Good fried fish. Prawns were sweet and delicious. It was quite expensive and the service was appalling. We expected it to be slow because of the reviews, so we were prepared. It started well, foods arrived quickly then that was that. We tried to order desert but we were ignored. In order to pay the bill we had to get... More

We were biking along the boulevard and want to stop for lunch. Several tables outside with a lovely view at the sea. Service was terrible, the waiter did not say a word or did look at us. He gave us the menu and came back after a while and did smoke in the meantime close to the tables. Bread on... More

Well, I have pretty much said everything in the title. We did have the luck (as we had not booked) to get the last table outside, practically on the beachfront, and that does make a difference. The furnishing is very simple and waiters did not speak English (or French, or German, or Italian) but the service was courteous, the food... More

We ate here a few days ago. We were seated outside (on plastic chairs) with a lovely view of the sea. Service was reasonably fast but not very friendly. They had ran out of certain dishes and we ordered something else instead. Everything fish dish we ordered was fried (and very salty). We had to wait for a long time... More

We reserved a table because this place was recommended to us. Two different waiters came to the table one by one: no smile no hello. (we are with a 3 year old who is smiling at them) when we asked if they spoke english they said "no!" and walked off! didn't even offer menu. 3rd waiter was just average. Ate... More

This place is great in terms of location because it's by the sea and next to a little square in Pedregalejo sea promenade. The food is good but not glorious and the service and price match. It's a good place for a nice lunch by the sea and try local seafood.

We have visited the place twice in a week. We have found this place just by passing by the restaurant. When we saw the all the reservations we asked the staff if there is one free table and we were lucky. It was available on the outside terrace. The first food we had was a paella and it was delicious.... More

We rented a flat in the centre and our very helpful host recommended a few restaurants out at the beach. It was 7 euros in the taxi then a pleasant stroll until we found this restaurant. Pil Pil, house salad and a very good paella for three with a bottle of house rose on a lovely day, hard to beat.

I have been so many times at this restaurant, at weekends it is a very cosy and lively place with many families regularly dining here. Every time the fish has been of the best quality. The seafood-paella is without doubt the best I ever got in Spain, and I have got that dish many places. The restaurant is situated only... More
