Absolutely terrible. Awful food, absolutely terrible service, don't come here ever. This is a seriously bad venue for groups

Went for a evening meal and they apologized as the meals would take a little longer because they were a chef down, no problem because we weren't in a hurry. Good service from the staff and the meals were tasty, hot and well presented. The provedore is looking a little tired and the tables were bare with nothing on them,... More

We had a relaxing Sunday lunch which was very pleasant sitting outside watching the world go by. The waitress was friendly and the food good. We opted for a couple of tapas dishes - nacho's, cumin flatbread & salt/pepper squid which were all good. Would visit again.

We went for lunch on a cool Saturday afternoon and were the only customers mid afternoon. Service was a bit slow but the food came with generous portions. Well priced. Every one in our party were very happy with what we'd ordered. Would be lovely if the weather had been good enough to sit outside and enjoy the marina view.

Somewhat hidden by their neighbouring competition. However they do a nice line of bar snacks (love their salt and pepper squid) and have a reasonable drinks menu (Tiger beer for me). Don't have the ambiance of other in the area and is basically plain and casual. But worth a visit and is comfortable for smaller groups

I love the food and atmosphere at Providore....but the service system and the service is appalling. Needs a different way to take orders and the owner needs to be less rude. I have persevered, giving the benefit of the doubt time and time again but the last incidence of rudeness (despite an apologetic friand) was the final straw. Won't be... More

I loved the Grab One price. What great value. My pork belly tapa was delicious. My husband's gluten free squid was well cooked however lacked any sort of seasoning I guess due to the gluten free request.

The evening before cyclone Pam was due so it was warm and calm ideal for the al fresco dining set up with Marina view. Mediterranean breads and oil and seafood. A bit noisy inside but we were outside. Very satisfactory. Will return soon - left my keys there!

We were able to eat at an outside table and had a great view of the sunset over the marina. One of our party had fish and chips and was disappointed with it, but the rest of us all enjoyed the food.

Thank nympy
