Ate dinner here recently. The menu is predominantly fish with limited meat choices, but the fish is wonderful. We had prawns pil pil, seafood risotto and seafood croquettes to start and all dishes were wonderful. For mains we had the John Dory, sole menuiere, swordfish and fried fish - all were wonderful and were generous portions. Lovely atmosphere, great location... More

Great find just off the promenade. Beautiful interior. Staff brings out the raw whole fish for you to select from before ordering and artfully debones the fish for you. Pricey but great service and unique décor.

I went with friends to this restaurant, it has great views out to sea ,the sea food is fantastic. If fact everything everybody ordered (party of 4 ) was very good. A lot of Spanish business people eat here at lunch time and it can get very busy. Service Was also excellent.

Service exactly as we asked and very attentive. Restuarant very attractive and beautifully positioned right on the beach, couldn't have been better. The chef should be congratulated on his presentation and... More

This restaurant has been significantly extended since last year, and with its smart white seating and all-glass walls is certainly the best looking place on the Rada Beach seafront. We knew that they had large lobsters in the tank from our visit last year. This year we were determined to have one! We booked ahead to make sure we got... More

Refused coffee at 3.30pm even though there was only one table out of 10 being occupied. Food looked amazing and was considering eating there in evening but not now.

We had an excellent lunch here. The sea front setting is marvellous and the fish was excellent. One of the best octopus I have ever eaten.
