We ate here on 29th Aug, our last dinner in Argeles before going home. We were looking forward to some lovely Spanish food. What a disappointment it was, more a disaster!

El Tchinga is beautifully situated on a terrace overlooking the sea in Argeles-sur-mer. We sat outside and had a large bowl of mussels each and a bottle of wine. They serve pizzas, crepes, seafood, and grilled food plus an oyster bar. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and finished up with excellent icecream.
