We wanted to have lunch in this shoreline restaurant but staff attitude left us walking away and would advise others to do the same. Great location, bad attitude.

Disappointment doesn't begin to explain. So here we are October 31st, and we understand it is the end of the season. BUT we rock up, take a seat and wait for 10 minutes. Request a menu and are pointed to a pile of menus on the adjacent table. Not a great start ! Another 10 minutes and we make a... More

I had high hopes for the restaurant on looking at the food menu but it failed to deliver in many ways. We had to ask twice for the drinks menu and having managed to get a drinks menu no-one took our order so I went to the bar and ordered myself. There were no bread or olives to graze on... More

Really dramatic . The turbot was large and only 16€ and the girls all had Dorada ( golden sea bream) fabulous... More

We enjoyed both lunch and dinner at this wonderful spot. The fish was delicious. The portions were plenty large so you will not go away hungry. The views are magnificent from the beach side deck but it does get a little chilly when the late afternoon winds come up. Staff was very efficient and friendly. Don't forget to ask for... More

We feared the worst as this is a large restaurant with magnificent views but was not overly busy. The service was certainly lack lustre but the fish was really excellent very fresh and not expensive. Probably more atmospheric for lunch.

I had the Dorada two nights in a row. It was simply the best and freshest fish I had eaten in some time. Simply grilled with a portion of salad and some chips it was a filling meal accompanied by the 'house red' it was an excellent dinner. We chose the house desserts rather than the commerically prepared sweets and... More

This is the type of restaurant I always try to avoid when I go on holiday but I guess you never know until you try. Every town has one like it. It's the sort of place where tourists who don't know any better frequent and locals who know better avoid. It's in a great location but because of this they... More

I don't like to get personal when writing reviews as everyone can have a bad experience at even the best restaurants so I'll say it how it is and you can be the judge. Arrived, greeted and seated at table no problem. From there it went down hill. Had no service and had to ask for everything. Waited 15 mins... More
