Seafood From The Sea

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... read 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

If you are in El Puerto de Santa Maria you have to go to Romerijo. My favorite is cazon en adobo, in the fescaito frito store. Then you cross the street and buy gambas and sit down for a cold beer and eat them. Heavenly.

The freshest seafood with a great choice available. We had a platter with Lobster, Shrimp, Langoustines, Prawns and Winkles and everything was cooked to perfection and really tasty. To be fair it was expensive compared to every other restaurant food we had encountered in El Puerto de Santa Maria but on the other hand if we had bought it in... More

The seafood is great (even the deep fried must be eaten with pleasure and no guilty) please be aware that invoice can be quite... «heavy»... but it worthes every cent and every Euro!

In English below. Muy decepcionada tras mi visita a Romerijo ayer, soy Gaditana y he comido aqui muchas veces pero lamentablemente ha bajado mucho, ya no se come tan bien como antes y ha subido muchisimo de precio, pagamos 116 euros por dos adultos y dos niños de menos de 5 años y salimos con hambre. Que pena. Very disappointed... More

Huge chain style restaurant concentrating on seafood. All Romerijos are big and impersonal, the sea food is fresh and is prepared with no fuss, just fresh and fried, cooked or a la plancha. Mayo or ketchup is 80 cents extra.. you get the picture it is not an upmarket restaurant but the food is good.

Most local people avoid this place as it caters for tourists. As said in a previous review they own large chunks of el puerto so can afford to do what they do. It's fairly expensive, noisy and crowded in summer and the waiters will not be friendly as they're under pressure. All in all unfortunately el puerto is not a... More
