Had lunch at Explanada Uno which is located at the Northern end of the Esplanade opposite the Marina. A great position to people watch, Explanada Uno offers a selection of Tapas, Toasts and main courses. Reasonably priced menu, good service and a nice atmosphere.

We had to wait 30 minutes before someone came to help us, then again we had to wait for our drinks and tapas, we asked for water 3 times and it took almost an hour. The staff is not friendly at all. Don’t go here...More

Short visit for breakfast. Unfortunately there weren’t too many dishes to choose so we received only sandwich with Spanish ham. But it was quite good and also coffee was ok. But there are many better places for breakfast in the nearest area.

Well, I can't complain about the service - there wasn't any. I've tried to get a drink or a meal on three separate occasions here, and each time it would have been quicker for me to crush my own grapes and wait for a good...More

On the esplanade. The service was slow and disinterested with surly ,harassed staff. The tortilla was just okay, the salad was dry and uninspired, the garlic chicken was just not nice. The toilets were also smelly. Too many other good places so don't waste your...More

Very overpriced. Very bad service. We had an argument on the final price because we didn't understand why sangria was so expensive. They replied "it's because we put different kinds of liquors". Well, in a normal place you make clear that before preparing it... And...More
