every time we come here to eat fish baked in salt. Ocean View and tasty fish attracted us each time, although the service is "4"

We visited El Senador on half a dozen occasions during our stay in Meloneras and had a good experience on each occasion. Having read the last two reviews about poor service, we experienced nothing but polite & helpful staff. Great pizza, by the way!

Nice setting shame about the most appalling service with waiters who pull faces when you order. Very negative vibes from the moment we sat down to have a drink. Food prices far to expensive considering the total lack of customer care

We visited the El Senador on the beach and was surprised how rude the staff were. Even though we only had a cocktail it tasted-cheap but was quite expensive. Avoid!

My partner and I visited this bar most days during our holiday as we loved the atmosphere of being able to sit back, relax and watch the world go by. It isn't the cheapest restaurant or bar in the area, but the location and the view almost made up for this. The restaurant seems to be divided into two sections... More

Tasty food and great location! Have visited many other restaurants - this wasn't the best but is ok - worth a visit to be seated by the beach and can recommend the teriyaki chicken noodles!

We stopped off here for a morning coffee and a pastry. The coffee was very good and the two pastries we had were excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and beach side view is nice.

Thought we would stop by at El Senador as the appearance looked good. Had a Pina Colada after waiting 20mins. Then asked for the bill and again waited 20mins. We then waited a further 20mins for our change, however we had to ask for our 6E change as they probs would have kept it as they were not eager in... More

It all started so well! Ordered a nice bottle of Cava in a beautiful spot looking out over the beach to the rolling sea. Then we asked for a menu and to be moved to the dining area - this was undertaken with no grace or politeness . From then on the service was virtually nonexistent. The waiter brought me... More
