Amazing clams, prawns, calamari and boquerones. The service was good and the restaurant was nicely busy considering we were slightly out of season. The clams are my absolute favourite, but the prawns are a close second! Lovely setting over looking the port and reasonably priced.

The food was overpriced in comparison to other restaurants in the area. Customer service was very poor. We had to ask for basic items like salt, olive oil & vinegar. Once served, the waiter never came back to the table to ask about quality or...More

Small restaurant situated on the edge of the marina. Ample outdoor seating and a reasonable area inside as well. We called for lunch and both had fresh fish which was very good. Service was a bit hit and miss and the owner/manager was a bit...More

This is a very good bar restaurant totally family run and the Glass Bottom boat operates from this harbour. The food is excellent but a little on the pricey side as are the drinks, but well worth a visit.

Great little place for a midday snack and a cervesa. Extremely good value for money, brilliant location and great fresh fish! And probably the best Spanish Tortilla we've ever tasted!

Walked over from the beach. You must have fish. Got our order wrong and had a bigger squid dish but no issue. Plate of fried fish too. Loads of chips, which were not really needed. Friendly staff

On a sunny day this was an ideal position for us, not so sure in the height of the season though. A quiet little harbour, good food and service. The paella was excellent and the rum ice cream in an edible dish was wonderful. We...More

Went here today on market day, everywhere was so busy so we looked for somewhere a bit quieter. Found this in the harbour as we walked in and asked to book a table and Paella for two outside in the sun. Waiter didn't speak English...More
