We ate in an internal patio which was covered, the space was well ventilated and lit with natural light. We had grilled vegetables with romesco as a starter (delicious) and a lobster paella as the main course which was fantastic. Service was a little slow,...More

Love the rice dishes here and we always go at least once here every holiday. Staff are lovely and attentive. Set back from the sea but, lovely restaurant to sit inside on a cooler evening.

Been visiting this restaurant for many years but this year was real disappointment. Fish dishes were very bland and 16 euros for a small piece of hake, frozen chips and half a small tomato is really poor value. Other hake dishes were watery and bland...More
