Went for lunch one afternoon and chose their tapas box, which they prepare for two persons minimum. The way to serve it was clever; with the box beside the table you didn´t have to play and be careful with lots of small plates on your table. And the food itself was great. You can find very nice tapas much cheaper... More

Both the food and location here are stunning. My partner got a salmon tartar which was hands down one of the most delicious salmon dishes she has ever had. I had a seafood platter, a pyramid like, a great combination.

Lunch combo at a reasonable price. Bread and hummus. Tomato soupe, beef stew with rice (too dry) and ice cream incl a glas of cava. Does also offer bottomless cava. Nice staff and great scenery. Does also offer tapas combos.

It was a beautiful March day and the setting of this place couldn't be better, right on the beach. We had a lovely lunch and a glass of wine for a very reasonable price.

Food here was wonderful. There was a very big group of us and the service was still very good. Food was bought up really quickly with every dish explained to us. Wine went down well too!!!

Great lunch at affordable price. This is by no means fine dining but based on service, food and price, it is a great find. Strawberry brie salad is especially nice. And then of course Bravas. Very tasty, cheap and cheerful and you get a real decent amount of food for your money.

Thank Jenny T
