Went here for a meal early June no menu just a tray of fresh fish to choose your meal from. I had red snapper Mrs had sea bass it was divine and cheap €13-75 for a main and you don't need any more than that. You must give it a try

really good octopus salad and fresh fish, but the paella was too salty and not really appetising. You could choose what fish to eat as the owner brought a tray of fish to the table. After paying the bill, you were always offered a drink on the house.

We had dinner there on Thursday and I have to say fish was absolutely amazing. Fresh, nicely flavoured, simply just the best. Highly recommend.

You choose the fish you want and we asked for Bream and Baby Squid with Salad and Chips. We had two beers and were given a Honey Rum Liqueur with the bill 30Euros. The meal was cooked to perfection and the lady serving was pleasant and helpful. The facilities are basic but more authentic than much of Caleta. If you... More

We had walked past a couple of times and decided we would give the restaurant a try. We went in and was greeted by a very grumpy waitress whose demeanour took on an almost aggressive tone when i dared ask if we could sit at a table other than the one she had offered. Sometimes if a place is busy... More

We visited this restaurant for seafood as recommended by Tripadvisor.. I must say we were totally disappointed.. Sea food was not great at all and the waitress was let´s say not pleasant... I would recommend to go somewhere else... I am doubting Tripadvisor reviews on this restaurant to be honest...

Lovely meal . Pick fish and starter off a platter cooked in minutes delicious. Baby squid starter is enough for 2 people. Starter, 2 mains and bottle of wine about 50€.

I can honestly say I have never tasted fresher or better cooked fish anywhere ever. No frills just honest well cooked food. So pleased this restaurant is still going strong...please don't let the look put you off. Take a detour off the main streets and give it a try.
