You can have a snack or something more substantial with no pressure either way. Our favourite is clams to start with followed by their home made tomato soup. Fried squid is another delicious choice.

Pleasant laid back atmosphere,laid back, owner is kinda cool and witty. Fair price for what you get, fresh catch of the day. Nice to dine outside with the sound of rippling waves just a few yards away, and the smell... More

Could not fault the service and the food was superb. Restaurant is right on the beach at Altura a nd not near Castro Marin.walk along the beach from montegordo to work up your appetite and see the shellfish fishermen at work. The shellfish Cataplanas was to die for although I did have to wear a bib to avoid the juice... More
