We had a wonderful meal here and we thought quite good value despite seeing it was considered expensive in guide books we thought it was fine. It was a very stormy evening so we had to sit in but by the windows. We shared a speacil paella and it was jam packed with fish and truly Spanish. Nice staff but... More

Visited while staying on vacation. Great location on the beach but the food was rather salty but hey may just be personal taste.

Had skewer of chargrilled sardines here for just 6 euro. Very tasty! The dishes mainly come without sides, not really clear from the menu, but we had plenty of food anyway. Friendly staff

we were a party of four adults and two young children who wanted to sit by the rolling sea, enjoy the view and share a couple of drinks. Not too much to ask we thought!! Alas after being seated and drinks order taken and served we were thereafter ignored. Unlike the locals we were not served any tapas with our... More

I have eaten here a few times, the latest in August 2015. Sit on a table on the beach in the summer, or inside in the winter, great views either way. All the usual Andalucian meat and fish dishes on offer, I usually go for something freshly grilled on the beach in the upturned fishing boat, typical of chiringitos or... More

No better way to enjoy Salobrena than to sample the excellent seafood dishes and lovely view of the Mediterranean at the memorable Restaurante El Penon. We chose to eat outside, our table perhaps no more than three feet from the water's edge, watching a scuba diving class a stone's throw away. Enjoyed the food and the beer and vow to... More
