Good Seafood

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

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

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

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
