Popped in this place after reading the recent reviews. Staff are nice and friendly Food was ok. A real home cooked feel. But not outstanding in freshness and taste. We opted to have the sharing dish.. Monkfish prawns in rice. Monkfish didn't seem as fresh as we expected soggy in fact. Wine recommended with the dish was exceptional 6/10

One of the best meals we've had in years, chose the rice with monk fish and giant prawns for 2 ( cost11 euros each ). There was enough for about four adults and was beautiful, with other local fish also included. Obviously homemade with no stock cubes ! The restaurant was packed with Spanish, always a good sign. Will definitely... More

We had the wonderful idea to get some water at a grocer´s and ask him for a fish restaurant in Tarifa. I have lived in Spain for a long time but I must say I had never eaten such good fish before. This restaurant is excellent, from the beginning to the end - service, food, casual atmosphere and price. I... More

We shared some croquettes, a salad and then shared a special paella which was supposed to be for two, but they brought a big pot which fed 4 of us and there was still some left over! My friends ordered the fish of the day which was a salmonetta (I think) it looked like a red snapper to me but... More

Our favourite restaurant in Tarifa, in one week we went twice for lunch and once for dinner. We have been going to this casual but brilliant restaurant for over ten years now and its still the place to go for incredibly delicious, fresh tuna, especially the tuna four ways, this dish is out of this world! We tried the lemon... More

Nice green salads and pleasant hot first dishes. The wine and sangria were just fine but the traditional risotto with chicken or seafood was very salted and the portion was really small. .....

My wife and I had lunch here today. We both ordered the fresh fish of the day. Not sure what kind of fish it was, but it tasted very good. Only negatives were that the waiter attempted to charge us for bread that we had turned away and charge our credit card in USD, rather than euros. Otherwise, service was... More

Very good restaurant for fish and seafood in Tarifa. The staff is friendly and really quick to serve the full terasse. You can also find non standards on the menu like fish Arabian style with couscous. They also have an own menu for tuna
