Definitely the place to eat at the mercado, steaks are really good and the service is outstanding. Start your meal with a "medio y medio"

What a pleasant surprise to see paella on the menu of this parilla. Take a look at the picture below. The mouthwatering paella was every bit as good as the one we had in Spain. 😋

We visited the Mercado Del Puerto on May28th around 3:30 p.m in a group of 5 couples. All restaurants were empty and it was the Champions League final (Atletico x Real Madrid). This place seemed nice and a TV was turned on displaying the game, so we walked in to watch the game and have some appetizers and drinks. No... More

I had not liked at all the kind of meat was at my plate. Instead of fresh meat recently cooked it tasted like has been grilled day before and just heated at the moment for me. I claimed my feeling to the waiter and also to the clerk. Their answer has been been evasive. I would never come again.

Very nicely grilled cuts of different meats. Lovely roasted peppers. The only about eating down here - that counts for all the restaurants at the market. There is a thick smoke and stench all the time from the poor ventilation, but I guess thats just a part of the experience.

We had been looking forward to having lunch at this famous restaurant based on reviews here and also on TV documentaries we had seen. We found our lunch to be very expensive (around 66.00 USD), and the meat mostly tough and gristly. For me, the chicken was the best thing. We got a big pot of meat, but it was... More

Delicious barbecue. You can see all the meat on the grill, the service is great and you can visit the market afterwards.

Cold beer and a selection of perfectly barbecued beef is my idea of a great time 3 to 4 times a week! This has you covered.

I had been looking forward to visiting this place and was not disappointed. The prices seemed reasonable and the steaks and chorizo was great. My roasted peppers may have had a bit more cooking but it was oK.

Meat was over cooked, the sausage was even burnt. I had to almost argue with the waiter to get one that was not hard and black. The cheeky bugger told me it was normal for it to be black, I said of course, but not rock hard! They forgot our pork, which is the reason we even went their and... More
