Great fish at good prices

Fresh tasty fish at great prices. Loved the sardines and the boquerones en vinagre (vinegar marinated anchovies). Meat was good too. Extremely friendly service. Will come back often.

After walking by at start due to my fiancé being a bit weary of location and heading down the front of boulevard to look at other restrersunts I'm so glad I talked her into going back, I'm always keen to eat where the locals are eating as usually means it's good, the front was more commercialised and this was a...

In common with other restaurants in this area, the address and map location don't always match up. The restaurant I'm reviewing sits on the marina in Cabo de Palos, not far from the Miramar. Our party of five, including 3 children, were seated at an outside table without a reservation on a seemingly busy evening in August. It's a nice... More

We have been quite a few times. The views are stunning. We have not ate dinner there, we had had snacks. We go for the fantastic Cocktails and the coffee. It is the perfect end to a day around the Puerto. Drink a Cocktail and watch the sunset.

More understated than La Tana or Miramar, and with arguably a less attractive setting, for us this restaurant was unbeatable (and considerably cheaper). Service was impeccable, cuisine the best we found (esp if you accepted their suggestions for fish), staff really friendly: nothing was too much trouble. No little niggles about charging for bread; best of all, an excellent house... More

Drive up to the highest point in Puerto Mazarron and enjoy the amazing views whilst enjoying a cold drink or ice cream and watch the world go around
