Wonderful Sardines

This is not a posh place, but a lovely restaurant on the beach. The service was excellent, the staff friendly and we saw the fish on display before we chose our meal, so fresh. The sardines were cooked to perfection and for only €8 a fabulously cheap meal.

Could not fault the service and the food was superb. Restaurant is right on the beach at Altura a nd not near Castro Marin.walk along the beach from montegordo to work up your appetite and see the shellfish fishermen at work.

We ate here last weekend and it was perfect!!! The food was delicious, the views were amazing (at the beach)... The only issue, it took almost 2 hours to bring our food.
