“Excellent seafood, friendly service, good value and beautiful location.”
Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

La Gaviota deserves its good reviews. Our party of 8 all enjoyed their food - delicious grilled sole, fantastic mixed seafood as well as steak and grilled lamb. The service could not have been more friendly, the portions were very generous and it proved fantastic value, especially for a table on the beach.

“As a beach restaurant bar should be.”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

La gaviota is the perfect beach bar for an easy uncomplicated lunch which seems to be as popular with the locals as the tourists.

Friendly service, the food is lovely and reasonably priced. (sopa de ajos, 4.50 euro, fritura pescado, 8 euro)
The view from the terrace is gorgeous and there is plenty of parking space around the restaurant.

We can recommend this place and we will definitely come back here.

“Understated but fabulous!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

Two recent visits to this place have proved to be a welcome alternative to the other end of the beach, where we have always eaten. The food was amazing...best sole ever and a good steak. A great lunchtime option, especially if you have children, who can play on the beach, within eyeshot, when they get bored. Friendly service, good wine and a reasonable bill...don't miss this one!

“Friendly Service, Good Food on the Beach”
Reviewed 14 May 2013

The staff are great. The seafood is as fresh as it can get. The dorado was steamed with a little garlic. A great variation. I would like a little more chilli in the gambas pil pil but the garlic was just fine. This was a second visit. Always popular! Sat outside both times.
