Lovely setting and wonderful Paella

We've have been coming here to eat for the last 13years. It has changed a lot in that time as 13 years ago it was a very quiet beach restaurant but is now more of a restaurant if you know what I mean?! The beach and area around there has been cleaned up a lot over the years and so... read more

I've read some of the reviews on here saying some not great stuff. This beach restaurant is lays very full so yes, you will wait for a while to be served when it's busy but it's worth the wait- the food is great and the staff are all really nice! I eat here at least once every couple of weeks... More

Sadly my wife and I decided to give this chiringuito another try. This was a mistake, we always felt that it was a little overpriced for what it was, however worse than that, on this occasion the service was abysmal as well. To be fair though, having identified a problem with our order they did waive the cost of one... More

My husband and I held a joint birthday party at El Bombo last night,with around 50 guests, and oh what a fantastic night Reuben and all of his staff gave us. From the canapes and drinks on arrival, to the beautiful 3 course meal. Nothing was too much trouble. The restaurant also accommodated our band without a problem. Thanks again... More

Lovely little beach side cafe. Only had a couple of coffees so cannot say anything about the food, but they were really good coffees and the service very good and price reasonable.

Beautiful position but sadly non existent service! We waited ages for drinks then nearly an hour for our meal. They bought us bread plates but no bread, no further drinks offered then our sides were wrong. Shame as the meal itself when it arrived was delicious. Not sure we would bother again.
