The interior is not as impressive as many other local restaurants but the food is first class. My wife had scallops and I had asparagus we then both had the sole. Shared a dessert and with pre dinner drinks a bottle of wine and ports it only came to 104 euros. Good food and good value.

Our party had a very enjoyable evening with the Family service (chefs and waiters). We selected a variety of main dishes from sea bream, steak and beef stroganoff . All were excellent. We would visit again and you should book in advance

Four of us went for dinner- had not booked but got a table in the restaurant. Menu was good with many choices and very reasonably priced. Food excellent - the sea bass was the largest fillet I've had for a while and very fresh and tasty. House wine good and service excellent.

Went for a evening meal as a family, the restaurant was busy (but not full) and we hadn't booked so go placed by the door in what could only describe as what must have used to been the bar or reception area.

Despite the absence on arrival of my confirmed booking (!) our dinner lived up to our high expectations with all dishes representing quality and in particular my fillet mignon, the price of which should put certain nearby "latin american" establishments to shame, was sublime. They have the right blend of quality, ambience and price here - long may it continue... More

Had an excellent meal. I chose the very reasonably priced pork with prunes and my husband had sea bass tender and tasty. Lovely house wine and friendly and attentive service. Definitely recommend.

We found it by chance and couldn't be happier! The young men who run the restaurant know their job. Very professional though very amiable. The food was very good and well prepared. The restaurant is not on the beach but overlooks a nice garden. Really recommend it!

Thank you Angel and your team. Once again an excellent meal, served well. Your Gvin cocktails are to die for. The ambience in the restaurant is convivial and welcoming. Coupled with the wide choices of food we had a fantastic evening. Thank you for spoiling us

We have been to this restaurant a few times with family and it has always been nice with a patio area outside that is great on a warm evening.
