The location is lovely. The food was good. The service could be better. What was a shame was the harrasment from a homeless man from England who was asking for money off my husband and swearing in front of the children. The restaurant chose to ignore putting us in an uncomfortable and potentially confrontational situation.

Delicious food all the way from starters to the main course and the coffee. spent 2 hours in the place and was very happy to have eaten our lunch there. Just watch out for the Menu label... Apparently they have menu with minimum order 2 person e.g arroz negro was 14 euro * 2 = 28

I've eaten at El Penon on many occasions, the seafood paella is beautiful and great shared between two. The sangria is a little watery so I was opt for beer or wine instead. Service is usually quick, depending on how busy the resturant is. Best time of day to visit is just before sunset. They have a flamenco dancer and... More

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 waiter as ours seemed to have disappeared!

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
