We have been here numerous times. We love their pulpo from the grill and the delicious steak. The paella is filled with seafood. They have a great wine selection. Although our Spanish is appalling, the staff always makes it work.

Typical Spanish restaurant with a great choice of fish dishes and also succulent steaks. The service is excellent and all staff speak some English. Adequate wine list and the house red & white are reasonable quality. Cater very well with children and is considered a family restaurant. Lovely view of the small beach below the cliffs.

We had a grilled seafood platter, grilled Sardines, patatas bravas and drinks. Food was good, amongst the best meals we had in the area, fish and seafood were great. Service ok, never really courteous tbh, not sure if that's just the region but other than Enrique 's no one really bothered to engage guests. It's beautifully appointed and like all... More

We have eaten here several times over the past few years. It's location is fantastic. Good traditional Spanish food. It's a bit tucked away but well with the search!
