“Excellent Tapas, good view”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

right on the edge of the port area in old town (unfortunately overlooking car park). Dinner was excellent, both quality and value. Ice cold beer. Good service. Good for people watching and the evening Spanish boules with the locals. Excellent breakfast at very good price of 2.70 euros.

“Nice food and lovely views”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was one of the resaurants near the harbour in the old town which have lovely views of the sea. The food was delicious, really tasty and the staff were very nice. We also had breakfast there one morning and it's amazing how much food you get for 3 euros!

“Great Views, Great service, Good food”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

As this restaurant is situated in the old town's harbour it is a lovely place to eat for couples or families. The staff were great and the food was very reasonably priced. The food itself didn't blow me away, but it was very good nonetheless.

“Old fashioned excellence”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We visited the old town of PDC looking for somewhere to eat and after viewing some of the local menus and finding them very overpriced we went to El Ancla! Very well run operation, great service from the little old man who took great pride in his work. I had the 'Grandma's Special' - Sausage and potatoes from a frying pan and really enjoyed it. Partner had the vegetable tagietelle and she really enjoyed that too. Very big portion sizes and excellent value.

“Busy, fast and good.”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Fully geared up for the tourist trade; this is similiar to a chain. Everyone knows what they are doing. No unexplained lags in service. Will come here again.
