This is the second time we visit this establishment. Last year we had dinner here with other couples , and the service was unfriendly, the food took over one hour to be served, and the plates used were clearly not properly clean. Today we decided to give it another go (maybe we simply weren't lucky last time?) and came over... More

Though a bit more expensive than it should be, this is a great place to enjoy a nice meal and drink right on the beach. The skies were clear and the beer was cold which is never something to complain about. We ordered a large seafood paella and it was wonderful, great seasoning and overall flavour. Service was prompt and... More

Incredible food. We shared the seafood platter which had Lobster, prawns, langostina, mussels, razor clams, monkish, bass and more. We also shared a bottle of Cava, an appetizer and had coffees with desserts for under EU100. The service was excellent, and the portion was massive. They were also very child friendly, and the restaurant was very clean.

The prices tend to indicate you couls expect a sophisticated kitchen. Well this is not the case. The food is the same as in many other restaurants of the area, so not worth spending all that money.

The service is totally from amateurs, clients are transparent, the waiters do not care, they are slow to start, then they bring the second dish even if you did not finish the first one and there is no space on the table. No control of times and tables. There was a table on the terrasse, I was told they used... More

Went to this restaurant with a group of friends from Sweden, that are visiting. We didn't really know what to expect before going there, as it was a recommendation from the hotel in which the friends were staying. But it was great!! The best meal we had in this region during the six days my friends were here. The whole... More

Thia is an example of what waterfront restaurants ought to be like. Good cheerful setting , a menu relaying on fresh local produce, and efficient service. The fish whether grilled, fried or baked is always excellent and accompanied with mixed vegetable cooked just right. The local salad of the region, "xato" is served with a touch of originality, not easily... More
