Good food, great service, excellent value for money right on the beach. Extensive menu with simple but good food. We celebrated my husbands birthday here and found the service friendly and fast despite the fact that it was a very busy Sunday lunch.

The food was ok but not that good. They cold put some better side dish than chips. The steak was to rare and we ordered medium. For the lamb was just almost bones, for the price was ok, but why not increase a litlle bit the price and bring one better lamb?

Great fish specialty restaurant. It is located directly to the beach - first line - and therefore a safe choice for young families w/ kids. The kids entertain themselves in the beachsand. Kids menu available. We ordered a paella pescado (fish) and that was the best choice. Great and we can recommend Mar Blau to any family looking for nice... More

This is a bustling and friendly place with a great location. But the food was not as good as last year. The avocado/prawn salad was less tasty, the moules were tepid and over-salted and the fresh fish was served with very boring potatoes. Portion sizes varied and the prices appeared to have risen a bit, too. So, it's great for... More

The setting is perfect, right on Pals beach, and ideal with children, as they can continue to play in the sand, or on the mini slide, whilst waiting for food to arrive. They have a good selection of pizza and the usual Catalan & Mediterranean choices, with lots of fresh fish a la plancha. Not the best food, but generally... More

Went to Pals today and this restaurant. Very nice plain grilled sole but just 4 small potatoes and a little lettuce. Moules to start were fine. Its a beach side that will be better as the weather warms up and they are busier.By sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

Not planned but as next door had a 45 minute waiting list we plumped for Mar Blau. One of it's daily specials was the Paella with Lobster which we all said was the best we had seen, more so the taste.I had Monkfish done in the oven which was also delicious.Prawns and Sole also good.

We ate lunch and dinner here - as we were on the fabulous Pals beach for 12 hours. The position on the/at the top of the beach is great and if you have small children they can run about on the sand inbetween courses. The staff were really friendly and very funny. The food was extremely good - prawns and... More

Excellent location right on the beach, the service was quick and efficient even though the place was full.Decent food for a very reasonable price, the paella was good. Wide choice of (industrial) ice creams.
