We visited here on a recommendation in May 2016. We were early 7pm , no one else there, that's OK, waiter had no English, still ok, he was very nice, I looked up my English Spanish translation on Google and somehow told him that I wanted my steak very well cooked and that's how I got it.

Is this restaurant still operating? Wanted to doing there last night but it was not open. No signs indicating hours of operation. Looked like still a viable business but not sure.

Very good spanish food. Fresh fish and seafood. Reasonable prices (not cheap) Modest ambience, but makes up for it in dining quality. Central location.

While visiting Rota last spring I sampled several restaurants in the area. Meson Alicantino serves typical Andalucian fare that is well-prepared and served artistically in ample quantities.
