Stayed for 6 days in Tarifa for some kitesurfing gear testing and ate in Surla breakfast and / or lunch every day. Nice choice of breakfast all well made and very reasonably priced. Really the only negative I found about it was that was not open before 9:00 am. For lunch they had a special plus the regular menu with... More

We stayed in Tarifa last week, trying many food-spots in town, and Surla choice was the most convincing. Tried it for breakfast (they have a really inventive menu with several healthy option) and lunch (large portions and again healthy food, really nice if you are tired of the typical tapas mix, or Moroccan spicy food). As the owner explained us,... More

We visited as a family and were treated kindly and efficiently by the staff. The restaurant is very much geared to surfer-types but they were more than happy to cheerfully accommodate us. Sushi is only served at the weekends from 8pm onwards. There is plenty of free on-street parking nearby. The sushi would be considered pretty average for a major... More

Surla is a small coffee-restaurant located close to the sea, out to the old town, in the new, "less-touristic" part of Tarifa. We are open every day from 9.00 am, servig tasty and fresh home-made food: we switch our menu three times in a day, so you can enjoy our place for breakfast, lunch, afternoon break (coffe, fresh juices, selection of theas, drinks and home made cakes) till the Sushi (only available for dinner). We take care about our customers with a friendly service, cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Great vibe to just chill and surf the net or engage in some interesting conversation with the locals.
