We were looking for some great seafood for our last meal in Valle Gran Rey but I'm afraid this really didn't live up to our hopes or expectations. I had the octopus starter (speciality of the house) and this was quite nice but a little bland. We shared a fish platter for mains. Fish was ok but not much variety.... More

We wanted some seafood so we tried this place and absolutely loved it. Our waiter, Mingo, was so awesome. We tried ordering Paella, and didn't realize that they make it to order so you have to order in advance. No problem, Mingo brought us the fish of the day. An incredibly tasty fish for 2 people that was probably the... More

We enjoyed dinner here on one occasion, it was recommended to us by our host. We ate a portion of garlic prawns between us, nice prawns but a little oily and quite a hint of chilli !

You get served quickly by friendly efficient staff and the patron is Benjamin, a wiry skilled chef. The fish is on display and you can choose what you eat. No frills here, just excellent fresh food. Excellent value for money. Sometimes very popular and crowded, rightly so.

In Spain, and in many other countries, eating seafood is akin to a job; it's treated in almost a businesslike way, as something you 'need' to do every once in while. This place epitomises that attitude. Just order whatever's fresh and get on with it: fresh fish never disappoints. The range of seafood isn't really there in the warm waters... More

I was really dissapointed, because I was recommended this restaurant. The fish we took was raw inside. And when I told the waiter nothing happened.

And plenty of room. The fish soup was watery and it had more rice than fish. King prawns were pretty raw. Fresh fish was very good a bit on a raw side. Worth a visit.

Excellent meal - fresh fish, cooked well and very reasonable. Strange location should not put you off trying to find it.
