Visited with my wife for lunch on a lovely sunny November afternoon. We were looked after by the friendly and efficient Encarna and enjoyed an excellent lunch overlooking the beach. Great value for money at only 17€, highly recommended.

A lunch made of tapas is what we always have. Delicious and the price is wonderful! The shrimp/camaron tortitas are delicious!!! The view is amazing! A menudo vamos a almorzar a El Velero y comemos puras tapas. Las tortitas de camaron son la locura!!! Los calamares, las albondigas. Los precios increibles y la vista tbien!

Just visited and we decided to go for the paella. It was cooked fresh to order and was one of the best we have ever tasted. Coupled with the good prices it made for a very enjoyable lunch and look forward to going back soon.

The staff of this sea front cafe are very friendly, the food is good, the drinks too. Great views of the Castle and the coast looking south and west, it's a nice place to sit and enjoy lunch.

We were in El Velero on october 16, 2015, because the place is nice in front of the beach. After ordering Calamares as Tapas, we had to wait around 15 minutes. What we got for 4.50 Euro was ridiculous: some minuscule rests of calamares, ech not bigger than 1.5 centimeter, sorrounded by a very thick mass of fried panade. The... More

Our party of three had a very nice lunch here. The tapas were good-sized, tasty portions and the burgers were spot-on. Free Wi-Fi. Only downsdie was that the service was a little slow.

El Velero has some very nice dishes, a wide range of options and the portion sizes are quite big. I've had a spaghetti bolognese which I struggled to finish, they absolutely piled up the pasta! I also feel incredibly full after their chicken and chips (plus salad and egg!) dishes, far too much to ever eat a dessert after. The... More

There being 7 of us as a family group are looking for cost and quality which even though was a few €'s more gave us at least quality. Burgers are hand made, fresh pasta and a really good quality paella topped with an outstanding view, English speaking waiters with a sense of humour made a very good experience with no... More
