This is a really good place for a spot of lunch and a break from the beach. The ambience is relaxed, the waiting staff are really friendly and attentive and the food is very good with generous portions. They cater well for adults and kids (kids menu available). We shared tapas and our teenagers had a pizza and club sandwich... More

Tried "Friends" after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant had good and nice staff, and we were seated quickly. We visited Thursday around 19:30 and while most other restaurants by the beach were half empty, Friends was almost full. I must admit though, that the food wad to special for our needs. A family of five (2+3) we... More

We were two families of altogether 8 persons. The setting on the beach with live music meant a lively atmosphere that suited our party. The tapas was very good. The staff friendly and enthousiastic but quite busy. We will go back.

Comfy, laid-back seats. Great, generous, imaginatively presented tapas. Ideal for people-watching on the beach promenade. Excellent live music on Wednesday evenings. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. We went back for more the next evening! Definitely NOT "a typical tourist trap"! (They are the ones selling ropey paella or all-day british breakfasts ;-) )
