“Romance, Lobster & Moet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Fabulous food and service set in tranquil setting on the edge of the old town. Beware of lobster prices though if you are no very good at speaking Spanish as you might end up washing up to pay the bill!!!

“Stunning view and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2012

It is on the very beach and at lunchtime better to make a reservation. Wonderful shrimps in garlic sauce. All is good, staff friendly. But don't order paella anywhere in Spain-the locals said it is good only when homemade. About 30 euro for person.

“Lunch rather than dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2012

This is a very busy and obviously successful fish restaurant at lunchtime, but not in the evening. Regrettably, our visit for dinner was not a great success. The menu and wine list are extensive, and the staff helpful and friendly.
However, the food was just a little disappointing. Of the 8 dishes we had, only 3 were judged to be excellent.
So, my advice is to go for lunch, and perhaps give dinner a miss, at least in the low season.
