Stopped here for lunch, it was the perfect October day, 26 degrees and full sun, the setting is lovely overlooking the harbour watching the boats coming in and out. The restaurant was busy and I can see why, the food was very good, the service excellent, the staff were efficent and polite, attentive but nit over the top, and very well priced. We live in the area and not sure why we haven’t been before but we will definitely be back, we enjoyed it very much.

Nice tapas, some good German specialties made by the owners, and a large menu. The restaurant is well placed, accessible and by the sea, the service was ok.

We had lunch here . We were three persons. First we sat down at at table set for five, but we were quite unfriendly required to find another table.

We had :
One bottle of white wine €19.50
One bottle of still water , one half liter €3 which seems very expensive
Two portions of mussels each $17.50
One portion of salmon €17.50
Taste was ok, but not more.

Total €73. This seems quite expensive.

When finished we asked for the check. And nothing happened. We had to go inside to pay.

It is really a shame that the service is so poor here. The view is fantastic

Nice location and decent food, enough you would think for a great dining experience on a warm summer evening. Unfortunately the service was awful. 2 waiters rushing around whilst the pompous and sarcastic owner/manager issued instructions through secret service style ear pieces. Our waiter couldn't take a single order without being interrupted by the instructions in his ear. Our food took over an hour to arrive and they forgot the bread and aioli we had ordered to keep us going. Trying to get anyone's attention to order more drinks or remind them of our bread order was a real challenge. Asked the owner/manager if we could have more drinks and he looked like I had insulted his mother! Don't bother going here unless you are confident the owner/manager will like the look of you and honour you with his hospitality

In the sadness of Porto Colom restaurant's panorama, this is a good choise because the quality of the food is enough high and the price still reasonable. The service was not so professional, but also not terrible. Very good tuna tartare and seabass. Try it.

Sehr geehrter Herr Baldo. Es tut mir leid das ich nicht fuer jeden Tisch einen Kellner stellen kann. Wenn man Urlaub hat sollte man auch ein bischen Zeit, zum Essen gehen mitbringen oder vorher einen Tisch reservieren . Mit freundlichen Gruss U.Kirchhoff
