The squid overcooked, the shrimps tiny and not particularly tasty, the service, a best, disinterested, overcharged on cover charge. They must be tired of tourists at the end of the season.

Lovely and relaxed- but a bit too relaxed on service . Great beachside location in exclusive little resort which is reflected in pricing. Mixed fried fish was a mistake as was over cooked and heavy in cheap fish !

I don't know why people have been complaining about the staff. We found them helpful and friendly. Even when we showed up only wanting a coffee and they were just about to start lunch, they were apologetic about turning us down. They have to do business, of course. But we had several morning coffees there, a couple of lunches and a couple of dinners, and enjoyed every one. Highlight of the week was our last night, 'spend all the Euros' dinner, where we ordered a large sea bass (lupina) between us, and that was a superb fish. We also had crema catalana twice. Worth noting that their 'plain salad' is one of the few salads we ordered in Agua Amarga that didn't have tuna on the top. It seems that every other place in the village assumes you want tuna on your salad. Tip: if you want a good sized cortado coffee in a glass, ask for it 'grande en vaso' or you'll get a small one in a cup. Price wise, it's a little on the steep side, but sit there for dinner looking out over the sea as the sun goes down and tell me it isn't worth the money. Oh, and be nice to the staff and they'll be nice to you. Maybe not as quickly as you'd like, but look at the view!

Visiting Agua Amarga looking for a nice place to have lunch we spotted this restaurant and thought looked very nice it ting right on the beach. We stood around waiting to ask for seats and we're ignored. We eventually just sat down and pulled 2 tables together a there were 8 of us. The waiter came over and told us off stating that his boss would not like it. He also said we could not stay unless we were eating (the placexwas halh empty) He went off to clear it with his boss and basically never came back. No other waiter approached us to even ask if we wanted a drink. We waited 10 minutes then walked out. Went to Agua Amarga 3 and had a lovely lunch with great service.
