Juan Dolio is loaded with Italians so you can expect good Italian food, El Sueno delivers, although I wouldn't call the food spectacular. It has nice outdoor seating with umbrellas and open-air covered seating if it is raining. Service is excellent. Not a bad place to just sit with friends for coffee or drinks too. The Italian owner is often... More

This place is not a pizza place, as quality is no longer competitive VS other new nearby options, so be aware .... "El Concon" would be a good pizza substitute option.

This place has survived for years, as the food (most important) is simply always good! Traditional italian dishes on a beach front (Non Luxurious) spot makes the experience worth while if what you seek is hunger satisfaction

Have eaten here many times. The seafood pasta is always good with the house sauce. Pizza is good when you eat it there but take a way is a waste of money.

Always look forward to my annual visit to El Sueno (over 20 years now) ... My fav dishes have been the lobster ravioli, the calamari with a side of their fabulous house Aioli, the beef carpaccio, the chicken scaloppine in white wine, the grilled lobster... and also the paella at a private event held at El Sueno. The proprietors, Teresa... More
