“Wish I had walked on by.........”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The setting attracted us, it really is beautiful.
We ordered a salad starter followed by some chicken fajitas.
And we waited and waited- a couple sat near to us, they seemed to know the waiter,
Probably regulars, and we waited- and waited. The regulars had their more complex
Starters, followed shortly after by their mains, more wine sir? Water perhaps? Etc etc
Meanwhile the only other table to be attended, ours was seemingly ignored. I didn't catch
The chaps name so I'll refer to him as "Manuel" ( but less competent). Manuel, came over
"more coffee?" I reminded him that we had been waiting for some time and eventually, over
An hour after we had sat down we were served with BEEF fajitas- send them back I hear you say- nope, having waited for over an hour we decided to just eat - soon after our desert ( salad!) arrived we just laughed. By the time we'd decided to pay there was nobody around- nobody aside from a young lady shuffling cutlery. Fawlty Towers? No, worse much worse- I wish I had walked on.by.............never, ever again. If you re interested in cheap food and beer, "fill your boots" if you enjoy a modicum of service and getting what you ask for and in the correct order then forget it.

“Lunch by the Water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Stopped here for a cold beer and a spot of lunch. Well the beer did not disappoint with San Miguel at 2 Euros a pint! The food (pizza / Caesar salad) was good quality and reasonably priced. Add in the great view of the wate, comfy seating options with plenty of shade and it all adds up to a very pleasant lunch spot.

Highly recommended and looking forward to returning.

“Favourite breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Poached eggs for E3! You cant beat that in Sotogrande. Plus they are prepared perfectly. Seats are so comfortable, you will want to sit here for hours. We walk our dog along the pier and have some breakfast. During the week you will get a table, but watch out in summer this place is crowded. The perfect place to relax in the afternoon, lots of shade and great beer.
