First impression is of a nice little restaurant. But the nice stops there. Owners seems not to have picked up any catering skills during the years. Little has changed since I was there quite some time ago. Finding a table is hard, so reservation is recommended even though sounds strange for a street food restaurant. The menu is a strange...

This derogatory comment purely based on insult is once again a good example of the total dominance this forum gives to people who think they are kitchen chefs and therefore subsequently ventilate there uncontrollable opinion on the Internet. We as restaurant holders have to swallow it and can only helplessly watch how total incompetent strangers destroy our good name without... More

We ate here twice while staying in the area, service was excellent and food delicious and reasonably priced, very impressed. The lady that served us even remembered what drinks we preferred on our second visit, we will definitely return when we are in the area again.

Unfortunately we didn't get to try it. After being wilfully ignored when trying to ask if we needed to be seated inside or just sit anywhere we did the latter and sat down. It was a good ten minutes before someone came over and, without a word, literally slapped the menus down onto the neighbouring table. Dreadful attitude, frankly, and... More

If you like a good pizza with an original italian thin bottom El Carpenta is the place to be. If you are a vegetarian you can get huge salads here and plenty of other dishes are on the menu and all for a very good price. So if you are in the Costa Almeria area drive to Agua Amarga and... More

A simple little restaurant in the heart of Agua Amarga - Dutch owned - and serving a delightful menu including home made pizza (lovely thin bases) and lots of fresh vegetarian options with gorgeous salads. Plenty of meat options too. Huge portions. The only negative point on our second visit was that there were not enough staff and the service... More

I was very pleased with the excellent service that I received and this together with the quality of the food I would certainly recommend this small but cosy restaurant. Its located a stones throw from the lovely beach in agua armaga.

we love Spain, but as vegetarians its hard to find a nice meal. In Agua Amarga we found ourselves lucky to find this little family business thats serves not only home made pizza's and fajitas but terrific vegetarian food as well. It has a slight arabic twist and is just lovely. Try the falafel! Their salads are huge and packed... More

Found this restaurant by accident as we wandered the streets of Agua Amarga looking for dinner. As other reviewers state, the food is delicious, really large portions and very reasonably priced. We had the calazone which had a delicious homemade tomato sauce. The salad was huge and very tasty. Loved the music playing on the walls. One waitress who was... More
