If you've ever been to England, there's a chance you may have visited a Cosmos. Cosmos is a buffet which costs half the price per person than it does at 'Restaurant des Stars' (£15.99pp - €32pp), you also get over quadruple the variety of food. It's incredibly underwhelming when you've been to somewhere such as Cosmos and then end up at a place like this for double the price.

We rang earlier in the day to book a table, only to be told it was fully booked for the day. We tried our luck later in the day and were told we could wait in line for 40 minutes and we would be seated, this is what eventually happened. We were pushed by a rude Spanish family in the line which got the meal off to a bad start, we tried not to let it bug us and we moved on. Once we were sat, we didn't receive any drinks until we had to stop a waitress (who didn't speak English) and eventually we ended up with drinks after collecting our food.

The variety of food was extremely poor; salad, very few meats, one variety of pizza, stale bread, soggy pasta and that's really just about it, really. One of us was vegetarian and had such a limited menu, considering the ridiculous price of €32 you'd expect to have some variety of vegetarian food.

The place is so small too, it's smaller than an average McDonalds restaurant and the lines draw around the place blocking your path. Coming to the end of our meal, we noticed that 3/4 of the customers had left and the place was almost empty, so much for being "sold out for the day".

3 adults and 2 young children- lovely food buffet style.
We had to queue, it was chaos but thankfully it only took 15 min to get seated. You go through cashier queue first and use your magic pass to pay and order drinks, the person who sears you at the table takes your drinks receipt to get them for you then you go to the buffet yourself. Drinks are a can of sprite or fuzzy pop or juice. We didn't have anything else. You have to leave the restaurant for the loo/ baby change.
Standard half board- the buffet has salad, meats, cheeses, pizza, some seafood, meatballs, pasta, carvery meats, some veal, mash potato, veggies, a lovely dessert table with cake, cupcakes, and ice cream machine.
We enjoyed and would book again but aiming around 4pm.

Had a buffet lunch here. There was quite a good variety of food available, pizza, pasta, meatballs, salad, chicken, meat, vegetables. All the food I had was tasty. There is also a dessert buffet, had some fantastic desserts available. Closes at 4 though so really can only have lunch here.

We visited this restaurant on our last day and if we had gone before we would of defiantly gone back again. The food was amazing and different to all the other meal voucher dine deals. They had an ice cream machine the only one we had seen and the kids loved it. We booked here for 3 and fount it was the perfect time as it was a late dinner but ideal for tea time so we was able to be longer in the part. There was a lady walking round who we think was the head chef and she was amazing and clear she took pride in her restaurant and was always seen educating the staff in speedy service and was a role model in our polite she was to the customer xxxxx fantastic

I was nervous about going here as I have seen lots of negative reviews. Never have to wait more than 10 mins for a table (even on a Saturday without reserving) and was attended reguarly by very friendly staff This was on the list of my free half board restaurants so decided to give it a go each lunchtime, glad I did! massive choice of food that was hot where required and as much as you could eat. Everything a picky eater could want and nothing more to pay. I ate here every day and never had a complaint about anything. Once you realise that you are not at the Ritz or eating at a Michelin starred restaurant you just fill up!
