“Great food, great service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

We had our lunch in this lovely restaurant during the Carnivale season in February. We sat outside overlooking the promanade and sea. Our waiter was really lovely, paid great attention to us and gave us great guidance in relation to the menu. The "Soggy Rice with Lobster" was fantastic! Basically like risotto but with more liquid than normal soaking lobsters, prawns and other delights. Truly scrummy! All items off the menu that were served didn't disappoint. Would definitely recommend a visit here!

“Quality Fish Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

Pick your Lobster or Crayfish from the display tank and sit at the elegantly set out tables enjoying a fine wine while your dish is prepared. Tables inside or outside on the Paseo overlooking the beach and watching people walking by. Not the cheapest restaurant but good location if you like to be along the sea front. Good service by tentative staff - plus the most elegant toilets we've ever seen!

“Great Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Attentive waiters serve fresh fish, caught daily, with courtesy and detail. Meals are well-presented, with various options available. Be sure to try the tasty "house potatoes" with your entree. A good wine list is available and a variety of desserts are on the menu. Ate there three times during our week long visit!

“Nice ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Restaurante Baluarte is a few minutes walk from our hotel and right beside the ocean front and beach. It is one of the nicest looking restaurants along the Playa de las Canteras stretch of restaurants. The ambience inside is really nice, good for a romantic evening out in a comfortable setting and it has nice decoration. We shared some cod croquettes (6 Euros), a meat paella (18 Euros) and wine. Portions was large so we packed half remaining paella to takeaway. The complimentary apricot liqueur served after dinner (they left the bottle on the table, drink as much as you like) was delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful. They spoke English and provided an English menu. We enjoyed our dinner here, and had a relaxing evening.
