Fresh and cooked in a very careful way. Tasty and pretty well served, full of side dishes. Very nice service from the waitress as well. A place to go.

Hands down the best seafood restaurant in Pipa. Friendly spanish owner makes you feel at home. Freshest kings prawn in town. Spanish style tapas to die for - the pulpo a la galega is the winner for me. Thoroughly recommended.

Humble establishment, not so humble price, but you get what you pay for. The quality is superb. I ordered the ceviche and marinated sardines, and they both tasted fresh. If I have more time in Pipa, would definitely cone back.

If you like fish Rola Peixe is worth a visit. There's no menu - only to whiteboards since the menu is put together every day from what the fishermen have caught. Delicious food and great service - I went twice during my stay in Pipa.

And I'm not just talking about the music. The food here is phenomenal. It's great to go with a group and order a bunch of tapas and share. You can't go wrong with whatever you choose. The ceviche is one of the best I've ever had, completely original. The mussels are marvelous and the sauce is succulent; I licked the... More

Absolute the best fish restaurant in Pipa and surroundings! The fish comes surprisingly nice cooked to perfection. For ones and for all not overcooked, fantastic.. It is advisable to make a reservation, the staff is there normally as from 4 or 5 o'clock Or try your luck at 19 hours when they open Guaranteed, you will be back.

This is a favourite restaurant of mine in Pipa. I have eaten here several times and am never disappointed. The tapas are delicious and it's difficult not to order everything! Fernando, the owner, always makes you feel very welcome. If you're visiting Pipa, dinner here is a must.

Best meal we had in praia da pipa. The Ceviche, tartare and sardine-tomato toasts were absolutely amazing. The whole experience was very authentic thanks to the great host who is also the main chef. Only criticism: main course (galician octopus) was a little small regarding the price.

We went to Rola Peixe because it has a good TripAdvisor rating and because the place has a different look from the rest of the restaurants in Pipa main street. Something more... Not-generic. They don't have a menu because they serve what they find fresh during the day. We had a fish fillet with salad, black beans, white rice, fried... More

The food is authentic, like eating at home. Dishes are very big, the relation price-quality is very high.
