Really excellent restaurant one street back from the beach. Very popular with the locals. The menu del dia was very good value with everything plentiful and tasty – the biggest problem was eating too much in the afternoon and not wanting to do anything for the rest of the day! One word of warning: this is not a tourist trap,... More

Used for ten years to be our favorite place but on a cold Tuesday in December it was a true dissapointment! A poor service + loud and distracting piano music + the dryest linguado you can imagine.

A really good menu del dia with a drink included, great choice of Spanish dishes and great service. If you want to eat at night don't try until after 9 oclock .

We ate a very filling menu del dia here today, 5th November, in the covered terrace. Having eaten many times in Aguilas I can honestly say that this is a very good place for a €10 menu. Each dish was substantial and good quality. My partner ate the mixed grill and I had the pork with Provençal sauce, both substantial... More

Newly refurbished with a nice terrace area enclosed by glass, we had a very nice lunch there last week. It is set one road back from the beach but still has see views from certain seats. Staff were busy and a bit perfunctory but that was OK, food was good and had a great selection. They have upped their game... More

tiburon is a good restaurant and a popular place to eat.But what let it down for me was i had been to the toilet and when i came out the waiter was just finishing using the urinal and didnt bother to wash his hands.If the staff cant be bothered with basic hygene i would rather not eat there.

We visited this restaurant last year and were impressed by the menu, quality of produce and cooking, friendly, efficient staff and the huge portions! We returned again this year and were delighted to find that nothing had changed! We really enjoyed both visits this year and look forward to returning again.

The restaurant has had a complete refit since we visited in 2013. Excellent facilities and service. Menu del dia was 10 euros, and what outstanding value that really is. Great choice on the menu, and once again we could not really fault it. If you have never been here before, thoroughly recommend it. You will neither be disappointed to hungry... More

Following previous reviews decided to visit El Tiburon during our weekend in Aguilas. We sat on the terrace as the interior was booked for a wedding. The weather was unseasonally chilly with a cool wind so we would have preferred an inside table which was not possible. My salad was good and appetising with a varied collection of salad vegetables... More
