Big Al's is a family run restaurant on the Golf Del Sur. Fantastic food, great value for money and warm friendly staff. We have one of the most amazing views on the Golf Del Sur great for special occasions. We are always very busy so please reserve a table if you would like to dine with us. You can eat inside or if you prefer you are more than welcome to eat on our outdoor terrace. Hopefully we will see you soon.
