Every time we go to Tarifa we make reservations for this wonderful restaurant. We always order the same dishes: Tuna and Ortigillas. Service is a little slow but we do not mind as we enjoy the ocean view with a cold glass of white wine....More

Great service, great food, great location. We were found a table even though we had not booked and it was full, we were served and attended to quickly. Friendly service, good price and the best fish and preparation. Will probably return next week.

Obviously the place is a hidden gem for what concern the location. Great view, close to the beach. Good fish but ok for the rest of the dishes. Ok wines. Service is nice but incredibly slow, over an hour for the bill is an exaggeration...More

We parked in the restaurant car park which was 5euros but if you eat there then you get the money reimbursed on your bill. We booked a table for lunch (3pm) and headed up from the beach just before. We were left for 40 mins...More

Our hotel recommended this fish restaurant on the top of a hill overlooking Valdevaqueros Bay. We had booked for lunch. We got a table inside and not on the nice terrace. We still had a view to the ocean. The waiter literally threw the menus...More
