It's been 2 years since we last had dinner here and it is as good as ever. From the welcoming waiter to the excellent Spanish home cooking, it doesn't disappoint. Great value too.

This is my favourite restaurant in Playa Blanca. Good Spanish cooking in a small, intimate restaurant with a twist on slightly out of the ordinary, (suckling pig, goat's liver & rabbit - all excellent). The fillet steak here is also very good. I can highly...More
