Dinner with a view

If you want an entertaining dinner choose for La Guernica. With its terrace right at the boulevard you have nice seaviews and also sight on the local scooterguys doing there wheelies, quite entertaining. Food is good and plenty of choice between à la carte and tapa's. And very friendly staff.

The only negative point I can think of with La Guernica is the ranking on TripAdvisor. I had the pleasure of eating there several times, and the service was always flawless and efficient. The tenderloin on the menue was awsome! I also had tapas there, and they as well were bery good. This, combined with the magnificent view deserves a... More

Wish I had time to try all of the tapas items they had. We went to this restaurant twice on our vacation. The food was fantastic!! Hats off to the chef!! We also had "catch of the day" specials each time which were unbelievable. This place is right on the water front so it is a great place to people... More

This restaurant is located directly at the boulevard and this is one of its charmes. You can see the locals driving their cars or motorcycles parading. But you also can enjoy the Sun going down and perhaps see the green flash. If I eat here I woud recommend their fish dishes. I like the jumbo prawns in Lobstersauce. Or If... More

We are trying to NOT repeat a restaurant during this 14 day trip. La Guernica was day 11 and by far the best. Husband had wahoo in a delicate orange sauce - great piece of wahoo cooked the best he's had all trip (he orders it wherever he finds it on the menu). I had tapas - shrimp in lobster... More

The steak was properly cooked and the peppercorn cream sauce was tasty, and my wife's seafood was fine, but I suffered some intestinal distress immediately after eating, which I would have to attribute to a not so clean plate, glass or implement or poor handling because my wife did not get sick. Probably just my bad luck.

La Guernica was advised to us by someone who had visited a couple of years earlier. When we saw that the menu had dishes like white fish with a red wine sauce we decided to only order starters and order more if the starters would be good. We did not order a main course because the Jumbo shrimp with garlic... More

The view is great - right on the water. The small dish of chips was not refilled and the chips were stale. My food was good (shrimp), the veggies were good, the au gratin potatoes tasted like the kind you get in a box. My friend had ribs and they were not good. All in all, I would not recommend

The Chef had a fish trio that we really enjoyed along with the best potatoes au-gratin I ever ate. Wonder view of the sunset and great staff. Will return next year.

We revisted here after 5 years. It was pretty good years ago and this time we found it to be OK but weren\t too impressed. My wife had wahoo which unfortunately was thin and a bit overcooked/dry. I had the dorado with orange sauce which was quite nice. Each meal was $25. Both of us were unimpressed for the price.... More
