Total let down. The food including dessert was terrible and the staff were surly. Actually concerned about food poisoning so left main, gave pudding a try equally bad. Staff member rolled his eyes when we asked for a lemonade. Cheap and nasty.

It is always a pleasure to eat in A Barraca (aka 'The Hut') - never disappointed. If eating fish is your desire, then get booked in asap for fear of getting a 'sorry, no room'
