It isn't cheap, but if you are in the area this is far and away the best seafood place, particularly for prawns, lobster etc. The best ones we think are 'cocido' (i.e. cold), and don't forget to have the pimientos. It isn't cheap, but it is full of Spaniards who know good seafood when they see it.

This fish restaurant has the freshest fish in Chiclana. The service is really good, very fast. Wide range of fish dishes. They own 3 restaurants in Chiclana.

Eat here regularly--they catch the fish themselves , so it is always very fresh. Have never had a complaint at this unrated restaurant. Service can be patchy , but otherwise--great!

My Spanish friends wanted to eat here. I thought the food was good, but great. The atmosphere was quite loud and the tables were very close together. It was an enjoyable place for dinner, but for me it was more about the company I was with than the restaurant itself. Worth a visit, but not a must see.

The locals seem to be crazy about this place and for me it is just a low class seafood restaurant with very high prices (for the area). The food is good but there's lot's of places where you can get the same for less. I believe there are two restaurants called Manguita and owned by the same people; one is... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is always great. The shellfish are top quality. I always get gambas and langostinos, the cigalas are great choice too. Almejas al Jimenez are a must. The last time I was there I had the special...arroz con bogavantes and it was one of the best rices I've ever had! Take note... More
