“Definitely on the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Dined here with friends, who we understand are regulars. Very friendly and attentive staff. Fairly typical Spanish tourist menu for this type of restaurant. Food was hot and well cooked. Swordfish steaks looked particularly appetising. Great chips.

“Gets it right every time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We were part of a group of 30 ish and had a long table set up outside for an afternoon lunch. Food was served with only a few minutes between first and last main course servings. The stars of the show were the huge plates of lemon sole with beautifully cooked entrecote running a close tied second with the gambas pil pil. Nothing is pretentious or too fancy - good dishes lovingly cooked and presented, all with no fuss.
This is the kind of beach-based restaurant where you could arrive for breakfast and stay there for the whole day working through lunch and then dinner!!!

“Great food right on the Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

Great beach located restaurant, offering fantastic seafood at remarkable prices. We dined there today and enjoyed excellent prawns pil pil, angel fish and fantastic fried fish platter (and proper home made chips!!). Limited but excellent value wine list (decent rose at eur10). Perfectly located at the end of the beach for a post meal stroll. Highly recommended.

“Misleading”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

We sought this place out after reading such good reviews and this is not a beach bar but up a side street nowadays! It was empty what more can I say!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Really nice location right on the beach front. Speciality is fish and the gambas pil pil went down a treat with the group I was with. Good value for what you get.
