Thanks a lot for the special service you brought us. It was a perfect and tasty meal. I really enjoyed the Albacore and goat cheese salad and the desserts also!

We had our last meal of our holiday here, and it was my husband's birthday, and I must say it was certainly not the best meal of our stay (we were in Cosgaya and Colombres previously where we had several fantastic meals). And the main issue was the price that was asked for an "ok" meal, but certainly not up... More

This is one of a number of seafood restaurants on a little parade, with outdoor as well as indoor eating areas. There was a long list of pinchos and raciones of fish and shellfish dishes on offer. We decided to eat in the elegant dining room at the rear of the building. The food was excellent, from the delicious amuse... More

Thanks to La Darsena for sitting me on a busy night without a reservation. Sadly, I was ignored for a lot of the time for bigger tables. There’s not a lot of options in Suances (or within driving distance) for dinner, most of them looked like generically suitable restaurants. La Darsena’s food was good--the knock is due to the service... More

Ate here twice while staying in Suances. Very friendly and helpful - we only called in for a drink having just arrived in the town but they were so welcoming we decided to have lunch, which was an excellent 3 course meal for 13 euros, well presented and including a drink and bread. Good location next to el Concha beach.

We were told by our landlady to eat here. It was well worth the walk down from the town. The best fish I have eaten. We did return later in the week only to be told the restaurant did not open till 9 pm. So we ate some where else.

So, this place came highly recommended, but in our experience it was only average. We had a tartare entree and this was very good, the main of lobster paella was only average with the crust missing and the lobster over cooked. Our waiter was very grumpy at our Spanish even though we tried hard (we are rubbish though so I... More
