“Simply perfect”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We found this place on tripadvisor. It is located at the far end of a peaceful beach town which is not so much crowded by tourists.

We had perfect meals on the terrace during a gorgeous sunset.

I am very picky with food but the food was amazing.

I can absolutely recommend this restaurant.

“The Restaurant at the End of the World”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

As you arrive at Antipodas you run out of road. There is nowhere else to go so what a good place to stop for lunch. The views are breathtaking and the food is fresh and local. Service is friendly and efficient and, after lunch, you can relax on the beach and swim in crystal clear water. Perfection.

“What's going on?”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We have been to this restaurant every two weeks for ages and I have previously given it a glowing report for its location and menu del dia...
...we went there today and were informed that changes applied during July and August...now it was a plate of the day.....
....the menu was reduced to 3 courses with virtually no choice....a salad...a choice of lamb chops or tuna....and a poster of bread pudding or melon....
....this is not what we're used to here at this restaurant....especially when they've upped the price to 12 euros instead of 10...?
....what's going on?....reduce the courses and up the prices?
Not only that....the food was mediocre to say the least....and other places include a salad, bottle of wine and a coffee in their price.
....having raved about this restaurant as my favourite place to eat I am very disappointed that it has adopted a policy of increased prices and poorer quality meals purely to exploit the tourist season of July and August....
....and obviously we are not the only ones upset with this policy....we booked a table as usual as it is necessary.....but the place was half empty....!
.....this place may have the view.....and used to have the well cooked, interesting variety, menu....but not since July 1st it appears....
....we will not be returning for our usual visits after today's meal.....all I can hope for is that standards improve after the tourist season....
.....I hope the owners take note....do not take your regulars for granted to make a few extra euros....!

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am sorry to hear that you feel the value of our menu del dia is so poor. In our defense, the menu has been at 10 euros for more than 5 years without an increase, and we feel that the price increase is only reflecting the general increase in food prices which we are all suffering in Spain. I am sure you would agree that it costs you more to fill your fridge now than it did in 2008 ??

The lack of choice is, I am afraid, purely due to our inability to produce 12 extra courses of food in the kitchen when we are extremely busy. We are very popular in the summer with tourists and this puts pressure on all the staff.

We do indeed have many regular customers. We love them all, look forward to them returning and hugely enjoy serving them in such a special place.....to continue to be able to do so we must pay our bills, so again I am sorry if we have upset you by increasing our menu del dia by two euros, but sadly it was unavoidable.

We very much hope that you feel able to return to dine with us again soon.

“A return visit”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We ate lunch here twice and had an evening meal during our recent stay in Mazarron, La Azohia is so lovely and the views from this restaurant are stunning. We love the salads at lunch time, very good value and very tasty. We booked an evening meal. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. One member of our party ordered the salmon, I think she would have appreciated some more vegetables or a salad. The meal looked very bland with just mashed potato and some fried leeks. Very tasty though and very good service. We will return.

“Great Food with Stunning Sunsets”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We ate at the Antipodas twice on our recent visit to the area, having eaten here before on recent visits, it was a must.
We were not disappointed, great food, great service and a lovely sunset thrown in.
