This restaurant is a jewel among the local eating places. We had the special menu and after nearly 3 hours all six of us were extremely pleased with our choice. Will return again.

Walked passed this place many times thinking it was expensive how wong could I be. Shared the local fish sold by weight, cooked in sea salt and served by the waiter at the table. Fantastic food and brilliant service.

Went there for an evening meal to celebrate a friends birthday. The chef spared no bit of talent as a special tasting menu of seafood (fresh locally caught) was presented - each serving more fantastic than the previous dish. Highly recommend El Pez Rojo.

Very nice location overlooking the harbour entrance. Clearly a family operation with very nice speedy service at a reasonable price. They serve the usual harbourside fried fish type dishes which are as good as you would expect but also some less usual dishes such as...More
