Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We had just arrived and needed lunch so we went here. I had salmon with leek sauce and my husband had lamb chops. I think his was better than mine, but both were good.

Service very crisp and efficient. Wide choice of fish dishes,I have tried many of these over the last few years,especially good lubina,dorado,sole and salmon. Decor is a bit dull and uninteresting. I did notice some other restaurant owners eating there one evening! Food and service are great,setting is poor

We stopped in here for Tapas and drinks last night. We stop in at many restaurants that have outside seating. Most is covered by awnings erected on metal poles with different styles of gas heaters, fairly plain but efficient. Mar de Plata has wood paneling covering the points where poles would be. It has paddle fans with lights. The gas... More

We have been visiting this lovely Resturant for many years as a family and have never had a bad meal. The food is well cooked and very tasty. Their pate and hot rolls served before a main course is to die for and if you don't fancy a starter this makes a great alternative. The roasted lamb shank is a... More

For the past 15 years or so Mar de Plata was according to many of the locals thought to be the best restaurant in Almuneca, a good steak or freshly caught fish accompanied by overcooked broad beans, carrots and the obligatory patata fratas with efficient and buisiness like service from the mature male waiters. The Desserts were served literally within... More

Seriously, I've been there every year once or twice for 28 years. They have the tastier Gambas ever! With a hint of salt, it melts in you mouth! A bit expensive though, it's the most expensive plate on the menu! The rest is also really good, with fresh fish and seafood! Love it there, one of my favorite restaurants in... More
