Our first visit here & we only had one course each as didn't want a large lunch. Food was good & the position of the restaurant is good, overlooking the harbour.

We were looking for something beyond the boundaries of La Manga Club and wandered along the seafront at Cabo de Palos. Restaurant Manager was very pleasant and engaging; good with children etc. Menu extensive but other than three dishes (2 starters and a fish main) the food was average. Heads-up the average cost per cover was E30, which might not sound too hefty, but when you consider one of the 5 meals was a kid's chicken nuggets and the drinks amounted to 4 soft drinks, half a bottle of mid range rose and a bottle of water, it is still a conundrum how we ran up a E150 bill. We won't be going back.

That's more expensive and worse value than La Manga Club. I thought there must have been a mistake with the bill and was set to go back and challenge it as I was so annoyed. Such a shame as manager made such an effort, but the food and the bill let this lovely positioned restaurant down.

We thought we would have dinner overlooking the harbour. Lovely position with table elevated and looking down on the quay. We were drawn in by the banter!!

Of the 4 meals 1 was good - Salmon fillet, 1 was average - child's spaghetti, my entrecôte steak was fairly gristly and fatty and my partners sea bass in garlic was terrible, thin, over cooked, full of bone and running in grease.

Overall it was a bad experience and we won't be going back.

We have been to this restaurant over 10 times in the last few years. (We defected from La Tana after a poor experience). Nice location near the north east end of the harbour entrance, some tables are slightly elevated, great views/ambiance. Service is friendly and well paced. Food is average/good. Prices are a little on the high side (as are all the other restaurants on the harbour front). Good value Menu del Dia. If you have never been to Cabo it is well worth a visit (walk the path around the cliff to the lighthouse then down the beach side).
