We visited this restaurant two days in a row (dinner and lunch on different days). The staff is very friendly and extremely professional. The food is traditional and delicious. Be sure to either arrive in time or reserve a table in advance as you’ll find the locals love this place as much as tourists do.

Never got the chance to eat in this restaurant although we’d seen it several times in passing and wanted to try it. When we finally got here one evening, we were told they were full but that people were paying to leave so it would be just a 5 minute wait. There was nowhere designated to wait so we just stood by the fish display cabinet but we had to keep moving because we were constantly getting in the way the servers. After 20 minutes of waiting whilst watching everybody else getting their meals served to them and being totally ignored by all the staff, we got fed up and left as it was getting late and we wanted to eat!!! There are plenty of other restaurants around! They really ought to be more polite and at least come back to us every few minutes and give us an honest answer as to how long we would need to wait.

The food is good and reasonably priced. The service was O.K. but the main issue was the heat in the restaurant, air con is an essential in such a small and compact restaurant. I would not return.

Good afternoon, Mrs. Eviladj.

We thank you for your visit as well as your evaluation on TripAdvisor. it is always good to have feedback from our customers so that we can understand what is right and what we can improve. We were delighted to have enjoyed our food and our service. As for the question you asked about the air conditioning, it was clear that you were distracted and did not notice that our restaurant has an air conditioning system and that it is permanently connected. the high temperatures and humidity of the air that are felt on the island at this time are not easy to bear and even the air conditions are not enough, so you may have thought you did not. On the roof of the restaurant you can check it out.
Hopefully we can re-count on your visit.

Best regards,
Dos Combatentes Restaurant.
