Good value and great setting

Stopped here for lunch and enjoyed a table overlooking the beach. A wide choice on the menu which suited all of us- omelette, bolognaise, charcoal grilled sardines and fish stew. All very fresh and tasty and good service apart from when we asked for the bill and after 15mins had to ask another... read more

The food was terrible and way too expensive. The First salad they brought for free seemed not to be fresh. The Gazpacho was way too watery and tasteless, the garlic soup was also watery and tasteles, the avocado salad had only few slices, the Tortilla was not even cooked properly , the eggs and potatos were raw! the barbecued octopus...

This restaurant is perched on the rocks with great views especially at evening times when the sunsets can be spectacular. You can't miss this restaurant and to help you find it just look for the boat outside where one of the staff will be barbecuing. It is a great restaurant for fish and they will always have a special of... More

Great restaurant with good shade right on the beach! The staff were brilliant and helpful although we speak Spanish which is always an asset. The food was good but clearly not the cheapest in the area as a premium is charged for the setting which is fabulous. On a holiday certainly worth a visit.

Although we had been to this area before we had never tried this restaurant. We decided to give it a try but would not wish to visit again. The service was very abrupt, the food was more expensive. A waiter eventually came to our table and took our drinks order whilst we studied the menu. He returned with the drinks... More

Pleasant restaurant with very good seafood, much of which you can see being cooked on the boat fire pit outside.

Lovely setting, 1 night we had a table on the beach, another we went inside with view overlooking the sea. Great food on both visits. Speciality is the fish food, we had the salmon, Dorada and Sea bass on our visits, but they bbq squid and sardines on the beach.
