Excellent fish

We had dinner the other evening there, gambas with garlic and a fish , both of excellent quality, we had a bottle of Murietta / Rioja with it. Very good food and the price is ok, more or less Eur 40 per person all included. Easy to find near the shopping center of San Agustin.

I stayed in San Agustin for a few days simply to rest and enjoy the sea and sun at a cheap price. This is the only restaurant I could find in San Agustin and Playa del Ingles that was not an overpriced, noisy and expensive tourist trap. It is simple, unpretentious and clean. I was looking for a quiet restaurant... More

Although I have given this place a poor rating, there were other tables who seemed to be enjoying their meal more so perhaps this is a personal choice or we chose poorly. Was on the hotels recommendation list and I think I will be sticking to trip advisor suggestions from now on. As per other comments, the décor is basic... More

This restaurant was recommended by our 5* hotel in San Agustin, notably for the fish. The decor is tired and in need of attention. It is all very old fashioned. poor quality table cloths, napkins and cutlery. We were not warmly welcomed and barely spoken to by the staff. The waiter said he spoke English but made no effort to...

This is an unpretentious restaurant with the decor and atmosphere of a cantina. It was recommended by a local hotelier for its fish and seafood, and we were glad we went. The lady who looked after us was cheerful and friendly, and she didn't even wince at my appalling Spanish! The fried octopus starter I had was fantastic, drenched in... More

Wide variety of seafood in a genuine milieu. Recommended by locals. I have´t actually been there for the last 5 years though.

Galician seafood-restaurant for gourmets. Fresh fish, extremely good. The interior is clean and nice, but simple. Looks like a local diner, but is all the same a bit on the pricy side. This restaurant is in itself a reason to come back to the island.
