Waiter was really impolite. He poured out the wine on my white dress and I didn't get any refound. He just said 'sorry' even when I told that it was expensive dress. I am totally disapointment!

Great place to eat seafood and have a nice glass of wine. Polite service and full of local Spanish people rather than others.

Visited just for a drink, as it was opposite our hotel. The staff were very friendly, and we decided to return for dinner later. The food was excellant my wife ate the sardines with a tomato salad, and I opted for the clams, which melted in the mouth. Will return in the winter, and hopefully they will still be open.... More

I went there a few times, few local friends invited me there. The tapa's they serve when you have a beer are delicious. I had delicious calemares a la plancha. Not too pricy but not cheap either. The locals seem to like it so it's probably good.

The seafood was of excellent qualify and the service... More

We wanted to have a not so very heavy lunch. The waiter apparently did not like our friends to share one meal (which had 350 gram calamares). Wenn asking for the bill it lasted 20 minutes. Then, when we threatened to leave, the same waiter suddenly produced the bill. It contained more the 10% faults (in his favour, of course).... More

We ate here twice whilst staying in the Elba Hotel. The first time we had a whole Seabass, deep fried Anchovies (Boquerones), Langoustines and a house salad. The second we had a Paella, more Boquerones, Calamari and another salad. Both meals were excellent and the Seabass on the first visit was particularly good. It could easily have fed six but... More

Popped in as opposite our hotel. Had the chicken breast and chips. Was ok. Nice that the locals seem to love it here. Can't comment on the fish but everyone seemed to be enjoying it.
