Not fancy - just good fresh food overlooking the beach

Stopped for an early lunch on a sunny Saturday. Glad we didn't leave it later as the people just kept on coming. We were seated outside on the terrace overlooking the beach which was a pleasant place to be. As for the food, the fish, in which they specialise, was obviously very fresh and my... read more

We came here again with local friends and neighbours after a 2 year abstinence due to bad hygiene practice by staff, this time the dirty habits of old had been resolved When we approached the door and speaking English we were told there were no tables available even though there were less than half of the restruante tables being used,...

First visited to Botavara on 20th December 2014. We were attracted to the fact that we could sit and enjoy our meal sitting outside almost on the beach in the sun. We ordered Gambas a la Plancha to start and followed with Pez Espalda [Sword Fish] and Salmonete [Baby Red Mullet] and a bottle of rose wine. The meals were... More

food is good, it is a very popular place to eat both with tourists and locals, so probably best to get there before the rush hour of 2pm. There own special dessert is to die for!

Very much enjoyed our dinner here, opted for the mixed paella & we were not disappointed. Delicious food, great service & a beachside table made for a superb evening :)

Our party of 5 arrived outside and were seated almost right away- the waiters were very helpful & friendly to us Americans on the Spanish coast. The waitress was very happy & patient- we ordered Gazpacho (delicious!) and perfect on this hot beach day. Although we ate inside, there was a cool breeze flowing thru the restaurant. We drank fresh,... More

The service is second to none, the food was excellent for all 8 in our party... the seafood was superb & the wine list accommodating for most tastes. Our lunch lasted 3-4hrs so that has to tell you something ! Location fantastic right at... More

This busy beach-side restaurant can always be relied on for good food, wine and service. Always very busy so if possible try and book a table (bookings only accepted for inside) otherwise you may have to wait for a long time. Popular with both Spanish and tourists. Highly recommendable.
