We have been eating at this restaurant for the last 5 years. The menu del dia is good and reasonably priced and the setting is lovely, however on our last two visits we have found the service by one particular waitress very poor. The last time we ate there she dropped mussel shells on our friend and no apology was... More

We ate some very nice fish here everything was very fresh and nicely presented . Wine was cold and light service was great and setting really pretty. It was very quiet the night we ate here but that made it even more perfect as the staff were as chilled out as we were. We also tried the tapas bar next... More

We've eaten here several times with friends and family. The mariners' menu for is well worth it. Most dishes, including the mussels, goat cheese, paella and fideua are excellent; the scallops are less impressive. The service is friendly and professional and the locale, right by the marina, is well situated for a leisurely lunch or dinner. My only minor quibble... More

Nearly thirty years of drinking and eating at this restaurant, ignore all other reviews. This is family restaurant at the marina on Riells away from the bustle. Drinks watching the sun go down and then dinner superbly prepared by Freddie, his mum owns the place. This place is not to be missed, especially Sunday lunchtime - tapas next door owned... More

The portion of mussels was very small and even then... More
