Nicest restaurant in the marina end of town

We visited twice during our recent stay and enjoyed both occasions. Very friendly and efficient service and good food. The french onion soup in particular was excellent. The last restaurant you come to on the front before the main breakwater.

Such a lovely restaurant really takes some beating. Have eaten there many many times. Always busy which speaks for itself. The warmest of welcomes from Marcus & Monica [and Mrs Marcus] who all work so hard. Varied menu with daily specials - if swordfish is on then go for that just out of this world. Crepes are a speciality here... More

A number of guests at our hotel had told us how good the Petite Marmite was so we tried it a lunch time for a snack and a drink that were good. For our last night we booked an inside table for dinner. We had French onion soup, roast suckling pig and crepe suzette all washed down by a nice... More

This restaurant is at the end of the harbour past all the rest of the shops. we had a very pleasant meal but due to the bad weather we were perhaps not in the best of moods.The staff were very attentive and the food was freshly cooked apart from the onion soup that we both started with. It was tasty... More

We visited on a number of occasions for coffee and a bite to eat. The staff are particularly friendly and it has really good free wi-fi.

Very welcoming, quick service and very moderate prices. Try the chorizo sausages if you like spicy food or the omelettes or pancakes if that is your choice. We used it as a tapas bar and it gets very crowded on market days. Also good for a mid morning coffee. Most of the tables are outside so I would think it... More

Had lunch at this place and ordered a grilled sirloin steak. Unfortunately half the steak was inedible as well as impossible to cut with an arguably sharp steak knife. However, it was not all bad as my girlfriend reported that the cannelloni was nice, so mixed results overall.

Went there the first night of our break, as we had enjoyed it there the year before. From the moment I was greeted by name as I entered the restaurant area, by Cristina, (after a year's absence), I knew the night would go well. We were made very welcome, not only by Cristina, but also by the wonderful Monica &... More

we had steaks, which were nicely done, as we expected. we were able to walk in and get a table without booking, but wouldn't recommend this in the high season. very reasonably priced. menu was pretty standard for the restaurants in the marina (they all pretty much do the same thing)

This is our favourite restaurant when we stay in Playa Blanca. It has very quaint, traditional decor and we always eat outside on the little plaza as there is a beautiful view of the port. Food is beautiful and service is so friendly and helpful. You really feel like you're a million miles from home. Would really recommend!
