“Mixed Experience, some things a MUST, some things a meh.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

1 dinner. We wanted to go elsewhere but wound up here based on several recommendations both online and on the dive boat. A mixed review, some selections were amazing, best I ever had – Gazpacho, Homemade bread, the Mussels included in the Paella special. The goat cheese tapas was also very very good. The churros are a freaking revelation, they are what churros should be – amazing texture and flavor. All of these items I would happily order again and be excited to enjoy. Other things were just plain disappointing, not inedible, just like below Applebees quality, for example, the ham and cheese tapas, the ribs, and the worst, the beef enchiladas. The wine recommendation, the Seafood Paella special and the Carpaccio were good not great. Service was as mixed as the food (3-4 waitresses served us, 1 was amazing, 1 was borderline rude, other two were good). When the bill came and it was almost $200 with tip, I was a little disappointed overall since being spoiled by more reasonable choices with some better food options.
I would go back and just order the Gazpacho (everyone get their own bowl – it’s the best ever), the homemade bread appetizer, cocktails and see if they had anything going on with mussels in it ( perfectly cooked – amazing!) and of course don’t forget the Churros, please don’t forget the Churros! This would yield a more reasonable bill, great food, and their wonderful sea side location.

“Tasty, fresh food in a lovely setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

We enjoyed a meal of fresh fish at La Guernica and can recommend it for dinner - with a nice setting on the seafront boulevard you can enjoy fresh food reasonably priced and in a pleasant atmosphere.

“A+ Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

So glad we stopped here by chance.
We each had 2 tapas plates and everything was great. Our server was very helpful and answered a lot of questions about the dishes and prep methods.
Would go back any time!

“This was the best dinner we had on the trip!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

We decided to share a bunch of tapas. We had the mussels, shrimp, beef skewers, goat cheese with bacon, potatoes, and a few others. These were all so amazingly good that we ordered a second round. If you go to Kralendijk, you absolutely have to eat here!
