Cannot the food on either occasion we visited here but the staff were very slow on our last evening visit, leaving us freezing sat outside. Be aware they also don't return your change when you pay your bill as they presume this is a tip. Would have tipped obviously but would be nice to be given the choice how much!

I've eaten here several times over the years, most recently late-September. I usually sit indoors at a window table (to lessen risk of mosquitoes/flies on outside terrace, where if it is warm and not too hot and with a bit of a breeze it can be quite pleasant to sit though) as it's nice to watch night falling over the...

This restaurant is located right on the beach. The selection of fish is excellent. I had the Talbot and I can highly recommend it. Good food, good wine and very good service

First visited when the restaurant opened after the maitre d at the Playa Grande Hotel took the plunge and bought La Siesta around 12 years ago. Sadly it has been plagued with uncertainty as the local Council were intent on demolition of the only remaining structure on the beach side of the road at the end of Bolneuvo. Happily we... More

Lovely resturant, food and deserts. We had steak cooked to perfection and good attentive staff. We always go here when we visit Spain and it did not disappoint.

While this restaurant is not cheap it provides excellent quantity and quality of food. It is not open everyday so it is worth checking before "just turning up" The staff are helpful and attentive and the location is lovely on the beach.

We have had several meals here. Each very memorable all for the right reasons. Great food and priced accordingly. Excellent wine and very good service . Perfect for a special occasion. Be sure to book as it is very popular and the restaurant has days when it closes for staff rest. Highly recommend.

On the beach at Bonuevo opposite the sandstone towers. Recently saved from demolition and should be able to carry on for many years to come. Hence, they should update the décor and spend some money on the curtains etc. Service was poor. Food OK. Stakes usually good but will not be returning soon.
