We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel who made the booking. The view is stunning over the marina despite the pouring rain that evening. Although out of season the restaurant was busy due to a loud private party, however the service was excellent and each member of staff as nice as the next. Sadly the food was at best average - we shared a fish and shellfish rice dish, which consisted of 2 langostine and octopus with rice but we were charged 25 euros per head - a complete rip off.

Dear Mrs, Serena :

First of all , we would like to thank that you have given us your opinion on El Gran Gatsby through Trip Advisor .
We also welcome your comments of the wonderful views of our local and , above all, on the quality of our service, something we strive every day to improve.
Sorry you coincided with a large table that, logically, made ​​the atmosphere was something louder than normal. Our restaurant is usually a quiet place where you can enjoy our cuisine from a unique location.
And we soory even more that you considered the price of the dish you ordered, lobster rice soup with claims , had a high price , but the ingredients and preparation of this dish requires us to be offered for a minimum of two people and adjust the price which is in the menu. .
We ppreciate very much if you would like to visit us again and please, let our staff requested the dish that best fits what you want to consume.
Thank you very much again for your comments, have no doubt , make us better every day .

The view of the marina is spectacular, but the food less so. In my opinion the food was only a little above average and consequently overpriced. When we dined, it was a quiet evening, and out of season so i cannot really comment on the ambience. Los Bandidos is in the same sort of price bracket but, in my opinion, far superior.

The location and the view is great. Tasteful decor. The service is very good but the food could be more interesting. Many good choices of wine.

Went here for dinner and at first thought it looked ok - very modern decor. We were the only guests in then a couple of tables filled up. Everything here is all overstated deconstructed rubbish. We ordered lobster salade and thinking we were to expect a wonderful fresh salade we were confronted with a cold concoction of mixed veg with a lobster claw on top - probably came from Iceland . Then I ordered a sirloin steak and at the last minute they said not sirloin but fillet - this raw blob of meat arrived which you would have needed a chain saw to cut. Just sent if back - I was not offered a replacement - thought about walking out but hubby said give the dessert a go - what!!! I ordered a creme brulee - surely they could not mess this up but how wrong I was - a cocktail glass arrived with some cold custard in the middle with meringue - yes meringue on the outside. They obviously do not have a qualified chef to serve up this disgusting food. I say NEVER AGAIN.

We went for a birthday earlier this year and were quite impressed, we had heard many good things about it!
The wine, food was lovely and the staff friendly. At times it was hard to get their attention but for most of the night it was fine. We had a table overlooking the sea, where we could watch the sun set!
Very stylish inside and a good central location!
