“Don't miss these”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

As you visiting Almunecar, don't miss these place. One of the best seafood in town in my opinion. I would strongly recommend to check it if you're interested in some national dishes, not tapas, for sure :) service at high level, but desserts were ordinary, unfortunately. Anyway , it deserve four stars for seafood menu and good service.

“Simply Excellent”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

This is THE restaurant to visit if you're in Almuñecar. Extremely popular with locals and tourists alike, this is the sort of restaurant where service excels, the type where waiters expertly de-bone your fish right in front of your eyes, and treat you courteously and with that friendly formality you expect from a "nice" restaurant. The food? Absolutely sublime...no question about it! It is slightly dearer than your average run of the mill seafront restaurant but it certainly deserves the marginally higher prices. The menu is traditional but with a lovely twist. Definitely not to be missed.

“Excellence”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Just finishing my languado in my local fish restaurant and noted it's 9th position on the Almunecar restaurant list. Thoroughly justified. Never had less than an excellent meal at very competitive prices. It is my first choice fish restaurant in town and if you follow my advice and try it you will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful fish restaurant”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

To echo other reviews - the salt baked fish is wonderful and for non fish lovers the lamb is superb. This is our favourite restaurant for a special night out. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

“A restaurant where you get to meet your fish”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

For more than 29 years this classy seafood restaurant has maintained very high standards. The quality is superb. They will often bring the fish to your table on a bed of ice to get your approval before preparing it. My favourite method at this restaurant is prepared baked in salt. The fish is in effect poached within the hardened coating os a salt paste. Then the case of hardened salt is broken open and the fish is delivered to your plate with French service. The seafood is always fresh. One pays a little more at this restaurant, but the quality and presentation make it well worth the price.
