Friendly restaurant with a lovely location near the port. Service was friendly and our calamari was just perfect and not overpriced. Good wine and the bread that came with the alioli and tomato was piping hot from the oven. Would go again.

The food was very greasy and huge portions but we had to pay for it! Probably the most expensive meal we have ever bought in Spain! 49Euro for three fish dishes! Rip off the Brits!!??

We went to Garrucha for the evening having been told it was great for fresh fish. Looked around a few restaurants and found El Birra. There was a bit of hard sell, but the fish on display had clear eyes so we assumed it would...More
