Expensive icecream

We just wanted some dessert. When we told that to the waiters, it felt like they lost a little interest. But it became better. The icecream was very good - very expensive though. Don't buy "normal" icecream though. Apparently it's cheaper if you choose something fancy. Visit this place for the view... read more

Called in for dinner as this was the only eating place without someone outside trying to pull you in! Great table overlooking the beach, good for people watching as well. Looks like it would be a good venue for coffee\beer mid morning. I have eaten too many steaks this week so went for seafood. Decided to go retro & started... More

Went here a few times last week and love its location.We were disappointed with the lack of happy atmosphere there .It is a great loss that Manuel from Seville and another really good and animated waiter had left .They were not only efficient and professional but also fun and always chatted to us however busy . The service last week... More

This restaurant is located on the las Vistas beach and not in the place indicated by the Tripadvisor map! We arrived at the place on monday evening and we were advised (as response to my question) that the best day for fresh seafood is wednesday. So, we returned on wednesday night for dinner. The menucard is rather long but ask... More

Our 2nd visit here the first for lunch this time for an evening meal. On both occasions we were made to feel very welcome by the attentive staff - enjoyed our pizza we had over lunch - great value for money and decided to go for the Argentinian Skewer for dinner and wasn't disappointed. My wife had the grilled prawns... More

Allways used this café for coffee with super views. This time the weather was good at nght so tried a meal in outside. It is a fish restaurant but menu highlighted Lasagne. We chose this with red wine what a mistake. Only miniscule meat within creamy pasta. difficult to eat or later digest. Complaint to manager produced little response. We... More

I can't speak for the other reviewers who ordered chicken/pizza but my wife and I are pescatorians and primarily have seafood. We were exploring the restaurants down the seafront and were starting to lose hope that we might find a place that did not do touristy food. It was thus a very pleasant surprise stumbling upon La Barca as the... More

Even though it is so close to the beach it serves good food. For lunch it was a perfect choice. There were several things on the menu they didn't have available which was a minus. Nice fish display and view of the kitchen which seemed more professional than others on the beach.
