“Enjoyable visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

Ate on the seafront at lunchtime and also a meal in the evening.One of the best siloin steaks I have ever had . Apparently the beef is from Uruguay. Friendly staff and the interior has been transformed. Recommended.

“Friendly and good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

This restaurant was 50 yds. from our apartment, at the end of the main beach area on the corner of a group of restaurants. Not an extensive selection of food, but all good quality, and not over influenced by the northern European taste - felt almost authentic Spanish rather than pandering to the tourists.

Friendly staff who spoke enough English for us non Spanish speakers to get by. Extensive inside seating with a view if a little chilly outside. Great to be by the beach, with the interest of the fishing keys activity in the distance in the evening.

Would recommend for anyone who wants something a little more authentic, and less touristy food.

“Newly reopened Marlin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We went for dinner to Marlin which has recently reopened after a period of being shut. The menu includes pasta and steaks. I tried a special 'espaguetis frutos del mar' (seafood pasta) which was very average. Garlic bread was stale. A mixed salad was average. Two other diners had steak and chips which they were very happy with. Probably this is a better place for drinks and snacks during the day, while you look out at the beach and harbour. I would rather spend this kind of money at a better restaurant in Playa San Juan.

“Looks closed down”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Closed down and chained up in May 2013. No sign of activity however the restaurant next door which operates the beach bars is open provides good "soft" Spanish options.
