“Tremendous Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten in. The location is great, situated in the harbour with outdoor space weather permitting.
We started with the large red prawns which, although expensive, are fantastic. I then had the mero (grouper) which was cooked to perfection and my wife had the rape (monkfish). We both had puddings, also nice and they gave us coffee and licoures on the house. The bill was 150 euro for 2 including a decent bottle of wine and 2 gin and tonics before we ate.
Service was attentive without being overpowering and the staff were friendly.

“Exceptional sea food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2011

Very, very good seafood even for a famous port such as Gijon. The fish dishes are spectacular as are the shellfish dishes. My wife and daughter had the steak and it was great too, very large helpings as well. Great service too and a spectacular location.
What is there not to like???
