Best eatery in the whole of the Playa Blanca - we ate there on two consecutive nights. Beats the fish and chips back home in the UK by a mile.

Having read the reviews we decided to try out Plaice in the Sun. Very clean with friendly staff, but the best thing was the quality of the fish and chips. We had cod chips and peas they were the best we have tasted for a long time. Sweet white cod in a crisp batter. The chips and peas were of... More

This is just the best place to eat fish and chips in the world. The food is lovingly prepared and excellent quality and served at your table looking out to sea under a blazing sun. Chilled glass of beer to go with it. Absolute heaven.

I did something that almost never do when away - I searched out a Brit owned establishment! After reading that this was the No 1 place to eat in Playa Blanca I had to give it a try. As you can imagine, this is a fish and chip shop, so don't expect tablecloths or deferential treatment! However, if you don't... More
