Great Spanish food.

I have been going to this restaurant since I was 2 years old. Every single time I go there, everything is really just great. They have great grilled prawns.

We had to simple dinner here last night. Oysters and a nice wine and deserts old fashioned and attractive atmosphere. Waiters were a bit sober but very courteous. I would go again.

This charming restaurant has been here for many years. Has an old-fashioned air about it. Service is excellent and the food elegant. Worth a visit.

As recommended, I tried sopa de mariscos verde, langostinos a la plancha al ajo y mejillones al vino blanco. I have to say the taste of langostinos is not so amazing as expected. However, the green seafood soup is indeed delicious and full of rich content, although if there were more soup than seafood I would be more pleased. The... More

Had booked this in advance. Last order was 5pm. It seemed to be full of locals and the food was wonderful. Great prawns in garlic. Waiter also very helpful to us tourists with no Spanish. It was closed on New Years Day or we would have gone back.

Danubio is an old-fashioned restaurant near Alameda. Came here for lunch. The langostinos were fantastic - very well cooked and generous portion size. Also had the set lunch which was great value but its quality was OK at best. If I go again I will simply just go for the langostinos.

For myself I made the wrong choice I went for the Roast Kid Goat, turned out to be very greasy and... More

Danubio was one of my grandfather's favorite restaurants. I remember coming here since I was a young child. So on the nostalgia scale it fares very high! However it is like a one trick pony. The only really great dish are the "Langostinos al mojo de ajo". These are prawns fried with garlic. Simply delicious! Another favorite is the "Sopa... More
