Good ambiance and excellent selection of tapas. Popular with the locals. Located at the Puertochico area close to the water.

It was probably unrealistic to go to a restaurant that is ranked as #2 on Trip Adviser hoping for an authentic local experience. No doubt this was once a fine local establishment that served great home made food and was a "find" for those who stumbled across it. Now, while it still retains the look and has a reasonable scattering... More

If you go early (by Spanish standards) and off season as we did (8pm in November), you will be sitting amongst other tourists who have read the reviews on trip advisor. This wasn't quite the ambience we were hoping for, although the small bar area did fill up with locals by around 8.30. There are now menus in English, French,... More

We thought this was going to be a gem, and arrived early to guarantee a seat (it does get very busy). We wish we'd missed out on a seat and gone next door. The food was oddly mediocre. The scorpion fish pate was served with cheap & nasty salad cream. The anchovies and roast pepper 'speciality of the house' was... More

Back for our final lunch again before catching the ferry. Always a great way to finish our trip to Spain. Maybe one has to to queue a bit for a table, but it's worth it, their fish is great, the atmosphere tremendous and the staff friendly.

We were looking for authentic Spanish seafood, simple and tasty and received that with great friendly service. The locals go here, so that means the food & prices are what you would hope to get. Enjoy Bar Marucho, we sure did.

Of all the restaurants we visited on our most recent travels to Europe, Bar Marucho might be our favorite. Like many others, I often refer to TripAdvisor recommendations when visiting a new city. Bar Marucho looked okay so we decided to walk there and check it out. We're so glad we did! We arrived very early by Spanish standards, at... More

France- England- Spain and I finally found my perfect restaurant. Recommended to us by our AirBNB host we had a perfect meal in a totally comfortable local place. The waitress cared, the food was amazing and the price was reasonable. The wine was rustic but subtle (their own label). I think I am going to like Spain.

We had the good sense of coming early so we where seated straight away. It soon began to fill up and by the time we left there was a que at the bar and outside of the restaurant.
