Good food, tad expensive

We ate here at the recommendation of some Spanish friends and we weren't disappointed. The food was tasty and we found the service to be very good. The views were spectacular. Only negative was that it was 44 euros each for a set menu (not including tip), which i think is a tad expensive. Don't let... read more

I'm a fussy eater but the food here was truly amazing! We ate from a set menu but everything really was tasty. The beef consume to start with went down a treat coming in from the cold! Great service, lovely views, well decorated.

This place obviously trades on its location. My wife and I went in for a coffee and snack mid afternoon. Completely ignored by the bar staff as were other (potential) customers. A local man arrived who obviously knew the staff and he was served immediately. We had to virtually shout to get the attention of someone. 2 young men tried... More

We ate in the outside restaurant/cafe twice while we were here and were very impressed. We ate inside once and would not go back. Outside tables overlook the amazing beach and water and you can spend many an hour relaxing and people watching here. The drinks and food are very enjoyable and I highly recommend. We went sight seeing in... More

I was not overly impressed with this restaurant. It suffers from the complacency of being situated in an idyllic setting right by the ocean and, though the view is wonderful, the food is horrifically overpriced and the service was terrible. The staff were so rude, even after we ordered everything in quite reasonable, but obviously not acceptable, Spanish. The food... More

Food is ok with extended menu. Also special menus with all included. The view day or night is beautiful and some what romantic. The name of this resturant is perfect as it is in the center of one of God's beautiful creations "La Concha"

La Perla has a beach side bar which is offers a terrific view and lovely drinks. It also has tapas meals however we decided to eat in the Restaurant which was a bit "fancy Pants". The staff were not so pleasant - obviously bothered by our total lack of spanish - fair enough! We ate as a group of 6... More

La Perla has a fancy inside restaurant and also a separate outside cafe. This cafe has a great view and it also sells some fantastic burgers. The burger, fries and mohito combination was a real winner with my group. I have eaten a lot of burgers in my time and I know a good burger when I see it, eat... More
