Lovely location, somewhat hidden in the back of the pueblo. Service personel just great, reservation online possible and easy. Dishes originally set up and nicely presented. Quality of the fish and the meat mediocre, smelled quite a bit. Wine list medium. The chef was helping out in the kitchen and the bar, said hello to his friends, but all the other clients where just air. Besides he gave us the impression not to be too happy. We might be wrong, but that's how it seemed to us. Major mistake was, that he talked in a foreign language, how much he wanted to leave the place, unluckily there are other people understanding this language. Hope he finds back to his good food and his creating a great holiday food experience.

We went for dinner there through a friend’s recommendation & it was a deception. We went for an early dinner when the place was not full & still the waiters were not organized. Thrice they came with wrong dishes to our table. They forgot to serve couvert and still wanted to charge it. When we argued the owner (Pau) argued in an arrogant manner. We asked for some extra bread twice and that was charged 3 times instead. Food portions are small as compared to exaggerated pricing of dishes. Hot brownie is served with ice cream on top (not on side) which means you eat it in ice cream soup. NOT RECOMMENDABLE & WASTE OF MONEY.

Hello Ankseh,

First of all, thanks for your time. My name is Alejandra and I am the current owner of the restaurant. As far as I known, you arrived before 21h, then it is normal that you found the waiters organizing the dinner´s service for that day. We have probably different schedules than you, but it does not mean that they were not organized.
Secondly, Pau is one of the most loving waiters and persons of the whole village, as you can read in about 90% of our reviews, so I personally do not believe that he was arrogant with you. I am sorry for our differences, but it is my duty to defend my workers when they deserve it.

Thanks for visiting us.

Lovely little restaurant by the beach with a great menu. Starters were fabulous, tasty and fresh.
Main courses were served around 30 mins apart so sat waiting for everyone else. When husbands fish turned up it was terrible but they handled it very well and were very accommodating. Sadly had to wait a further 30 mins for my daughters main course, she had the steak and when arrived it was delicious. Main waitress is very helpful and think we just hit a very busy evening but the waiters are all over the place so I would suggest each having a set of tables
To work as felt a little swamped at times.

This quirky, fun restaurant is stylish and superb. We had nothing but tuna - pate, candied and braised. So clever and tasty. No wonder all tables were full by the time we left. Don't miss this place when you visit.
