“Excellent”
Reviewed 30 October 2012

I have visited Mar de Plata many times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. Pedro went to great lengths to source a lobster at short notice for my friends and I to eat on a Monday night and to top it all it was caught in the bay!!!

My last visit to Almunecar was for two weeks and we ate there every other night, I can't praise it highly enough.

“Favourite seafood restaurant in Almunecar”
Reviewed 23 October 2012

The Mar de Plata is located on a side street, a block away from the beach but it is far superior to any of the chiringuitos in town as can be evidenced by the number of Spanish and French who fill the restaurant daily.
Excellent value for lunch, the paella of the day was lobster which was reasonably priced. The almecas (baby clams) are great and salt baked sea bass or gilt head bream are popular options.
Service is friendly and professional, nothing is too much trouble.

“Paella to savour”
Reviewed 28 September 2012

We asked around at a few places for the best restaurant to try the "Spanish Dish", which is of course Paella. We received lots of reccomendations but the one that occurred most often was the Mar de Plata. So we went.
The service was terrific, but then again we arrived early, and so it wasn't hard to make sure we received the fullest of attention.
The paella was fabulous. Offered in black or white versions (squid ink or not) the paella was unctious. Supplied in huge quantities and served at your table by a waiter who just couldn't do enough, We were very pleased with this meal, and our only regret was that we were unable to return to try more from the menu.
Perhaps the ebst reccomendation we can give is the observation that on even the quitest nights this restaurant had a plentiful supply of spanish people all wanting to eat there.

Good food and good service. They are familiar with gluten free options on the menu. Good value. We recommend this place both with and without gluten.
