We have not been in Torrevieja for at least five years and remembered the place hidden in the pedestrian zone right around the corner from the busy seaside promenade. We were a party of eight. The menue is mainly seafood, but the meat is good as well. Service is very friendly. We shared starters - grilled cigalas and clams in... More

The food is always very good so is the service (it's family run including the chef) They are now doing the menu of the day in the evening which includes bread and bottle of wine... More

Fish not super fresh strange as you can practically smell the sea, and a common theme here in torrevieja that the dishes are all from Galicia. Octopus well executed but needed seasoning as just tasted of nothing. Calamari fresh but not crispy, avocado cocktail nice, lemon sole good but nothing to write home about. Service was annoying rather than anything... More

The seafood tasted really fresh and the service was pretty good too. The meal was a bit pricey by local standards, but you still get good quality. Worth a look at if you're sick of pizzas and burgers for sure.

Lovely Spanish restaurant with excellent service from very smartly dressed waiters. Wide variety of food but the Sea Bass was the highlight for me. It is brought to a side table having been baked in salt then the salt crust is broken and the fish filleted by waiters that appear more like surgeons as they prepare it for you. Excellent... More
