Had heard and read allot of really good reviews about this place so was looking forward to trying it. The setting is lovely. The prices are really good compared to the neighbouring resturants. We love tapas, probably eat to much of it! Some of the dishes are very good - Italian sausage for one, but some are sadly not. Too many dishes are deep fried in too much bad oil. Dishes like squid should be light but instead was to heavy with oil. And a word of warning stay away from the dates wrapped in bacon, which is a real shame. Other dishes are amazing, try the local cheese dishes for one. Staff are really friendly and good.

Have dined here every year for 5 years. It is right on the Marina. The staff are lovely and helpful and one gentleman translates your order into Spanish, so you get a lesson for free. We have had many lunches and evening meals. The food is well priced, lovely and you are not waiting long for the treats to arrive.
Tapas is very good as is a light lunch. My 9 year old says the burgers are nearly as good as mine!! High praise

We have been coming back here for years, in particular for their superb garlic prawns. Great location right on the marina edge. Very good prices and friendly staff. Excellent little restraurant with relaxed, authentic feel.

I wish we’d found this place before our last day, it was a 30 minute walk from our hotel but we’ll worth it. The staff were super friendly, appreciative of every non Spanish customer who at least attempted to order in Spanish and encouraging of everyone’s attempts to do so. Food was lovely, authentic and portions were large for tapas, the waitress tipped us the wink that we’d ordered too much and so took a couple of dishes off our order after discussion and said she’d put them back on if we really were still hungry. She was absolutely right and we appreciated her not just selling us dishes we’d never manage to finish.

During our two week holiday we visited this Tapas speciality restaurant a few times. Each time we worked our way through the Tapas menu sampling different dishes. Portions were good and sometimes we over ordered. By the end of the holiday we were getting our order bang on. The restaurant is quite small and wedged in a dark corner of the Marina next toCafe de la puerto. Service can vary but the antics of the staff often make up for the lack of attention to detail. Tables by the edge of the Marina are popular but in the shade and not many of them. We preferred to eat at the three tables that were in the sun but not so good if the wind dropped. Avoid the table on the left by the opening to the restaurant. Main waiter thoroughfare which shakes the decking each time they go to and from the kitchen.
