast (not a traditional full english, but amazing anyway!)... and what a welcome we received. A family business: we were welcomed with open arms. They remembered the name of our 8 month old son from that morning and could not do enough... More

We've been coming here for 20 years - our first visit was outstanding and we just kept going back and back! First on on our own and then when we had our children and with family and friends. José and Sue are the nicest and most welcoming restaurateurs ever - not to mention how funny José is!! We visit several... More

Had an excellent meal with family. Was able to half and half my pizza when I couldn't decide! Fresh dough and delicious toppings. They knew the menu well and were happy to give opinions on the choices. The chocolate mousse desert was delicious too, very light.

La Farfalla offers excellent Italian food, reasonably priced and all served with a smile. It's been a while since I was last here but we went again tonight and it was as good as ever. The pizzas are just excellent and the family team never fails to look after its guests. I'd recommend the pizza Diavola and the chocolate mousse... More

My wife and I usually eat there at least four times during a two-week holiday and we have always been more than satisfied. The service is very efficient and really friendly and the food is wonderful.

Have visited this resort for a number of years and walked past this restaurant frequently but have never gone in until this year. Wish I had visited sooner, very welcoming, Jose the owner could not do enough. He winced when I said I wanted my steak well done but it was served up exactly how I wanted it. Highly recommended

Just returned from annual holiday and visited Jose and Susan on 2 occasions, both times greeted warmly and friendly. The food, cooked by their son, is always perfect and to a very high standard. The service is never rushed so it can be enjoyed at your pace. For the quality of the food the price is very good. Brilliant place... More
