Really busy, but I can't see why.

There are 3 of these restaurants all in close proximity to each other and all were very busy when we were in town, although having eaten there I am not sure why. Reasonable fish, but nothing to write home about and pricey for both what you get and the locale. Pleasant enough staff, but given the... read more

This was our only truly disappointing experience of our holiday. This is an enormous seafood restaurant with three separate buildings. We are not great fans of seafood other than fish but we looked forward to some excellent fish here. Unfortunately there were only about three fish dishes on the menu. My swordfish was satisfactory but my wife got a half... More

Look no further, although, there are many great establishments to eat in Puerto this one is one of my Favorites. I had the Surtido de Pescaito Frito(Sardines, Rosado, Calamaritas, Croquetas, Chocos, & Cazon) delicious. Also, had Tapas Bocadito con Patatas, and Pulpo de Gallegos (YUM). My wife and 1 of my kids had Fried fish plate and the other kid... More

I was so happy to discover this restaurant, because I adore seafood. When I saw their shop with various types of prawns and seashells, I was ecstatic rushing to the terrace to find us a seat at the restaurant. To be on the safe side I’ve checked reviews online, and find myself surprised when I saw some negative comments. I... More

It's a chain of restaurants specializing in sea food. On the high side price wise. Food is very good and ample variety.

I have been visiting the restaurant for the past 15 years. The quality and taste is excellent. It took us a while to "understand " how the service of the restaurant works, since we aren't Spanish and we don't speak Spanish. For the best results you should buy boiled shrimps and lobsters then walk across buy some fried fish and... More

I was looking forward to Romarijo as it had been recommended by a friend on a previous visit. "Eating tiny prawns out of a bag in the early evening sunlight off the coast of Andalucia." Well, who's going to argue with that? To my mind, though, you need to do a bit more than that if you want to be... More

Located in the "old town" is Romerijo. Actually there are two of them on each side of the road. In one restaurant you can buy and have your fish boiled. In the other the fish is fried. The quality of the fish is very good. However the service is a bit hit and miss and it is expensive compared to... More
