Covid 19 Precautions and Procedures

We have made many changes to our restaurant to ensure your safety


We are fortunate in having two very spacious terraces and now have a new layout with a reduced number of tables.

As well as complying with all aspects of Spanish government advice, we have also instituted a thorough review of all our procedures with a view to strengthening our viral security through enhanced cleaning procedures and by reducing contact points to a minimum.  All areas, furniture and items used will be sanitised several times each day and always after guests leave.  In some instances we have had to suspend the use, for example, of condiment sets and will provide alternative single use packages.  Table settings will no longer be laid in advance and the waiting staff will bring cutlery to the table along with the food.  Menus suitably protected and sanitised will be assigned to each table and stay with you for the duration of the meal.  In any event, our menus are shown on both the restaurant website and Facebook, so using the free Wi-Fi can be seen at the table if you prefer.  No guests will be allowed in the bar and social distancing will be enforced with a two metre minimum rule between tables.

Hand sanitisers will be provided and guests asked to use them before entering and leaving the terrace.  Unfortunately we will have to close the children's play room for the time being, and our swing park will only open when Government regulations allow.

Our objective, as always, is to provide a first class dining experience, with views, food and wine to match and we are confident that our new arrangements will give you just that.

Bookings are now necessary due both to regulations and our reduced number of covers.

Spanish Cuisine

Our chefs are constantly revising the menu to incorporate the best of local seasonal produce and aim to make your Spanish dining experience memorable.




We freshly prepare and cook every dish on the premises and try to offer representative dishes from several regions of Spain, using whenever possible organic home-grown produce. The à la carte menu can be seen here.

A children’s menu is available with freshly cooked dishes just like the main menu. There is also a play area adjacent to the terraces and a children’s room inside the restaurant. Highchairs are also available.

Paella: On special occasions we have cooked paella to order for a few guests but never had it on the menu as a regular dish. This is due to the preparation and cooking time. However feedback indicates that lovers of paella would be willing to order when booking a table and we ask you to give us at least 24 hours' notice. This classic dish is available as vegetable, seafood or mixed and cooked for a minimum of two people.

The Cantueso bar is a perfect place to unwind and serves a wide variety of wines and spirits as well as non-alcoholic drinks. As you would expect we offer a well-researched wine list designed to complement the food, and enable you to enjoy some of the many excellent Spanish vintages.

We are pleased to cater for special events such as weddings, birthdays or confirmations and you can reserve a complete terrace for your party, as well as all ten cottages.

Takeaway: Any meal from the menu can be taken away and we find that desserts are often so tempting that people take one home to eat later.
