Miriad of dishes, generous portions, popular family friendly. Excellent service. Some dishes are cash only. Do take US dollars.

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).

Nice place, nice service, good food and good wines. Ate linguado, which was real good and the other dishes at the table were good as well, especially the scallops.

Our tour guide recommended this restaurant to us. Surprisingly good seafood with efficient service. We ordered grilled prawn and mussels provencal and they were both delicious. Their peach smoothie was also very nice - not too sweet.

This was a wonderful evening meal starting with cold pickled calamari, a tomato and lettuce salad and then rice and seafood main course. All served with a Mendoza Sauvignon Blanc. Everything was delicious and service was quick and friendly. The place was also very busy....More
