This restaurant is situated in the apartments next to the Spar supermarket. Suitable for families, it has a buffet/serve yourself system, is very reasonably priced and the quality of the food is good. Very busy, there is usually a queue at opening time - 18.30 hrs, as the guests of the Isla Paraiso apartments eat there as part of their package holiday (a lot of the guests are from Germany). Payment for eating at Isla Paraiso is made at the Main Reception of the apartments before going into the restaurant.
