Nice food and generous portions but a bit pricey for me.

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... read 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

Pizzas are lovely, salads a nice change from the normal 'spanish' style and pan and ali oli are lovely. Service is always good, and the location is excellent for people watching!

We are in Spain now and have eaten at this restaurant on a number of occasions. The staff are very friendly, the food is good and service is quick. The restaurant is right on the beach so it is really nice to sit and watch the world go by looking out to see with the sun setting. The staff do... More

We had intended to eat in the square but stopped for a coffee while my daughter swam in the sea-and were too lazy to move . Excellent pizza-just as I like it, thin crust and lots of (in my case seafood) topping. Rest of our party of five's meals were also good . Pleasant service . Pity the shoe shop... More

As we strolled down the seafront I fancied a light lunch,we hadnt been in El Velero before but as we were passing it we thought we would give it a try. Its a smart looking restaurant located right on the seafront with smashing views out to sea. The waiter came up and greeted us with a large smile, we ordered... More
