We've just spent 9 nights at the Isla Y El Mar Hotel just up the road from this bar/restaurant and we're lucky enough to come across it. A family run business with a brother and sister, Darren and Emma, providing a welcoming and pleasant environment. My wife and myself struck up conversations with all the staff who go out of their way to make sure your visit is as enjoyable as possible. We visited nearly every day and particularly enjoyed our lunchtime visits, sitting on the terrace, overlooking the sea, and partaking of good food at reasonable prices. The quantity of food and quality is good. We also had a Sunday roast here and it's usual fare as you'd generally expect when holidaying. There is the usual selection of drinks all at reasonably competitive prices. It's nice to be nice so thanks Darren and Emma and all your staff for making our break very pleasant.

As an example of their customer care, on our last night, a lady customer knocked her drink over, before even taking a drink out of it - Darren came over to help her and replaced her drink free of charge - it's these little things that make that difference. Well done.

Thank 9Tiger

Friendly staff who are fast to help you. Good breakfast taste wise and price. I had a burger here one evening and it was one of the nicest burgers I’ve ever had. They have sports on the screens inside or you can sit outside and look at the sea.

Not the greatest selection of beers, but what they had were very good and it's primarily an eating places anyway. Plenty of large screen TVs to watch the football on and the food was good and first class value for money.Service was prompt and friendly.

The food at The Purple Turtle is lovely and the staff so friendly and helpful. If you like fish and chips then you won't be disappointed here, the Beer battered Cod is delicious and it will fill even the biggest appetite.Good selection to choose from and the breakfast was also delicious....we had it as a brunch and it seen us right through until our evening meal.

Very popular with visitors, fantastic view from terrace. Food well cooked but lacking flavour, very busy breakfast time.
