The best restaurant in Puerto de Mogan

By far the best restaurant in Puerto de Mogan. Visited first on a Sunday afternoon to meet friends, we had chef's salad, croquettes and a fish and seafood paella, all of it was excellent and also very authentic. We came back the following week a couple of times for lunch and it was consistently... read more

We have been holidaying in Puerto de Mogan for many years, and this restaurant is top of our list of eateries. In a nutshell, it offers the best value for money of them all. I find it hard to believe it's relatively low ranking - try getting a table on a Sunday afternoon when all the locals are out and... More

Had an excellent meal at this restaurant last night. As a group of 4 we all had different meals & all enjoyed the well cooked food, delivered by friendly waiters. We had a little trouble finding the place - in the middle of a row of restaurants on the beach front- but our perseverance was well rewarded. I highly recommend... More

We had black pasta with squid ink (Fidegua), the fidegua with vegetables, canarian potatoes, fried fish, bread with tomato and jamon serrano, tuna tartar, garlic shrimp, a couple of dishes more I dont remember and a very nice white wine. Most of it very good. I have had a better tuna tartar, but all in all a very good meal.

Was expecting really great things from the restaurant as it was highly recommended by the owner of the apartment. As I was travelling on my own, I really wanted to try the Paella made with squid ink but it is normally served for a minimum of two people. Asked on my first night if a single portion could be made,... More

Visiting the restaurant with my 9-year old son. I wanted to eat Paella, which was only for 2. The nice waiter made it possible for me to order, only for one, and even opened a bottle of wine, and only charged for what I drank. The food was tasty and service friendly and service minded, thanks to the male waiter.... More

Asbolutely important to book a reservation and to arrive before 7:30PM otherwise you have to wait potentially a long time before first course arrive. We got the carpaccio of fresh gambas; heaven on your plate!!! followed by the fish paella; wooowww what a great food. Coming certainly back!

We read reviews for this restaurant and headed there. It was empty! Nevertheless, we decided to sit down. We had a superb meal. Avocado with prawns and baked goats cheese to start, followed by marinaded tuna and monkfish. All were excellent. The waiters were attentive and while we ate the restaurant began to fill up with Spaniards. A lovely lunch... More

I have been staying in Peurto de Mogan for the last 2 weeks and this was my favorite place to eat. The octopus starter was fantastic and my veal steak brilliant. Slightly quirky service and the place seems to shut a little earlier than most but well worth a visit

I had never tried Paella before and I'm not the biggest fan of fish, but the seafood paella was so delicious, that I would definitely eat it again; shame its not served at home! The waiter/Owner was also very pleasant and friendly, and gave me a cork and bag to put the remainder of my bottle of wine in. worth... More
