Fabulous restaurant!! Friendly staff, excellent food. The special menu that gets you a starter, main, desert, bread, bottled water and a half bottle of wine was good value. If you go for one of the seafood platters get it to share, it's huge!

From the minute we walked in the door until the minute we left everything was exceptional. The two waiters had fantastic English, explaining the menu in detail and attended to our every need. The menu consisted of four courses plus half bottle of wine per person and water for 70 € for two. Each and every course was presented beautifully... More

Went for husbands birthday, chosen because of trip advisor reviews. Approached by a young lady after we had been looking at the menu outside for 5 or so mins, she was very helpful without being at all pushy. The waiter was very good at explaining the different set menus (we went on a Sunday when there is a special rice... More

Ate here as a family one midweek night in October. The welcome and service from John was great throughout, looking after our 5 year old daughter especially well. She was not eating much so John kept her entertained (quiet) with some books and paper. For starters the wife had what I believe was a catalunyan pizza, and I had the... More

I am a fussy eater so although I could see the set menu was good value I worried about the options available..I was wrong! The options were fantastic, even for someone like myself.
