Visited Salo at the weekend and arranged to meet friends at La Barca, a restaurant we have eaten at many times before.... Unfortunately food was and experience was not good. I had the fish soup which was just about warm, friends had mussels, they had to complain as nearly half the mussel shells were empty and not in the sauce.. For mains all were just okish... I ordered a fillet steak which looked good when it came but it was really tough and cold as was the veg and potatoes... what a shame normally this place is fantastic.. we later discovered they were understaffed and possibly the food was being left too long before being brought out... what shame as the location is perfect over looking the crashing waves... i will give it another try on my next visit...

Decided we wanted a change from hotel food and after enjoying a few meals out in local Britsh resturants we decided we wanted to try some Seafood. What a dissapointment, the Seafood was overpriced,bland and the service was appaling.The only time other than when taking our orders the staff looked at us when passing was to see what tip we had left ,we sat with empty glasses for most of our meal.As stated in a previous review the manager( I am guessing that was who he was) appeared very arrogant and was nothing short of rude ith both staff and customers. I can only assume this resturant relies on one off customers passing as I would doubt they would get many customers returning.The only positive is that it is is a nice location with lovely views over the sea.

We have eaten here two days running,and i suspect it won't be the last before we return !.The first day was on a very busy sunday and we tried a variety of dishes 'a la cart' the muscles 'al vapor' were superb !! Calamar ,pescaditos and a fabulosly fresh mixed salad.Next day while cosidering trying another place to eat but were drawn again by the 'menu del dia' which was superb.mejeljones and Arroz de bogovante .my son ate half the muscles !!
Great veiws of the bay.
