We decided to try this out as seemed a very good deal. However we were extremely disappointed at the lack of tomato and topping on the pizza. The pizzas were mostly base and crust.

Tuesdays have a great offer € 5 for any pizza, get there early though as it gets very busy, situated in the Marina with great views and the staff are friendly and efficient.

We called in for lunch as the were busy our meal was some what slow coming out, when it did come it was worth the wait we really enjoyed it. The down side was the bottle of house wine was over priced for the quality, with a nicer wine the meal would have been perfect!

All our food is prepared fresh for each order and as many of our dishes as possible are made on the premises. We offer a range of tapas comprising typical Spanish and contemporary British dishes. We also offer a range of light bites (sandwiches/wraps, omelettes, baked potatoes) and more substantial snacks such as fish & chips, etc. We also have a menu of the day offer from 8.70€ for 2 courses (3rd course available) and offer a bottle of house wine/cava with this deal for just 5.50€ Our opening hours vary by season which reflects how busy it is in our locality and demand for our services. We highly recommend booking for larger parties and for all tables during peak season evenings (june-sept). We also host private parties and would be very pleased to discuss your requirements.
