The location is fantastic, but the food was nothing to wright home about! It was almost like is was done in advance - the gambas in garlic was good the garlic bread was the most boring one I have ever had! The staff was kind and polite. The experience was a typical turist experience, and we not go there again... More

Retreated here from the midday sun to enjoy the world going by whilst enjoying a drink. Directly on seafront - literally. Didn't eat but food looked good. Efficient and friendly waiting staff.

Service was poor and staff seemed totalled fed up and couldn't really be bothered with our family. Views are lovely, but food was very average and certainly not worth the prices they charge. Bit of advice, this is the third time we have visited this restaurant (better for lunch) and every time we have had to ask for our change,... More

The location is very lovely, just off the beach. The food was fine and service was very good. My margarita was of the frozen kind, which was upsetting

Sat down and was totally ignored by staff so we walked out. I went back the next day and had a drink at the outside bar and the person who served me was very surly and not friendly at all. Wouldn't go back.

My husband and I have holidayed in Maspalomas for the past 7 years. We have walked by this very busy Beach front restaurant many times, and after looking at the menu we could see why it was so popular. We decided to treat ourselves one day to a snack after a day on the beach. Being lovers of prawns, I... More

This is a nice large and always busy semi outdoor restaurant. The food is always consistent and of good quality. A good compliment of Wines, Spirits and Beers are offered. It's a busy restaurant so service can sometimes be a little slow. This place is right on the beach so if it's ocean dining your looking for please give this... More

Stopped for a relaxing lunch. Service was perfectly ok, grilled sardines with farm bread plus tomato were fresh and very tasty and sangria was excellent. Right on the beach and lovely way to spend 45 mins refuelling. Will probably call again tomorrow
