The restaurant is on the seaside. During the dinner time my son could play on the beach and we could see him and eat with the quietly. The service level is high, and the quality of meat, super!

Great restaurant, lovely food, good service, perfect beach front location. You'll find cheaper, but you won't find better for steak or morcilla (Spanish Black Pudding). Thoroughly recommend.

We had not made a reservation so set off to reach El Estribo at 7.30, an early hour for Spanish dining. It was already full outside on the terrace but we were seated inside in a pleasant, cool spot where we were able to catch...More

Beautiful steak, very nice spot in general. There is no children's menu however, which is the reason it's not 5 stars.

Open 13:00 til 16:00 and from 19:00 to 23:00 - but reserve a table. Even if they have empty tables they are quite capable of not offering you one! Truly don´t know what their thinking is there. I have watched them turn... More

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. We were staying nearby and took a chance and were lucky. Only open in the evenings apart from at weekends although that might differ in the high season
