This is a lovely, homely local seafood restaurant that offers a good selection of very fresh fish, crabs, clams, sea snails, mussels, oysters, prawns etc.etc. The food is cooked well, the service is very friendly. The value is very good. I would highly recommend it...More

It doesn’t look much from the outside, but inside is a unique, interestingly decorated (in photo frames and Spanish flags) seafood restaurant with very friendly staff. The staff didn’t speak English but were very pleasant nonetheless and offered us menus in English. Immediately, we were...More

We hadn't booked but managed to get a table for two 10 minutes after it opened. It was almost the last table so I would recommend reserving in advance. The menu was varied and interesting. We chose oysters, mussels and sole and all were delightful....More

A great find thanks to the reviews on TA. A local place where seafood and fish is king. We had the gambas blanca and mussels for starters followed by red mullet to share for mains. The restaurant was full with people waiting outside for a...More

Small Mom and Pop bar/restaurant. Very tasty fresh seafood. We had the most delicious fish soup which was enough for 4 people. We also had the fried calamari which was very tender, and a sea bass cooked to perfection. Great service, and great prices.
