We went there to have dinner and we had a grilled mix and it was just amazing. Lots of variety of meat. The wine really good. The staff amazing. Quality-price really good.

I booked this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and I had been there on previous occasions, I must add my last visit was years ago and I was very impressed. Unfortunately this time the service was somewhat lacking and the steaks we ordered had to be returned to have them cooked in the way we had asked... More

Went here hoping for some local fair as not much else in the area of port des torrent within walking distance. The menu was very limited, grilled meats or paellas in the main. Ordered the fish/shellfish paella which was grossly over-salted, Shellfish was evidently frozen as it tasted dry. Slices of only one type of nondescript chewy fish was in... More

We arrived at the restaurant around 8.30pm without a booking, which on reflection was a bit silly as there was 14 of us. However this did not pose a problem and a table out the back of the main restaurant was made available to us all. Our drinks order was taken really quickly and baskets of breads, olives and Alioli...
