Watch out - closed in wet weather, we were disappointed to find it locked on those days. We regularly ate at South Beach through the winter season. It was always busy enough for there to be a decent atmosphere. We liked the funky décor and music and the fact it's right on the beach so the kids could play with a bucket and spade whilst we had a coffee and then sometimes eat. The food is good. Maria is a terribly bad tempered waitress who was always trying to kick us out early so she could go home, even though we were enjoying the sunset and it wasn't quite due to close! But the other staff were friendly enough. This problem probably doesn't happen in the busy months. The clientèle are all very self-satisfied, self-conscious and full of bling which isn't our scene but we overlooked that for the location and food.

Good overall. Great location right on the beach. Good food, friendly staff. Lovely cocktails. Would return. Only negative: it was very busy so service was slow & orders got mixed up a couple of times.

Visited here on a December day when not many on the beach but restaurant was busy, always a good sign. Families here seemed happy and well catered for. Our food was fresh and tasty, though service little slow. Starter salad and main course arrived together, being somewhat surprised we questioned this to be told that is the way it is done in Spain. We were also made the offer of taking away the main course to reheat in microwave after. Personal experience of having visited and eaten in the area over 20 years this has never happened before. We were never offered dessert or coffee and finally decided it was time to just request the bill.
