Spanish Tapas

Great seafront location although a bit windy, the atmosphere was lively. We ordered four starters which were all huge, especially the calamari in light batter with a fruit chutney. A bit pricey but we could have fed four people easily so good value for the money. Would recommend a visit.

Have eaten there twice and very generous servings at reasonable price with wine. Seating is outside (often smokers there) or inside with windows on the ocean. Swordfish steak was size of both my hands and 5 grilled langoustines, with heads and tail were 15 cm long. Always served with Canarian Potatoes, salad and warm bread rolls and sauces to dip....

Although this is a fish restaurant it serves a delicious green salad, you get a massive portion and is on the sea front. The waiters and waitreses are very kind and friendly. You get a free bread basket and is fresh and delicious. A must try is the goats cheese starter. The carbonara tagliatelli could feed 2 as the prortion... More

The location of this place is good. The menu and the food is nothing special. Stock standard menu which is almost the same as the nearby restaurants. Food quality/preparation is very average. Portions are excessively big (seems they are making up for the lack of creativity).

This was our third visit here, and one of our preferred restaurants along the sea front. The position is good, with great views across the sea (although the waves were unusually rough that day). We had two of their salads, and the portions were huge! We didn't need anything else to eat until the evening. The food is not gourmet,... More

We went here after searching for a good paella restaurant in the area. My boyfriend has enjoyed paella on Spain before, I have not. He said this one was amazing! I thought it was ok, but I haven't got anything to compare it to. We got 2 big prawns, clams, mussels, squid and fish in there all for 28 euros.... More

Wanted a fish dish...Giant prawns, as it happens...langoustines to you and me. Very tasty...quickly prepared with a "no nonsense" approach to the serving.

Huge portitions of not so tasty food. At least with the dishes we had: squid legs were deep fried and did not have any taste. Mussels in garlic had garlic only on the menu. The shrimp coctail was a little better but not brilliiant.
