Best tuna around

The tasting plate of 4 different types of tuna was delicious - enough for 2 with a starter of grilled langoustines and some fried baby squid. It was also good to be offered rice instead if chips with the children's dish. Desserts of cheesecake and frozen yoghurt with pistachios and apricot sauce... read more

_Location_ On the main street in Tarifa the location can hardly be better. _Service_ Friendly and snappy. Could have been quicker to hand us the bill for which we had to ask several times. _Food_ The tuna sample platter (19€) was both plentiful and very good. We all had it and we were very happy with it.

If you love to eat fresh sea fish you are in the right place. You can choose typical dishes as "Galleca octopus" or usual dishes as "grilled squids". Kind and gentle service. In august is full of people and the service can be a little slow, but not very. Really reccomended.

The food is OK. The roasted octopus was not tender and probably the worst of our entire trip so far (covering lots of good seafood through Portugal and Spain). Half of the over-priced tuna tasting plate was pretty good, whilst the other half was passable. The seafood rice was also uninspired. Service was variable and patchy, ranging from friendly to...

Love this place and the tuna! If possible, get a plate with a mix of different tuna dishes. You will get a great food experience in all the various ways you can prepare the different parts of the tuna. Just amazing!

I come from a fisherman's town and eat fish wherever I travel. This was the best monkfish I have ever tasted. My partner had cod with couscous which was flavoured with cinnamon and raisins which was quite delicious as well. The service was excellent, friendly and some spoke English, which is unique in this part of the world where foreign... More

Nice location, service, cost and food. Food was full if flavor and plentiful. Price was reasonable for the food and drinks. Great people watching while enjoying a meal.

I was just walking around Tarifa (not a hard thing to do since is such a small town) and runned into this nice & cozy little restaurant with outdoor tables and very attentive waiters. At first I wasn't expecting much since is not giving you the air of some sophisticated establishment but to my surprise this restaurant turned to be... More

I had very nice fish but I found the place a little pricey compared to others in Tarifa, probably due to the location on a sort of boardwalk, but one that looks out on a street, rather than the sea. The service was so so: warm and friendly when the manager took charge, stand-offish, got-better-places-to-be like when the waiter was... More
