The Shoko is for sure a nice place to stay. Although we had no chance to test the food of the location (it was a party with drinks only) we really enjoyed the time here.
The sea-side terrace is outstanding and even in february you can easily sit outside and enjoy your drink.
Really an excpetional party location.
I should start off by saying the food here is quite good and the location is beautiful. Apart from that the terrible service and the plastic dropper left in our food just made for an unpleasant experience.
If you spend much time in Spain, you kind of get used to very, um...relaxed (slow) service. This was so much worse. After waiting about 20 minutes just to have our order taken (the 4 different menus handed over at once are irritating, can't they just consolidate into one, maybe one separate one for drinks/wine list?) our food arrives. Starter and main. All at once.
Servers remove the lids off our entrees and I ask if they can put them back on because they arrived at the same time as out first course. Waitress then says to me "oh you didn't want everything at the same time?"
I speak fluent Castilian. No, we did not want all our food jammed into this tiny table. And I'm not really fond of hot food going cold, so at least keep the lid on my main when you make that kind of mistake so I don't eat a cold main while I'm having my first course.
I respond to this by asking the server "the starters are meant to come out first, correct?" She sheepishly answered yes.
Mains are covered, taken away. I tried calling after to repeat I just wanted it covered while I ate the starter but nope, walked away. Might have been the lunchtime techno, or just another example of crap service.
So we're tucking into our starter, and there's a plastic dropper half full of an orangey sauce in my dinner companion's ceviche.
I call one of the two servers attending us over and ask "what is this?" she smiles like everything's just fine and responds "it's a vinaigrette for the ceviche". Ok, but why is it in the dish still? "It's a vinaigrette for the ceviche." Ok, whatever.
We're still eating our first courses when someone I suppose was the manager came over and asked us if we were ready for our mains yet. Since we were still only about halfway through our first course and our food wasn't shrouded in a giant curtain I'm not sure why he asked. Finally the mains came 15 minutes later.
No, we didn't want dessert, we just wanted to leave. When we got the bill not only were we overcharged for my first drink, no one, including the "manager" came to apologize for the poor service or offer something for it.
I'm guessing maybe the kitchen was backed up. They were fairly busy that afternoon. But the servers and manager handled the FOH terribly too, which made for an unpleasant lunch experience.
Shame too. The food was pretty good. Even the vinaigrette on the ceviche. Just leave the dropper out of my plate next time.
Impressiv Interior and nice bathrooms. But overprized and too many tourist. There are no selection at the door. 80% guys and 20% annoyed women at 2:30 AM. According to my best friend -" A dick parade "
music was horrible. Its just techno all night so if u are a fan, check it out.
Its a non threatening place :) great location.
Nothing super spectacular, yet, with a few drinks and good company it should work out just fine...
ps : lots of little kids (they look like highschoolers/freshman in collegE)
DON'T COME HERE. While we were waiting for our friend to come out of the bathroom, near the entrance, a bouncer started yelling at us and shoving us. They ended up shoving two girl up against a wall. One got a serious concussion and the other was physical injured. The management had no sympathy because "plenty of stupid Americans will wander in." Please save yourself the trouble and go somewhere else.
