Very good Seafood restaurant

This restaurant has always been known for its fresh fish and seafood, had a makeover a few years ago and is probably the safest bet in Estepona for fish. The service is good and the menu has all the traditional dishes plus some more.

La Rada provides superb seafood plus a professional service. Though the location is not its greatest strength, the terrace is somehow charming for an early bird lunch/dinner. I highly recommend the tuna which is magnificent and very well cooked. By far, the most trustworthy seafood restaurant in Estepona .

We tried several times, but this location and the neighboring Tapas Bar (und same management) was closed, but at the end of our stay we got lucky. The asparagus and tuna with avocado was gear, but the pate de Foie Gras was just superb - and the dessert , Apple with goat cheese tart, just outstanding. The wine was amazing... More

La Rada is a long established fish restaurant in Estepona, on the road facing Estepona beach and the sea with views towards Gibraltar and Africa. It is overrated now, the prices not particularly inexpensive, the wines priced at average levels (i.e. 400% mark up) but the fish is very good, provided you stick to whole fish. Avoid at all costs...

Whenever in Estepona/Marbella, this is definitely our favourite for laid-back seafood lunches - the freshest of local fish & crustacea and succulent 'Arozzes' & Paellas. Our typical choice: Coquinas (small sweet mussels), Pulpo a la Gallega, Boquerones al limon (open face fresh anchovy with lime), Calamaritos fritos y a la plancha (baby calamari fried and/or grilled), Urta al horno (lemon...

Good Estepona restaurant. Being able to sit outside is nice and bizarrely not that common in a place with a wonderfully temperate climate. The waiters can be a bit snooty but the fish is very fresh and very good and wine not unreasonable. They have some silly wine but very good basics like Albariño which although far from top of...

The €12 daily menu is extensive and the portions generous. We had the fish soup and dorada for starter and main courses. All was well cooked and delicious. The mango mousse was excellent as was the coconut cake. You can choose a coffee instead of dessert. The seating outside gets noise from the main raid but the view of the... More

We ate here on our first night in Estepona mainly because it was the only restaurant that was open at the time. The food was good, especially the fish stew I had, monk fish cooked very well. The service was good, however we were the only customers in at the time. For me the only down side was the main... More

I must say that I was a bit skeptical after reading the review, but 3 of our group of 7 stumbled on this restaurant one day. They raved about it. On and on about the food, service, view - everything. So, for our last dinner before leaving the area, 5 of us went back. I must say, the service was... More
