There are other marisquerias in town which are better, but this is on a main thoroughfare so I guess it gets a bigger footfall. The platter of mixed fish cooked on the plancha was nice, but not exceptional.

this restaurant was a great find on our last evening it has a large outside seating area and being set away from the beach is very reasonably priced the a-la-carte menu is sea based so there is a very limited meat content it is hugely popular with locals so and early (9.00pm) meal is advised, real food well cooked

Lovely fish! Decent price. OK service. No tables inside, just stools around the bar. I would recommend it for a non pretentious tasty meal.

Part of a hotel, there's a restaurant further back but we ate on the terrance. It was a quiet day in Torre del Mar but the bar was full of Spanish people eating their lunch. Pleasant, friendly staff who produced a menu in English when I asked. The food was excellent. Freshly cooked skate, mixed fried fish platter, prawns peri... More

From tapas to main fish and meat meals, this is one of the 3 restaurant with the same name and on the same street!. the menu caters for all tastes, but I do recommend fish.

A lovely setting with a menu to tempt fish and meat eaters! Attentive service with everything we asked for. Even though the restaurant was not busy, everything was prepared and served in a profesional way. Wonderful picadillo soup and lubina. The steak eater enjoyed his meal and the rolled stuffed pork was also a hit. Will be back again soon.

A bit of a disappointment, not what we expected. Very much what one would expect from the long and mundane list of seafood restaurants. Although we did leave with full tummies and the service was good...but ...We won't be rushing back

Family favourite across the generations. Conchas finas, gambas rebozadas, rosada, periana and the tiny clams are all my favourite things.

The freshness of the food here has to be seen to be believed. It's a fish only restaurant,and the menu is very simple but effective ! Kalamari,rosada,cod,buqaronis whatever is your fish of choice you won't be let down at la cueva. It's very popular among locals and in high season proves difficult to get a seat but it's so highly...
