Started so well. Friendly welcome. After that, surly waiter plonking food on the table. Over cooked clams, scallops, sardines. After that, surly waiter plonking coffee on the table. Next time, go next door where the food is well cooked and served with a smile.

The location was great in the heart of the Port. The food was plentiful, we ordered individual raciones of Mussels, Baby Squid & Calamari. Huge portions. Reasonably priced.

Lots of atmosphere and noise. Spanish weekend lunch time. We had menu del dia €12 perfectly good for the price on a Sunday. It's always entertaining watching the police pretending to chase away the looky looky men.

We shared some Swordfish, Calamari and a platter that consisted of 3 types of Prawns and a Lobster. The Swordfish and Calamari were great, the Prawns were big and juicy but the Lobster was lacking in meat and hardly worth having. Avoid buying children's ice...More
