we went to this restaurant in the expectation of a great meal. the price for the menu del dia was good the service prompt and the ambience convivial. the starters came out one of us had " arroz a la cubana" and three of us had Salmorejo both were excellent well prepared and presented the tomato sauce on the arroz was exquisite HOWEVER the mains were every bit as bad as the starters were good. I had whole small calamares (not chipirrones which are served ungutted) a la plancha which had not been gutted even the cartilage was left in. and the pork chops were tough and tasteless.
needless to say we didn't go back again.

We had a very good meal here and I can't really add to the positive reviews already provided by other people. I'd strongly recommend this restaurant.

Have just spent a week in Villaricos and ate dinner at the Playa Azul on three evenings. - subsequently to wish we had eaten there every evening!! Once we'd established our willingness to test our (my) limited Spanish we were made to feel very welcome. The decor/layout was attractive and the staff attentive but not intrusive and the food ? Excellent !! Unbelieveable steak, beautifully cooked and presented, tasting - silly word, for food! - divine !! Lamb cutlets - ditto !! - and I quite properly told the Senior waiter/owner (?) - estupendo - to his great pleasure.
We shall visit Villaricos again next year - when we will, very definitely, eat dinner at the Playa Azul every evening.

We visited this restaurant three times last week and the food was delicious. The steak was to die for and the chicken was the best I have tasted for a long time. The service was efficient and friendly and the restaurant was clean and well presented. We think this is the nicest place to eat in the little town of Villaricos. We've promised to go again next time we're in Villarcos.

Visitamos este restaurante tres veces la semana pasada. La comida era deliciosa cada vez y el servicio era eficiente y amable. Creemos que este es el mejor lugar para comer en la pequeña localidad de Villaricos. Nos hemos comprometido a ir allí de nuevo la próxima vez que estemos en Villaricos.

We have eaten twice in this restaurant and I can say the food is tremendous, true Spanish cuisine. There is a great menu del dia and del noche which is great value. Also please attempt to speak a little Spanish as their English is limited, it would be appreciated.

As a British person my only suggestions to the owners if they are interested are they should make the restaurant more inviting by having a menu displayed. Also it is often hard to know if the restaurant is open or not it needs to appear more inviting but once in you will not be disappointed by the food
