As a Croatian citizen from Dalmatia, standards for a fish restaurant are really hard to reach. In this place, I felt like home. Chubby owner, who is also the cook most of the time, is prepared to suggest you the freshest dish for the day and be assured he's right. Tried a mix paella for two and I would recommend... More

The food in this traditional family-run restaurant is excellent, offering well prepared regional cooking in hearty portions. Service is friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere is relaxed and comforting. On a fine day, the balcony offers views of Catalan Bay.

Fabulous food, fabulous location...only missed five stars due to the squid clearly having been reheated as it was too overdone and difficult to chew. However the sizzling prawns pil pil...5/5 Stars...the prawns in spinach & cream...5/5 stars and the Andalusian gazpacho...delicious! The fresh, warm bread served with creamy butter is amazing. We dined here twice in 3 days...it's that good!

The best restaurant in Gibraltar - located by the beach, great views, great service and best of all amazing food! Reserve a table before hand as its a popular restaurant and tends to be full.Try one of my fav dishes - gambas con espinacas,gambas pil pil and their paella! Reasonably priced and very good quality!👍🏼

Went there for lunch on a Friday noon. Place opens around 13h00. We wanted a light lunch so we tried the John Dory, it was delicious. Staff was cortesious and told us about the menu and the place. Restaurant has a nice view of Catalan Bay and the Mediterranean.
