This is a little out of the way, set back from the road between La Barossa Beach and the little community of Rana Verde, but it is not hard to find and well worth a visit as it is a traditional Spanish restaurant that serves, amongst other things, the most wonderful fish. Above all try the fish cooked in salt.... More

Although somewhat difficult to find, this place is excellent for seafood especially for those looking to try spains famous rice dishes. My personal favourite is "Arroz caldosa con carabineros" which is a saucy version of paella with king red prawns.... def somewhere I would recommend! Apparently this place has been perfecting their rice dishes since 1982!!! 1km (approx) away is... More

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in the area but well worth the experience. If you like paella you have to order in advance for a minimum of four but probably the best paella I have ever had after visiting Spain for more than forty years.

We arrived early and shared the first ten minutes with the staff watching TV. The view of the outfall pipe added to the ambience!! My wife's fish dish was good but my "medium" steak was almost raw and was sent back--TWICE.before I gave up completely. Never again.

Maybe we were just unlucky as we visited on a friday night but the fish menu was very limited. No lobster and the calamari was frozen.

We tried this place and were delighted with the food. We were offered great advice on what to order and they were opened at 7.30pm - probably the earliest out of all the restaurants in the area. Also, as we were there with our 3 year old they promptly prepared her food (delicious) and brought us a starter to keep... More

Good Spanish restaurant serves a mix of Steak and seafood. Ambience has a nautical theme but typically Spanish. Opens at 9pm like all good Spanish restaurants so if you want an early dinenr you will be disappointed. Overall the food is good and the restaurant is worth a visit but there are better traditional Spanish restaurants around albeit they take... More
