Description: On July 11, 1988 begins the voyage of our galleon aground on the shores of the Mediterranean. It seems like yesterday and we have been 28 years of experience in the kitchen. The good work of these years has made us a benchmark in Torrevieja's gastronomy, being a necessary step for those who want to enjoy the best Mediterranean gastronomy. The restaurant's decor all wood makes the customer really feel plying the sea and every corner of the galleon is an unrepeatable place for the countless ornaments that describe the shape of seafaring life of yesteryear.

If you are looking for a good fish restaurant in the Torrevieja area, look no further. We have been here several times over the years and it remains consistently good, not cheap but good.
The restaurant itself has an outside facia that resembles a galleon and in the warm months a patio that overlooks the small beach and sea.
Inside is both a restaurant and a really good tapas bar.
Just returned from my latest visit and had excellent razor clams as a starter and cod cheeks in a green sauce...yummy.
Well worth a visit

Very close to the Old Tower or Torrevieja, between Torrevieja town and La Mata is Barlovento. It is underneath a rather delapidated apartment block and not somewhere you would "happen upon". But this is a hidden gem of a place especially the Tapas Bar. You sit around the bar area where they put out table cloths for you and choose from the many Tapas available. Some of the Tapas are on show around the bar - many you just have to know about or ask for. The first couple of times we have been we just had what others were having that looked good! The food is fabulous - the house wine delicious - the service excellent. One of my favourites in the area. OK its not cheap! A bottle of wine and 4-5 tapas will set you back approx £50 - but hey ho your on holiday.

Barlovento is situated on very nice location by the sea. They have a nice terrace heading to the sea. I can imagine that terrace is fully packed in summer time especially on lunch time. Such a perfect place to have a nice glass of chilly white wine and enjoy good seafood lunch.

I had asparagus and Serrano ham as a starter. The ham was good but asparagus was from a can - not fresh one. It is already April so it should have been fresh one.

As a main course I took grilled sole and it was very good. It came with some delicious ratatouille - just loved that! So good. There were also some potatoes but I did't eat them because portion was quite big.

We did't have any dessert. You will pay more in here than on other spanish restaurants. But I think it's worth it.

Amongst a jungle of concrete apartments you find this gem hidden on the seafront. A wonderful place to eat fresh fish cooked beautifully although it was served cold we complained and without any problem we received two new dishes. The prices are higher than the average Spanish restaurant but the quality is worth the extra euros,
