  • No still closed up. If I get a chance I will check the door for notice of re-opening if any!

  • Yes I agree .Those were the days. I have only been coming to Gigantes for 8 years and for a few years a visit to Sinatras was always a special treat. Even the waiters were nice. One in particular who we thought looked a bit like Robson Green.I wonder what happened to all of them!  :( :(

  • I remember before it was Sinatras - I think it was called Aioli (now I am showing my age) - does anyone remember it then.  The Asturias was another fab place as well, an excellent place to eat, however last time I went it was awful.

  • No Alilouise, 'tis a long way from Sunset. You need to go right down into Los Gigs and then wander off into the back streets near the church.

  • Went to the restaurant what was Sinatra'b4s last night.  I had chataubriand, which was cooked to perfection, my partner had the Pork in Port Wine with Apple Sauce, which was excellent, as was the accompanie vegetables, worth a try.

  • Sinatra's used to be very good, Chateubriand was excellant .. but they went downhill in my esteem when I was told they had switched off the coffee machine at 10pm! And not just on one occasion ..  that was when it had been take over by Little Italy.

  • This is not specifically about Sinatra's but the village eateries in general.

    As residents we rarely eat in the "village", as we find standards generally mediocre and prices high> OK, so El Pescador continue to provide a lively atmosphere at reasonable prices but we find places "out of town" much better.  If our moderator will allow me I'll mention a few, in no particular order, Juan Lanas in Arena, El Guanche in Cuevo del Polvo, Nova Bleue near Colonial Park, The Sports and Beach Club at San Francisco, the tried and tested El Meson (but don't let your bill get out of hand in all the excitement!), Fettucines in dog s*** alley, Puerto Santiago, Bar Caldera opposite the new police station, El Lupulo in Alcala, Tasca Llano in Alcala, further afield you  have Tijarafe in Playa de San Juan, Tirajales in Fonsalia and then there's Las Goteras in Tejina, probaly the best value meat on the west coast.

  • I have to agree that some of the restauraunts in the villagae are overpriced.The last time we found a couple offering good value three course for 10 euros in playa de la arena well worth the journey.

  • I remember the ali oli it was great.  I always wondered what happenend to the owners.   Sinatra's was good years ago but was always overpriced.  We used to sit at Luis bar and watch everybody stagger down the steps from Sinatras.  That was my only grip with the place they always had you in the bar area before so you were well on by the time you came out.  Good night though.   Arriving out Fri so will give the new place a look over and report back.  Yes garlic bread will be having a few nights out in you fav. places.
