Small bar tucked away from the main road.Drinks are very good value with a pint of Estrella (sadly not Dorada!) at €1.20. They don't do food but plenty of good eateries nearby. The bar mainly caters for 'the swallows' in winter but is a pleasant quiet spot in summer.

A lovely little bar tucked away in Las Gaviotas. It´s a very peaceful place where you can watch the world go by. Drink prices are possibly the best in Silencio which suits all of us. Safe and great place to take the whole family. No table service as Marilyns is run as a proper pup/bar. Also enjoyed by all the... More

We visited this very small bar,that seemed to be only used by locals, didn't really feel welcome after reading the sign on the wall telling you to get your drinks from the bar!..when the bar person was sat on the terrace drinking herself,
