We were out after breakfast on the second day of our trip and after coming from the beach were craving a snack. Out of the blue we saw this little one when reaching our hotel and decided to eat here. To our surprise we ordered the Zinger burger and it was so delicious and juicy that it instantly made our... More

Friendly and welcoming, the kind of plaice(!) where you visit once and leave feeling like you've been going for years. The fish and chips are delicious and all cooked fresh. Beautiful, crisp, golden batter on the fish and a delicious homemade tartar sauce. We've visited twice already this holiday and will be doing so again before we go home. Love... More

Fabulous, it's a "must" if you are in Albuferia. Friendly, fast service and excellent piping hot tasty food. If you want a proper size piece of fish this is the place to go, home made tartar sauce too 5 minutes walk from the strip,

Nice lady, the chips looked good but had an after taste of the fish that had been fried in the same oil. As for the sausages I don't know how to describe them, they tasted like nothing I have ever eaten before..they looked like pork sausages you'd get from a chippy but didn't taste of anything I could describe. Such... More

Decided on a takeaway & an early night after a long days travel, unfortunately we opted for Lara's Plaice! Found the quality of the food to be poor and overpriced compared to what I would pay and receive in my local. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Wife and I ordered fish and chips to take away. Price was high but being on the coast could be easily justified. Well, it certainly wasn't. Both fish and chips extremely dry, strange colour, presumably dirty oil. No lemon or tartar sauce which at this price (8.50€) is shocking. Probably down there with the worst fish and chips I've had,... More

This claims to have English fish and chips but don't be fooled it definately is not ! The fish are cooked in a curiously orange coloured batter and the chips that I was served were nothing more than scraps. The final straw came when my wife saw that the beef burger she had ordered was cooked in a micro wave.... More

travelled to laras especially after reading all the reveiws.all I can say is there must be a new cook. The fish was watery, the batter a strange oily yellow colour and the chips! I never leave chips, but these I could not eat.they were old, not properly cooked and riddled with imperfections. 8 euro - def not worth it sorry.
