WOW Tuna

Best tuna meal ever. Had a tasting of Red Tuna prepared four different ways. No sharing this meal. Out door setting with attentive staff. Pricing was right for our generous meals. Wife had Corvine which was very good. Wish we had more time in the area.

At the recommendation of our hotel, we went for an early afternoon snack at La Pescaderia. We ordered croquettes,and they were very tasty. Our intention was to return with friends in the evening for a full meal, but that will have to wait till another time, as some of others were more interested in something other than fish. The service... More

We ate here on 3 occasions over a month. One really good meal and service. The other two were very very ordinary and the service atrocious. Couldn't put my finger one what it was, because we tried different meals on the menu. From my experience, the seafood pasta was amazing. Spoke with local friends and they told us that Pescaderia...

We ate at La Pescaderia six years ago and remembered what a wonderful meal we had so decided to visit again this trip to southern Spain. We were not disappointed. As it was a beautiful day we ate outside. The seafood is always fresh and beautifully prepared. I had the fried baby squid and my husband had spaghetti with clams... More

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
