I visited this restaurant as I was looking for some good Spanish buffet. But I regret it now. Food was awful. I could hardly eat anything. After spending around 50 Euros, we all went home hungry 😡

Excellent value for money and great food in this place and a huge variety, there is something for anybodys taste, great range of desserts as well, grilled food is made fresh in front of you so no dried out meat like many other buffet places

We found this place a bit pricey at £12.95 per head plus rather expensive drinks, £ 13.50 for a bottle of wine retailing at E4.50 in the local supermarket. The food was OK and I suppose I woulod recommend it if you cannot decide where to go as it is mixed.

Cold food and not much variety. Best thing about it is the choice of ice cream. Don't bother if you want a good meal.

I would never come back again, food is awful, bland, poor quality and hardly any variety. Hardly anything is labelled, the staff aren't very helpful either. It might be cheap but not worth it

Plenty to chose from and was warm enough for us. We had mussels, prawns, lasagne, dumplings, stew, paella beef, lots of salad, fruit, salmon, whitefish, steak, sausage then dessert. Its not everywhere that has that variety at this price. The downsides were too much salt in the lasagne and some of the food did seem to lie for a while... More

The first restaurant we choose after 13 years absence we had a look at Las Camelias. It still is a good buffetrestaurant were we ate 2 times this week. For our family (2 adults and 2 children 14/16) we had enough choice to have a great meal. Absolute USP is the grill were you can let your fish and/or meat... More

I have always been a big fan of this buffet. In fact I have been coming here years, and one of the things that has always set it apart is the staff. They are always friendly, and remember you. Well things have changed staff saw me arrive, sit down. Not so much as an acknowledgement. In fact the staff member... More

I visited this place after a recommendation from a friend. However when I arrived the waiter showed me to a table and all he said was Drink? So I asked for my drink and it was placed down on the table. He then left me. No mention of how the buffet worked bearing in mind there was a chef behind... More

This buffet should be on kitchen nightmares as it is the most vile,unhygienic food I have ever tasted. Insects roam the food that has been presented day after day. Drinks are heavily overpriced and staff barely give you a smile. We picked prawns as it looked the most decent, but how we were wrong. They had no flavour, no seasoning... More
