We visited this bistro on a number of occasions and were never disappointed with the food or the atmosphere. The staff were delightful and the entertainment fabulous. Highly recommended

Cosy place, friendly service, nice food and good live music on certain days of the week. We were tourists but the clients seem to be almost all expats from the local housing estates. Makes for a nice atmosphere and competitive prices (unlike the town centre). If you eat here and like burgers we strongly recommend the spicy burger...really memorable and... More

We enjoyed the Sunday lunch with jazz when we recently visited. As usual all the staff (and owner!) were very friendly and helpful and efficient, the food was good - lovely fresh buffet - and the jazz was great. A perfect place to spend an afternoon.

This cafe-bistro is open limited hours but that's fine unless you want to visit during the wee hours. The location offers some views of the sea which is a half block away. The food is superb and varied - and very reasonably priced. Sitting on the deck, enjoying a meal and some sangria is one of my favourite to-do things... More

We've been there twice - for daily menu. Fresh vegetables and fruits were served, dressed nicely. Main courses - tasty meat with delicious dressings. Nice, helpful service talking in many languages!

I have a holiday home near to the Arena and have used it quite often over the years when visiting. It has been (and still is) a no frills but pleasant restaurant with no airs or graces. Willem definitely has a winning formula. But over the past couple of years I have disappointed with the food and attended somewhat reluctantly... More

This place is really good! The place, the food, I can reccomend it for those, who wants to get good quality, for not a big price. For example you can get starter, main dish and desert for 8,95 €.

We have been going to Arena for years. Willem is always welcoming, has great staff and the food is great. The buffet on Sunday is a revelation -great quality and plenty of it! Try to catch the Sunday live music sessions when they are on at lunchtime/afternoon..

Good potatoes, excellent squid. Child friendly. Value for money. The food was more European/british than spanish. A nice place to eat after a trip to the beach.
