Great fish dishes - grilled dorado with salted potatoes very tasty. The king prawns were enormous and beautifully cooked. Best dish was the fisherman's paella.

We did not book and they squeezed us in because they are kind but booking is advised. I got house paella and my boyfriend got the steak and both were spit on !! Very tasty!! The red wine choice is really good too .
