We were in El Velero on october 16, 2015, because the place is nice in front of the beach. After ordering Calamares as Tapas, we had to wait around 15 minutes. What we got for 4.50 Euro was ridiculous: some minuscule rests of calamares, ech not bigger than 1.5 centimeter, sorrounded by a very thick mass of fried panade. The... More

Our party of three had a very nice lunch here. The tapas were good-sized, tasty portions and the burgers were spot-on. Free Wi-Fi. Only downsdie was that the service was a little slow.

El Velero has some very nice dishes, a wide range of options and the portion sizes are quite big. I've had a spaghetti bolognese which I struggled to finish, they absolutely piled up the pasta! I also feel incredibly full after their chicken and chips (plus salad and egg!) dishes, far too much to ever eat a dessert after. The... More

There being 7 of us as a family group are looking for cost and quality which even though was a few €'s more gave us at least quality. Burgers are hand made, fresh pasta and a really good quality paella topped with an outstanding view, English speaking waiters with a sense of humour made a very good experience with no... More

Great location....this bar trades on it's location although the food is average - the friendly staff however make up for this a little and if it's a quick bite rather than a dining experience that you are looking for then El Velero will do fine

Nice décor with a good range of food, set right on the beach. the staff are friendly and helpful. service can be a bit slow in mid summer but still good to chill and people watch with a drink while you wait for the food,.worth a visit especially if you want to eat early.

The positives are the staff and location. The negative, we were served a deep fried cockroach with our chicken fillet. The waiter was very apologetic of course and replaced the dish. I know that that these things can happen however I would expect a discount or free coffee, desert something to make up for the error. Luckily we didn't eat... More
