Average Food ....long wait

Huge portions of average fish , but you have to wait an incredibly long time. Service does not exist , should have read the other reviews before we went to Tapas. Would we go back , afraid not.

With our feet sunk into the beach sand, we had a feast on delicious calamari and seafood that is so well prepared. There was also succulent tender steak for my non seafood friend who joined us for dinner. The food was very well prepared, tasty, excellent value for money, very large portions and just an awesome place to let your... More

Tapas Beach Restaurant is a relaxed easy going place to eat. Sitting on a bench with feet sunk in the sand feasting on fresh calamari and a cold, crisp wine.... and life doesn't get better! Before desert we ran outside to see an amazing sunset and came back without an eye blinked!

The food was good, however the service needs attention. The people are friendly, but not organized with regards to which table they are waiting on.

We ordered a bottle of wine and placed our dinner order. After we had had half of our bottle of wine and had been waiting... More

I come to visit my family every year and this time we went there for my birthday. It was the worse food!!! Neither of the three steaks were done like we asked. The chips was cold and oily and the fish was way below average. It cost us a lot of money that day and I didn't even want to... More

The atmosphere is perfect, food is great and staff is friendly and helpful. For instance we asked whether we should order a plate for one or for two the waitress recommended: "Don't worry, the plate for one will be enough for you guys". In another restaurant they would suggest us the plate for two in order to make more business... More

Visit their restaurant with family from out of town this holiday season. Service was non-existent and when we informed the owner he was exceptionally rude. We are local and will never advise any visitors to visit this restaurant anymore
