We came early on a Tuesday evening and were neither put off by the fridge of meat at the entrance nor the view into the kitchen others have mentioned. We were served quickly and courteously by an older gentleman and ordered some dishes a little different from those on the main drag... My husband had a black pudding starter that... More

Food is good and price too. Service not one of the best. Meat and salmon pretty good. I didn't like the kitchen because looks old and not clean. I am not saying is not clean but just it doesn' have a nice look.

Pleasant atmosphere excellent food and was a welcome find for a lovely meal. Shame this little gem is not so visible down the back street but worth looking for.

We visited this restaurant twice last year, and enjoyed it so much decided to return this year! We were not disappointed. It is a little like sitting in someone's front room to eat. The restaurant was packed, as it was last year. The tables are very close together, but each time we have sat next to couples who are friendly... More

A quiet establishment set back from the front which specialises in Meat dishes and Sea food. It was recommended to us by a guest at our hotel as we rather fancied a good Paella. We weren't disappointed! We pre ordered a Seafood Paella for a Sunday lunch on our final day. At 22 Euros per person it wasn't cheap but... More

Many people walk past this little gem on their way to the more touristy restaurants. It is definitely one of our favourites. The food is delicious- well cooked and presented. The staff are very friendly and take pride in their work. We have eaten there many times and have never had any complaints. A much better dining experience than some... More
