First ate here over 10 years ago and food was really good, fresh fish cooked very well.
.
returned to La Herradura for 2 weeks to get some late winter sun and ate there 3 times 1 x lunch and 2 dinners.

Lunch was OK but very few dinners at night, so maybe that was the reason. Shared a fish main course with my wife and fish priced at 50 euros - undercooked, unenjoyable so expensive bill at over 100 euros. Service was good but overall better restaurants around at half the price.

Trading on past reputations ?

This restaurant had very poor food and service. The waiter was clearly overwhelmed with even just a few tables occupied. Shame because the location is outstanding. It is also very expensive.

This was a real disappointment. We ate at several of the beach restaurants and this was by far the worst in terms of both value and food quality. Avoid.

sunny afternoon with a big plate of grilled sea food and a glas of wine looking over the bay... very relaxing and something to dream about chilly days in north europe in october... definitely recommend... so far we did not have the paella, but I have heard it is good... especially sunday lunch I assume...
