My husband and I had dinner twice at La Barca and both were great.
The service is excellent, the staff very friendly and the food is the greatest sea food I ate during my whole trip.
Also, the restaurant is on Paseo Maritimo (a marvelous beach promenade) and has a great atmosphere.

I definitely recommend this restaurant.

We were staying with Danish friends in a nearby sea view apartment. We had a dreadful and disappointing experience in a restaurant one night. Before venturing out the next night, not wishing to be 'stung' for poorly cooked and served food again, we read the guest comment book in the apartment. Virtually every guest for the last four years had written a positive and glowing recommendation to eat at La Barca. Our meals were superb and the service wonderful. Best of all, when we asked for the bill, it was so reasonable, we were shocked. It just proves that you should take the time to read guest comment books and that being on the sea front should not be an expensive experience. Highly recommended.

Speedy professional service, decent food. Paella is worth it . It is very popular, on the waterfront.

Very good and satisfying meal at La Barca, which is very easy to find at the base of the lighthouse on the promenade. Beautiful views of the sea and a superb selection of well prepared fish. The house specialty is paella, but it is not the paella of the Basque region - this has no chicken or sausage, only fish and very salty. However the rice is real Arborio and a treat. Other fish and pasta dishes tried were excellent, and while the wine list shows prices only for bottles, wine is available by the glass, as is excellent sangria. Wait staff is superbly professional. A fine meal and dining experience at a very reasonable cost, highly recommended.
