Found this place on the beach next to the hotel and ate here 2 nights running. It is a bar come restaurant located on the beach overlooking the Med. The meals are varied and good and very reasonably priced. Great place to relax and eat inside or out. Would definitely use again

I last ate here two years ago and I was so disappointed. It had been my favourite bar whilst I lived here in the 1990s and it just didn't match up anymore. However came back in October and absolutely loved it again. Friendly staff (the owners I believe), great food, fantastic atmosphere and Prosecco for £12.95 a bottle!! What more... More

I found this great little bar/restaurant when I went exploring one day from our hotel (the Caleta) it is situated in a lovely spot at the edge of the beach. Great prices if you just want a few drinks or a delicous meal - lots of choice on fresh fish specials. Lovely food and great value for money - great... More

Have been several times. The seafood is always good and the prawn skewers are excellent value for money at £3 each. They have a specials board which features amongst other items locally caught fish. If weather is good I recommend the outside covered terrace as the views are even better from there but you will usually have to book in... More

Away from the main hustle and bustle is this delightful bar Jude a short distance from the Caletta Palace. The food was a reasonable price and was delicious, and with it being quiet the barman allowed us to select food that is not normally available until after 7pm. Well worth a visit.

Only came in for a beer to sit back and enjoy the views. It was not busy, early afternoon, and it still took more than ten minutes to acknowledge I was there. I can only imagine how bad it is when busy.

Don't judge a book by it's cover, we walked passed this bar a few times and were informed by the driver of the No: 1 bus that this was THE place, how right he was & we ate here and again and then on our last night they were closed - DUH. The food is great, the service is excellent... More

This was the second time we came here and yet again we weren't disappointed. The servings are very big and the Sea break I had was 3 big portions along with the tail of the fish. My wife had Tuna steak and there were two huge steaks. Friendly service and lovely sea view right by the beach at Catalan Bay.... More

We ate here several times during our stay on Gib (recommended by a local: (the bloke who organises the national day stuff at Catalan Bay). The food was good, the staff hard working and pleasant. Great to sit outside and eat.
