The setting is very good. The staff are welcoming and speak English. We had scallops followed by lemon sole. The food was excellent but the portions are very generous. The bill was not expensive

It really deserves better places in the list. Everything was perfect except the dishes were waited for a while on the line before served to our table which caused delay due to crowded. Certainly I will visit again.

One of the most known places in town, full of both tourists and locals, to have fresh fish dishes. Portions are definitely generous and very tasty. Try something with abadejo, really woth the choice (tasty and without bones)

We had an unformal dinner at this Spanish-style cantine. Unpretentious but decent sea food, generous portions, good service. However, at our corner we had to fight off 4-5 flies that kept bugging us (very annoying, as they kept landing on on our table, arghh).
