If I had only visited this restaurant once in our week in Albufiera, it would have got 5 stars and a fantastic review, however, as we had had such a good time, we decided to visit again, this was a mistake. On our first visit everything was spot on and really nice. On the 2nd visit, one wrong meal was... More

Enjoyed a meal in this restaurant. Food was good but should have ordered 2 portions of rice as portions were quite small compared with the main. Staff and service was first class so no complaints there.

The others had Chilli... More

The mixed starter for 2 ( no 21 on menu) was disappointing and overpriced. I have never seen such small ribs, however it was edible but just very bland. The... More

We pushed the boat out at this restaurant as it was our wedding anniversary. We had a deluxe platter with half a dozen different dishes. All of the food was beautifully cooked and presented to the table well by very efficient staff. The interior is very plush being decorated in traditional Chinese fittings and colours. Amazing statues outside also. Not... More
