My dad lives nearby and so we visit here at least once a year. It's by far our favourite restaurant in the area. The food is excellent as is the service and at such a great price. The Sangria ain't bad either. Would certainly recommend that you try this! Great for couples and families. However make sure you book!

The difference between average and very good is missing in this review... we booked early as we had a 4 year old with us however ..there was very little that she could have on the menu so only had chips...thai was nice but not the best we've had.. and indoor staff wanted us out and away to reuse our table.....

Dear Jean R Thank you for taking the time to review us. I'm quite surprised that you thought our children's options limited as we have a children's menu and also offer any dish from the a la carte menú in child size portions. Apologies you found the service too quick ( it's not often I have to apologise for that)...... More

This restaurant has been introduced to us by my sister in law. Each time we come to the area we visit the place. Not only the food is succulent, authentic and tasty but cooked from local fresh ingredients. The service is fantastic too. Vikram is such a lovely person( by the way so are Sunny and the other waiters...) he... More

We ate here whilst on holiday 7th October. We sat inside & whilst the restaurant was full, there was still a warm & cosy atmosphere & the service was attentive despite how busy it was. The waiter explained the coffee machine wasn't working (coffee is included in the set menu), so we were offered an alternative of any drink from... More

We dined regularly in this fine restaurant during a recent visit to Playa Flamenca. Food was consistently good and waiters especially Vikram and Sunny always alert and attentive. Also met Lorraine, the owner, who was extremely helpful. Lemon chicken and lemon steamed sea bass were exceptional. Definitely not to be missed for great food and huge menu. Best in Playa.... More

We've eaten in this restaurant several times recently and never been disappointed. Food and service always exceptional. To my mind, it's the best restaurant on Costa Blanca for food. Menu is huge and very varied plus they will provide food as you want it. Owner Lorraine had tremendous attention to detail and is immensely helpful. Really deserves a Michelin star... More
