The restaurant doesn't pretend to be anything it's not, the selection of available fish/seafood is offered at your table, no menus or wine lists are shown so it's a bit pot luck, but the fish is fresh, and there is a limited selection of wine, The man who runs it has been using the same format for over twenty years...

This place does not have a menu, instead they present you a plate of all the fish they offer. It's all fresh. ordered the paella and tuna salad, huge portions, great value, great taste.

Great food, brilliantly cooked and very fresh! I loved this place and the whole, basic approach. I popped in during the day, when it's closed, to ask to see a menu and was sent away with the words - 'we serve fresh local fish - that's it!' We ate here twice, and absolutely enjoyed both times. Large portions - you... More

Don't expect anything special with regard to the decor but the fish is fresh and tasty. Good value for money, English not great but nonetheless friendly. Worth a visit.

This is a great family run fish restaurant. There are no menus, instead the owner brings a big plate full of freshly caught fish to choose from. The portions were huge and totally delicious. My only complaint would be that we chose a starter which made us too full to finish our main course. Very good value for money.

Simple but great. If you love fresh fish go, if you don't stay away. A must for us when we go to Caleta, tables and chairs basic, only one white wine but the fish is just wonderful and perfectly cooked. Can't understand the whinging about no menu, it says outside fresh fish caught today so obviously it depends what they've... More

Forget plastic menus and just be guided across the fresh fish available on that day. Just choose how want it cooked! One of the best calamares a la plancha (grilled calamari) I have ever eaten! We liked it so much that we visited this place twice within a few evenings. By far the best restaurant in Caleta de Fuste.

Don't be put off by the cheap café tablecloths, plastic patio furniture and the absence of a menu. This place is a must for fish lovers. It does have a traditional feel inside where the waiter brings you a board full of the catch of the day to choose from. You gat a well cooked whole fish with the Canarian... More

We had not been in this restaurant for 20 years boy how daft was that. Still the same as it was, same man, same tray with fish, same result first class. Some people found it off putting that there was no menu with prices so presumed it would be expensive but it's not, two people eating seafood until you were... More

You expect more from a offshore restaurant. No menu is provided, only the guy with a dish full of fish pointing what fish can offer you, so you don't know how much is what... We ordered mussels (7,75€), unpronouncable fish for two (27,50€), white house wine (12,75€), house dessert (3,75€) and coffee (2,0€). Quality of food regular and price maybe... More
