We had a lovely evening at Ocean Bar Cantina this week. Friendly and efficient service. A good selection of tapas dishes, and reasonably priced wines. The only thing that disappointed was the patatas bravas which, while quite tasty, bore little relation to the traditional Spanish...dish.More

We were excited to try this restaurant and ordered some little plates to share to start. Our booking was at 7pm. It started to rain and we had to put up our own umbrellas as we had a dog and were sitting outside. The service...was terrible- felt rushed like the staff just wanted to go home 🤷🏼‍♀️ she gave us menus and we ordered water - came back in literally 1 min to get food order and didn’t ask about drinks. Every time we ordered she had no idea who the order was for - there was only 7 people. Food was nice but a bit bland for supposedly Spanish- needs some garlic, salt and chilli. That was not patatas bravas and the chicken schnitzel was like a child’s portion. The roasted cauliflower was lovely. Pasta special really bland and pasta was undercooked. After we ate we were not offered a dessert menu and when I asked for a coffee at 8.30pm was told the coffee machine was turned off and the cocktail bar was closed. Ridiculous!! The place is lovely and location but wouldn’t go back due to poor service and unwelcoming atmosphere. Also mains menu a little dull and food needs more flavour - I hope they can address some of these issues as most people don’t want to go home at 8.30 on a Saturday night !!!More

We were turned away at the door because of “covid” without further explanation. Manager was smug and rude. Didn’t make me want to come back.More

What a great find. The food and service was amazing I will definitely be back I highly recommend a visit. We had a variety of dishes between the 8 of us and all of them were fantastic. My 87 pop said it was the best...chicken schnitzel he had ever had. My nachos were so full of flavour and there was plenty to share between two. Winning !!More

Lovely position opposite Coppabana Beach. Nice clean lines inside and about 4 tables outside. Small menu ( not a lot for a vegan or vegetarian) , but what we had was super tasty and filling. Good variety of Alcoholic and Non drinks. Great young woman...that served us, super friendly and chatty. Would definitely returnMore
