This restaurant is advertsing heavily in tourist handouts. Don't go there. There is obviously not always a chef in the kitchen. I'll be more concrete: it is unlikely that someone Spanish or even European could prepare the junk food trash that we got supplied.
If you depend on tourists and one time guests it is clear that you don't care. Our barely touched plates were simply taken away without asking for comments! Because the staff know already.
OK, I'll spell it out for you:
1. Starter: calamares. Can it be easier? These were tough and raw, yes, uncooked in - of course - a soggy batter. They were cut coarsely. We tried two and found them inedible. No flavour at all. They were taken away, without comment
2. Starter: tuna with avocado. Again, can it be easier? We got a thin layer of avocado in a ring as usual topped by very coarsely cut tuna. Again flavourless. How dare you present a dish this way? And lend your name to it? Do you still know what is happening?
3. Main dish: Sea bass. A standard in most restaurants. But awful. Greasy and unappetising.
I quote:"from the Ala Carte menu. The fish was full of bones and very fatty, the skin was left on which was not very appetizing in appearance. Needless to say, my husband was not pleased with this selection." I can only confirm.
4. Main dish: pieces of goat (kid). There may have been small pieces of goat beneath the enormous amounts of breadcrumbs but we could not find them. After the soggy calamares (because the oil was not hot enough) now the oil was hot enough for deep frying. So the thick layer of breadcrumbs was thoroughly fried. Alas, this dish again was tasteless and we had to try only one piece of this spoilt dish to know. Again it went back.
So in fact most of our dishes went back practically untouched. This brought no surprise. The staff sure know plenty of simple places where to eat better.
It does not help getting people flooding the sites with so-called good reviews.
It is cheap but that was not what I was looking for. I was looking for quality and you cannot get that at Fonda Espanya.
