A typical Spanish restaurant in an out of the way location. Very popular with locals & amazing fresh sea food. This is the 2nd time we have been here over the years & it exceeded & met our expectations. We both ordered the mussels from the specials & they were amazing. From the outside it looks like a scruffy little bar but inside is a different story, table clothes etc. and if it's not windy the back of the place is lovely with great sea views

Judging on the comments we expected to eat very well here... How wrong could we be...
First they kept us waiting about twenty minutes to take our order, then we had to wait another 45 minutes for our dish. What kept them so long is beyond me, as the - clearly not fresh - fish was just diep fried and accompanied by a very uninspired garnish. On top of this the service was appalling. Very unfriendly, waiter couldn't be bothered less. To top the horrible experience price was outrageous and we even had to insist to get our change back. Since the change was less than 5 euro they had decided to keep it as "tip".
Stay away here...

Grilled octopus is delisious, the terrase with the sea view is a great addition to exellent cuisine. Prices are a little bit higher.

This is a scruffy looking restaurant in a laid-back surfer-style town. The restaurant is located on the seafront and you may be hit with an occasional spray from the windward breakers. Visually there isn't much to recommend this place. It has rickety tables, on a rough pavement 'terrace' (which is rather generous), and in an inside dining area at the other end of the restaurant the floor is, well, just sand!

If none of that puts you off, this is great news. You'll have some of the best seafood you've ever eaten. We were two adults and two children. We ordered two starters and two mains to share at the same time. The mountain of food that arrived was overwhelming and we left quite a bit, even though we made a fine effort to scoff the lot! The grilled octopus was great: a complete leg,or arm, or an eighth, or whatever it's called, but exquisitely cooked. The calamares were equally huge, and lightly fried, again stunning. The table next to us wolfed down an entire fish of some description, the size of a small whale, in seconds, so good was the taste!

All in with wine, about €55. Tremendously good food at reasonable prices. My tip, don't order too much--the portions, even for the starters, are huge!

We ate here the first and last days on the island and recommended it to friends that were here at the same time. We all had very good experiences. The food was the best we experienced throughout the holiday. The restaurant itself looks a bit scruffy but in no way grubby or unclean and has bags of unself-conscious charm. The staff are attentive and always willing to give you the benefit of their knowledge re the ingredients and preperation of each dish. Always had locals in which has to be a good sign.
Thoroughly recommend!
