Dont ask for the shrimps....VERY EXPENSIVE....and not worth at all. The rest of the menu, good quality for a reasonable price although its a bit expensive. Good service and nice staff. I would repeat!

We had some tomato salad, shells and the famous "gambas" from La Garrucha as a first dish. Excellent and fast! As second dishes we had fresh grilled tuna and cod. INCREDIBLE!!! We never had something better before. We'll definitely come back :-)

The restaurant's idea is simple - fresh fish served simply grilled with bread and a plate of tomatoes. The fish is king here, a choice of perhaps 20 different fish. Beautiful setting n the beach of Garrucha. The most expensive item on the menu, except...More

Nice place, good service, very limited menu, fish as a starter and a main course, only one dressing/sauce, just tomatoes as a vegetable, as dessert prepackaged icecream out of the freezer. That is all right but prices are comparable to Boracay, the restaurant next door...More

Great location on the beach. Fast and efficient service. Food was excellent - fresh and simply done. They don't have a menu so you have what's there. We had some excellent calamari, tuna, swordfish and fish roe. Not cheap though.

Lovely spot on the beach in Garrucha. Excellent tapas and good service. It gets incredibly busy so you're best off getting there early for a long lazy lunch or popping in to book yourself a table!

Lovely location next to Garrucha's beach and a very good choice for dinner, once temperatures have gone down. We had a lovely bottle of Verdejo from Rueda which, at €15, was a tiny bit overprized. The service was fast, although the waiter was not in...More

The reviews moaning about price and variety need to get a life. Fish is what they sell. Fish is what they buy off the boat in the morning, only 20 metres from the galley, so for those experts claiming not fresh or overpriced don't have...More

Superb shellfish. We sat outside overlooking sea with welcome breeze (it was end of July!) Very pleasant waiters. One drawback is lack of toilet facilities. Only available one is the public one on beach. Would still return though.
