The starters were ok. As main course I ordered a Dover-sole which was average. My wife ordered "rodaballo" - came half cooked ( raw) complaint was accepted immediately and fish went back to the kitchen, returned however to the table within 4 minutes - burnt.

Lovely location sitting outside in sun watching the world go by and looking out to sea. We shared plate of mixed fish with salad. Great mixture of fish. Portion size was very big, enough fish for 4. Lovely bottle of rose wine went down a treat.

Great find just off the promenade. Beautiful interior. Staff brings out the raw whole fish for you to select from before ordering and artfully debones the fish for you. Pricey but great service and unique décor.

I went with friends to this restaurant, it has great views out to sea ,the sea food is fantastic. If fact everything everybody ordered (party of 4 ) was very good. A lot of Spanish business people eat here at lunch time and it can get very busy. Service Was also excellent.

Service exactly as we asked and very attentive. Restuarant very attractive and beautifully positioned right on the beach, couldn't have been better. The chef should be congratulated on his presentation and... More
