Four of us ate here on Tuesday evening.
We ordered starters of mussels and prawn pil pil which took ages to arrive - we had virtually finished a bottle of wine when they did- we had to ask for bread ( again)
Quality was fine but not as good as other chiringuitos and the portions were small.
The mains of steak and swordfish were served 40 mins after the starter - other diners appeared to be sitting without food. Maybe the kitchen had a problem - we asked the waiter - he just shrugged. Cost was about 3 or 4 euros per dish more than other places. Not a good night and we won't be returning

I love this place,
I have read other reviews condemning the service, and albeit on both visits I have experienced sometime slow service but never rude, I simply put this down to a laid back culture rather than deliberately slacking
Food great, view beautiful….Everything I want for a family holiday evening meal

Pricewise …. When feeding a family of 4 nothing is cheap, but I never departed feeling fleeced ..

Love it !

Have come here year after year and the food is always lovely. The owner is an animated and friendly man who makes you feel very welcome. The food is lovely and i recommend the fried squid rings and the fillet steak (with peppercorn sauce). Definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Its right on the beach too :)

Food generally to a high standard. But left a bit wanting on service quality. Reactive service and always seeking waiter not good. Long wait for icecream dessert from the menu, only to be belatedly told 15 mins later that they had run out?. No kids menu. Disappointing more so perhaps given Owners went out of their way on our 1st visit a few years ago to be attentive and make us (and especially kids) feel so welcome. Worth another visit though to support this family run business. Ideal setting on the beach.

Taken some time since we have been home to review our holiday meals but having been here many times we were not disappointed, we tried a different meal and had the fish special and for someone who struggles with eating fish as I think its bland I was very impressed and would recommend the fish here.
Great service and friendly welcome as usual.
Highly recommend the food, setting, location and history if you take the time to ask.
