We had many family and friends´lunches here. It is traditional food. Nothing spectacular, a bit over prized but all in all very good. Love the pool area (salt water pool). Paula, who organizes the place is great! A family-run business, Cannot go wrong.

Perfect Lunch location. Overlooking the med in this perfectly placed mainly fish restaurant. However to say it is over priced is an understatement. The food was good, but not that good. So are we going back in a hurry .............. No. There are other perfectly placed restaurants at half the price !

This was our first visiting in Ancla. Our local friends told us that place. If you like fish this is for you. In menu is mainly fish food. Athmosphere is nice and staff are very kind full . Summer time there is pool area in entrance, maybe then it is little noisy.

I like it so much that... More

We love to go to El Ancla in the summer, beautiful setting, very good food, nice to have the choice to eat in the restaurant or at the pool. Spanish ambience. Top. One of the best Chiringuito/ Beach bars in Marbella.

This was one of our favorite fish restaurant around Marbella. The location is perfect directly at the beach. the seating is elegant. But since 1 or 2 years and after it got famous, the owners ( a well known family from San Pedro) rises the prices very high. also the food quality is not so good anymore and all the... More

Visited on three occasions - fresh, light, expertly done food. Great choice of fresh seafood, great setting and styling. Nautical theme running through everything from the decor to staff uniforms. It has a bit of a Miami vibe with a white courtyard and an enormous pool surrounded by palm trees and not another building in sight. The terrace overlooking the... More
