Visited yesterday had tuna. Superb so fresh and beautifully cooked. Good Spanish fish restaurant. Small but definitely worth a visit. Find parking near.

This small restaurant is truly a local gem in this area with so much turisma. The fish was so fresh and well prepared. It appeared to be mostly local. We had the grilled squid, anchovies, tomato salad, potatoes, and sardines. I didn't care much for...More

We were originally searching for a sushi restaurant when we came across this cosy, small, local Spanish restaurant. Great choice of tapas and side dishes. Fish and seafood are fresh and served grilled or fried. Has a local flavour and good prices! Simply excellent! We...More
