We visited Casa Roja early October it is one of the best positioned resturants on the marina, however it is over priced and portions are not very big..for the price you pay.
Service is a bit rushed.
Best part of the meal was the desert a lovely choc cake.

Every time we go to Playa Blanca (five times a year), we go to Casa Roja. It is consistently good with attentive service and quality food. Had the chateaubreand and it was very good. A place to linger and whilst not on the cheap side (you pay for the view, table settings, service and food) it is well worth a visit.

Very smart looking restaurant facing the marina. Great service, specials professionally presented. Superb wine recommendation and the best fish dishes starters and main I have had on the island.
Not cheap but the price reflects what you get. Not very expensive either.
Romantic location but full of families. Faultless and fantastic.

This is a beautiful contemporary glass fronted building in a prime position at the front of Marina Rubicon. So try to book a window table and go at sunset for a fantastic view. If you're not that organised on holiday to book a table don't worry too much as we just went in on passing and got a table next to the window seats and it was still a great view.
Like most restaurants, bread rolls are not complimentary and you are charged 1.75 euros for each roll. However, we were then offered a little complimentary taster from the chef. It was spinach croquettes(which sound odd but were delicious) and a little shot glass of sweetcorn soup which was divine.
We didn't have starters and my son ordered shoulder of lamb for his main which they said would take 30 mins to cook. Now here comes the but..... it took an hour and ten mins before it came. Yes we were on holiday and not in a hurry, yes freshly cooked food takes times but over an hour is just pushing things a bit much. Especially as we ate early at 7pm before the restaurant was busy. When we eventually were served the food was all very good.
We had three mains, three desserts, two glasses of wine, a bottle of water and a coke and the bill was 98 euros so I thought it was a bit overpriced compared to other places but we did enjoy the food and the waiter was very friendly and efficient.

Ate here for dinner twice. First time outside, great service, excellent chateaubriand, all great. Second time indoors, slow service but mostly food still good. I don't have a big appetite but even I wasn't full. To charge 4.50 for an orange juice seems to be taking the mickey, forgivable when service is attentive but less so when one feels a bit neglected...
