We stopped for the lunchtime menu, the starter was excellent and the rest of the meal very good too. We did feel the price charged for the wine and water was rather high, and it didn't appear any drink was included in the price for the menu, but overall we enjoyed it. We would visit again.

Great food and service. Prices reasonable, and the quality and value for money outstanding. There is no better experience than sitting in the sunny villages square and whiling away a few hours over tapas, wine, coffees, and liquers. My idea of heaven.o

Beautiful setting and friendly staff. My husband's pizza was good but not the one he ordered. The paella menu was tasty and reasonably priced. Downside was the plaque of flies, they made the dining experience unenjoyable although the place is clean.

We were staying at the Las Dunas campsite, San Pere Pescador, when we visited this restaurant. Our friends, in their early sixties, had walked the three miles to it from the campsite but together we took a taxi which cost 15 Euros each way. Staff at Las Dunas were happy to book the taxi for us. They also booked the... More

This was fine dining at it's best. Rather surprised at previous review about burgers. I wonder if they were in one of the neighbouring restaurants. We were seated and served quickly. Four of us chose warm goats cheese and Brie salad which was dotted with some delicious nuts and fruity bits. Two chose the aubergine and apple stack moussaka. Delicious.... More

Just had tapas which were excellent although choice is mostly fish based, the squid Andalusian style with aioli was the best, but generally all good. Service was a bit hit and miss some waiters excellent some were in a bit of a daze. Excellent location.
