For me this is the best restaurant in Puerto Calero. The service from the head waitress/part owner is second to none. She is very friendly and attentive and makes you feel like you're a good friend. The food is just fantastic. Everything is clearly made...More

Nothing much to say really, apart from the fact that this was probably the best piece of meat I have ever eaten - and I've eaten some! It was a pound of Black Angus sirloin cooked rare, of coutse. It was mightily expensive at €45...More
