Although situated on the main tourist street it is worth a visit. Good tasty food in a pleasant atmosphere. Not expensive either. Serves a varied menu but appeared to have a lot of repeat customers.

Carlos is a fantastic host and the food is superb. Can highly recommend the cheese and spinach puffs and the lamb with garlic. Take Carlos's suggestions on wine - he knows his stuff!

Probably our worst experience here. Food took ages, was bland and waiters acted like they couldn't be bothered once you've sat down and ordered your drinks. Our food looked nothing like the pictures on here so maybe they were having a bad day. Wouldn't go...More

Thanks for the comment, I do not know what happened. If you had told us something I like to know to solve at the moment. But I'll see what happened. As you can see our comments are good.

Visited for dinner May 24, 2017. Nice central location, combination of outdoor and indoor tables. Grilled prawns served on a hanging skewer were great, also tasted the chicken breast and rice dish along with their Sangria. Very good and reasonably priced. Recommended for a good...More
