Stayed close by so decided to give it a go especially hubby never had a proper paella so "desperately" wanted to try. We arrived about 7:45pm on a Sat and the place was pretty empty. Staff were still setting the tables and getting ready. Inside deco was a bit dated. We ordered sizzling king prawn in chilli oil for starter... More

I visited this restaurant with a group of friends on a weekend and anticipated a lovely meal . I ordered the fishermans soup which turned out to be watery and lacking in substance. Then main meal consisted of fillets of fish, potatoes and salad. The fillets were quite small , the potatoes inedible due to being saturated in salt, and... More

What a fantastic place to enjoy a delicious lunch with a stunning view! My initial plan was to park my hired car somewhere in the area, so I can take a walk in the Catalan Bay enjoying the early rays of the February Sun. Being the only big car park in the vicinity that isn't only for residents it was... More

I have been going here for years, this place is my family's 'local' and we celebrate most birthday's/ events here as it is easy to get everyone together. The staff always go out of their way to accommodate any requests we may have and the food is great. I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant - go eat... More

On several occasions that I have visited this restaurant, I have very much enjoyed, the food, the service and the relaxing atmosphere. If you sit out on the terrace, the view of Catalan Bay is beautiful and adds to a stunning evening with great fish dishes.

Situated at the top of the road leading down to Catalan Bay, great views from the restaurant over the Med. If you want a really good sea food place, this is it.

As a Croatian citizen from Dalmatia, standards for a fish restaurant are really hard to reach. In this place, I felt like home. Chubby owner, who is also the cook most of the time, is prepared to suggest you the freshest dish for the day and be assured he's right. Tried a mix paella for two and I would recommend... More
