I cannot understand why this restaurant is not in the top 5. I eat here regularly and it is always my restaurant of choice if I want to impress. There is not a better restaurant on the Costa del Sol!

We always dine here, not only for the great food prepared by Carl, the goats cheese salad with walnuts was excellent but the fantastic friendly service from Shelley.

Love The Restaurant, love Carl and Shelly.....The Sunday Roasts are just like your Mum's with the best Yorkshires and great Veg and lashings of gravy. The menu has a really good selection and everything is well cooked in front of you very eyes. All very entertaining as well as tasty and well priced. We'll be back next time we're in... More
