Our main courses, between us were the entrecôte which was excellent, the ribeye for 2 people was very good & the suckling pig was also very good. The... More

I am fascinated by the fact that everyone recommends the suckling pig. It's just pure deep fried cholesterol It's still left the after taste of fat it's disgusting . Then there are two deserts that every one raves about the ravioli yes deep fried again Dough with chocolate in the middle . They obviously have a deep frier and have... More

Although the staff didnt speak great english (Which is fine!) They could not have been more welcoming and warm. We had three courses and all were perfectly presented and delicious. Would highly recommend you visit!

This establishment never fails to amaze me with its quality. the restaurant inside is beautifully appointed. The staff are polite and so inobtrusive one can forget that they are there at all. Well thought out wine list with local and international bins at reasonable prices. And then theres the food!! Fabulous presentation and attention to detail. Not a large menu,... More

The restaurant is near a beach, and a bit upmarket for Spanish restaurants and definitely not catered for tourists. Nonetheless the food is very good. The portions are sometimes large, so sharing is definitely needed. The food is however often made without a lot of vegetables (so for example Juan Mari makes the food taste more fresh). We had a...

Visited with two other couples, one of which had been to the restaurant before. All food well cooked and presented. Not the most inexpensive in the area, but certainly good value.

We were there on a very quiet Tuesday night, having the restaurant almost all to ourselves. The service was very good, with good recommendations on food and wine. And the... More
