Whatever I've eaten there it is always fresh well cooked and delicious. This visit we had salad to start followed by grilled fish and chicken curry (for... More

This restaurant has regular clientele who are on first name terms with the staff. It is friendly efficiently run and the food is superb. The sole (Lenguada) is the best to be had in the area. The mixed fish platter is big enough to share and the lamb is sumptuous. Hardly visible from the road, but once you have found... More

Very nice restaurant. You will pass it very easily, but when you found it, you will always return. Very nice fresh fish, nice sea food, every Thursday Flamengo night.

Once again we visited La Viuda, one of the best restaurants in the area. The food, service and ambiance are just as great as our first visit some 10 years ago. Nothing to beat it for fish. Very reasonable priced, a nice menu but fish is their thing. The sole is to die for!?

Two years since our last visit to this restaurant and if anything, it's better. A lovely lunch and a nice bottle of wine, only spoiled by a table of eight Germans (sorry Germany) who shouted throughput our meal. The staff were attentive and numerous. Good value, lovely view...👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

Once again we visited our old favorite restaurant. It's the only fish restaurant where I actually enjoy fish. My favorite is sole. It is prepared without a lot of fanfare which results in a light flavor. Thursday night is flamingo night

I have reviewed this restaurant a couple of years ago and can confirm it is still as good as ever. The food is Mediterranean and Spanish. The fish, in particular the Sole is the best you can get. Simply cooked on the grill without trimmings but excellent taste and quality. You buy the Sole by weight but don't let that... More

Good international food, family run, freindly service, The restraurant is right on the sea front, if you book first you can reserve a table next to the sea front, They speak enough English to be unterstood, No menu of the day but the prices are quite reasonable.

We have dined here on a number of occasions and plan to go again next week with family. Always has been an enjoyable dining experience. Good range of excellent dishes, popular with all local nationalities. Service pleasant and courteous. Outside tables have a view over the sea. Week end booking advisable.
