“Lovely food, excellent service”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Mainly a fish restaurant. There was so much English food everywhere, including in the hotel restaurant, we became desperate to find something genuinely Spanish and this was it. Generous portions reasonably-priced and delicious.

“Wow”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Happiness upon this restaurant totally by accident and what a nice accident at that. We decided to ask the waiter what he recommended, he just walked off and after a few minutes can back with two large plates of fresh fish and langoustines, we immediately said yes. The fish was cooked in a salt pod and then opens and deboned by the waiter in front of us. A fresher, tastier or better cooked fish dish we have never had. The langoustines were also cooked to perfection. We decided not to have dessert but when we asked for the bill the waiter brought us little cubes of dark chocolate clotted vanilla ice cream and a lovely guarupo, lovely end to the perfect meal.
This is truly a gem of a resturant.

Noce place, really good food. You'd better reserve. Ensalada la cala is superb and pulpo a la gallega is not to be missed.

“Fab Fish Restaurant”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

This place is a must, if you like good fish and beautiful scenery this is really for you. Book ahead and ask to be seated outside along the edge of the terrace for a view that you can't beat. Huge variety of fresh seafood available - some cooked on the outdoor BBQ/fire pit. Staff are attentive and will help advice your food choices. The only let down is that the desert menu seems nothing special, always go into the restaurant to look at the homemade desserts in their fridges which are a lot better. Non-fish options are limited (but what else could you expect in a fish place?!) and the Sangria is great!
Looking forward to going back!
