A great variety of seafood and a great location

At the end of the beautifull promenade in the old port you´ll find this nicely situated restaurant at the seashore. You can eat here all sorts of fresh fish for a reasonable price. The outdoor seating is great although in de beginning of march it can be a bit chilly. Service is good. We both had... read more

The setting is nice, a terraced area overlooking the beach, the food was good - I would say the portions were far too big but this is a better thing than being too small of course! The staff were polite. I would happily eat here again but it wouldn't be my first or second choice.

I can't rave about this place. Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you order moules marinieres you'd expect the classic white wine, cream and garlic version, wouldn't you? The sauce was made with peppers - lots of them - enough to set your mouth on fire. The waitress couldn't have cared less when I mentioned it.

This genuine fish and seafood restaurant is really worth a visit. Next to the Atlantic ocean with seats both indoors and outdoors you can always find a suitable table. The waiter was very welcoming and the service was perfect all through the dinner. A warm roll was served with a tasty dip together with the wine. We ordered sole meuniere... More

We visited the restaurant on a very busy Sunday lunchtime. It was packed both inside and outside and we had to wait about fifteen minutes for a table. The restaurant was busy, and a buzz with conversation giving it a great atmosphere. The service was efficient, friendly and attentive particularly as the staff were so busy. There was an excellent...

Loved the position, looking up along the gorgeous beach and views over the sea. Good seating outside and inside. Vast selection of fresh fish, good portions and authentic feel.

The most commonly ordered restaurant dish in Morro Jable has to be the local fish, plainly served. All of the local restaurants will offer this option. This is served in either of two ways: one with garlic and the other without. I would recommend that you try it without initially, as I find that the strong flavour of garlic is... More

Ate here twice. Good fresh fish. Sole a bit overcooked. Papas arugadas not very wrinkled but good flavour! Prawns and garlic good and plentiful. Service good.
