Beach restaurant located in an unspoiled area of the Almayate Valley. A great variety of flora and fauna surrounds the property making this an oasis to shelter yourself from the sweltering summer heat. It also has a terrace for cooler days when you feel like sunbathing. The kitchen does not close; it specializes in traditional Mediterranean fish dishes and Asian dishes making a perfect fusion that gives this place a unique flavor. Everyday there are new dishes in addition to the menu. There are umbrellas and beach chairs at the client’s disposal. The restaurant has WiFi, and lounge music. Pets are allowed. The place is ideal for meetings, birthdays and events. It’s also a perfect place to come with children who enjoy playing in the sand and discovering the fauna.

Gay friendly. Cool DJs. I live in the area and frequent the place. They have some cracking parties literally on the beach in summer... If you're visiting Almayate, check... More

Cracking paella all washed down with a few mojitos in a tropical garden setting about 10 meters from the sea's edge. What more do you want.
