Our first dinner was three kinds of fresh fish in a subtle and interesting broth with clams, mussels, potatoes. Came with nice bread and, our choice, a spicy Rioja. We loved it and drank and ate for two hours.
Liked the food and service, the noisy bar ambience, families and fishermen, that we came back the next night. Warmer outside, so we had octopus with truffled potatoes, mussels with lemon, a pitcher of sangria. Service friendly and cheerful, food just right,
Terrace warm with propane flame. Our experience was everything we hoped.

We originally stopped here for just a coffee, along with our dog. One of the waitresses came out and pointed at our dog saying something in Spanish (my Spanish is not great!), and we were oh no they don’t take dogs, however all she was trying to say was that the lead was wrapped around our dogs paw!! She then even brought out a dog bowl, and proceeded to fill it up with mineral water (which we weren’t charged for btw). Coffee was lovely.
We wandered off, but decided to return for lunch given the warm welcome we were given. Lunch was amazing, started with an amazing house salad which was big, but very tasty. We did go to order another starter, but the waitress informed us that the salad would probably be enough for two which was very accurate and appreciated! I then had the Merluza (Hake) on top of black rice with cuttlefish which was really really (yes thats two really’s) good. Price was very reasonable, and it was a really nice spot on the harbour side with great service.
We’ll definitely be returning on our next trip to this beautiful part of Spain.

We had dinner at this place, we were drawn in by the beautiful view of the harbour and the bridge. That's the only positive thing i can say about it though. The bread was days old, could hardly eat it, it was so hard. The tuna that came with the salad was the most disgusting tuna i've tasted, very fishy and not fresh at all. All the other food was mediocre at best.

Dont go to this place, cant recommend it at all.

This is a simple restaurant for having a beer and some “tapas” but that’s all and not a big deal. So there are a lot more restaurant to eat some thing that are worthwhile. The “mejillones” there is too much oil (my experience).
Thank you!
