This place offers really nice food - it is well done and tasty. However, the service is very slow. We had to ask for salt and the bill several times

Went here last night and was blown away! Great location right by the sea and we had a wonderful table by the window. The food was out of this world, brilliant modern Spanish cooking, with fresh ingredients and wonderful friendly service...everything was delicious but the pulpo a gallega, little squids stuffed with raisins and pine nuts, braised ox cheek in...

We have visited many times for wine and food and always enjoy our visits. Great location and atmosphere. It stands out from the other restaurants as it offers both an ambiance and a menu that is a little bit different. We were really pleased that they were open in winter when many other bars and restaurants were closed!

The restaurant was almost next door to our hotel so very convenient location for us. Loved the funky seating arrangements sat with our backs to the wall facing in and at the Castle. Great for people watching and food watching. We had a dish of very thinly cut veal that they were promoting that week. It was delicious and a... More

Saw some mixed reviews, but we went here twice for drinks. The waiter was very pleasant, and they had an extensive wine list , but had a lot of diners having full meals but also self service pinchos. Ambiance was good, nice background music.

We visited this restaurant on 5th June and were drawn to it because it appeared to be more modern and uptodate than most Mediterranean restaurants, but more importantly, we liked the description of the tapas shown on the menu. Like the previous reviewer who had the mussels and carrots we also decided to have that dish.It's not for the faint-hearted... More

Rojo Picota is a moden restaurant/wine bar in the heart of the town, looking over the beach. The food has a more modern feel than the traditional spanish menu and everything we had was tasty and well cooked. There is a great atmosphere and the service is fantastic. One of the 'places to be' in the town.
