Very good little restaurant by the sea. I recommend the scallops as well as the fried fish and the grilled fish. Very friendly room staff

Last week I ordered grilled Squid whole ( Calamari), but the waiter bought me grilled Cuttlefish whole (Chocos ). So I said you have bought me Cuttlefish, round shaped. I wanted Squid a long shaped seafood. He said no, that's squid. If you wanted that...long squid you should have ordered Calmari. He said what I had was squid not calamari. He, the owner, said we don't do cuttlefish we only do squid or calamari. We were sat next to a huge sign on his restaurant wall saying baby Cuttlefish. I said see that sign that says cuttlefish, Chocos. He said never heard of it, I sell Squid (cuttlefish) and Calamari !!!More

We visited this restaurant twice while on holiday with a large group of friends. There were 10 of us plus 1 baby so it could be hard to find somewhere to seat all of us. The staff could not have been more accommodating. Moving seats...and tables so we could all sit together and providing a high chair. The waitresses were so friendly and I think my baby fell in love with one waitress in particular! The paella was excellent and we had both the seafood and vegetable paella. We had a couple of vegans in our group and there were options for them. I also tried prawns and squid which were also delicious. I would highly recommend visiting here.More

Tried twice. Both paella and pescados (cernia) are amazing. Prices are just fair. Best place we've found on the island. Highly recommended.

Went there on spec as a group of 10 adults and 1 infant, and they were extremely accommodating. Both their seafood and veggie paella went down well with everyone. Would highly recommend!

My wife and I ate here a couple of times and enjoyed both meals. The first time we had the set lunch menu, which featured soup, fresh fish and dessert for a very modest price. The second time we had the vegetable paella - and...it was delicious.More

Found this place some time ago and thought we’d give it a go. What a miserable lot they are. Hardly cracked a smile. It’s a shame because the food was good. We had a mixed salad to start which was excellent then on to a...Paella. Couldn’t fault them. Locals received a small complementary drink but we didn’t. We just didn’t feel welcome. Not sure if we will be back.More

Dined here this evening. Absolutely disgraceful. The owner didn’t greet us and made us feel unwelcome. First impressions of the place were good besides his attitude. I ordered goat and received a plate of bones. Refer to the attached photos. I told him it was...terrible but surely he could see that when he served it. No reaction from him whatsoever. Please avoid this place.More

Used this restaurant many times in the past including earlier this week still think it's the best in town for fish but went there yesterday had the paella which was excellent shame couldn't say the same about the service went again at lunchtime today for...tapas waiter brought the menu but wouldn't come and take the order so ended up going elsewhere.Was also intending going for a meal tonight as it is our last night in resort so will now be going elsewhere for that to what a shame when one man can spoil your favourite restaurant. Their loss and mine would have spent over a hundred euros there today and eaten some of the best fish still thats lifeMore

Nice small local place. Best time - a bit before sunset! We ordered sea food paella for 2 people and fish soup, price for both - 30 eur. Soup was simple fish broth, hot and tasty. Paella - really good, lots of mussel and shrimps,...but a bit too much stew-like. Next time I'll probably take something with larger percentage of sea food in it. :) All-in-all - great choice for good food and beers with friends at the ocean(!).More
