Lovely fish restaurant

Had an excellent fish dinner here up on the roof terrace at sunset. The service was excellent, attentive but not overwhelming and the staff were personable. The food was great, we shared some salt-baked fish which was clearly very fresh.

What a lovely restaurant overlooking a small bay, get a roof terrace table if you can. The food was superb, there was 4 of us and we all had something different. The starters and mains were amazing could not complain about anything. food portions were big price was very reasonable and the staff were very good, an amazing evening.

Open daytime only and closed Mondays, lovely fresh food, well worth a visit, ideally a car is needed as it's a way out of town.

We left our visit to this restaurant until our last night on holiday, and it was excellent, it will be my first restaurant to visit on my next holiday to El Cotillo. The service here is faultless, the staff attentive and friendly. The setting is perfect, overlooking the old harbour. The menu is not extensive, but the quality of the... More

Ordered a Mixed Paella which was quite a large portion. I believe it could feed three or a ravenous two. The staff were nice and attentive. But, may be a bit slow with your requests. The view from the top was quite nice, it was overlooking the old harbour. But be wary, it can be very windy.

it was the best meal of my entire stay on the island. Lovely setting watching the old port.well treated by staff ,being a single woman alone.Beautiful fresh fish. The only disappointment was that they don't do the iced coffees until June. Delicious black seam bream.

I have used this restaurant several times and it never fails to impress. The outside seating area is a must on a nice sunny day...but watch out for those strong rays of sunshine!!! As you can expect for a beach view and sea view location, the place can get super busy, but the staff will always try to get you... More
