This is typical Spanish seafood beach restaurant. The entrance says it’s been there since 1967, and they also have a Michelin guide sticker in the window from 2007. It makes me think that this place had probably had its better times in the past. Now the food is just average, the prices are pretty high, and the service is terrible... More

Great setting on the beach, shaded by trees and very enticing. As a family of 4 with 2 boys age 7&9 we enjoyed the starters but it ends there I'm afraid. I sent my youngest sons spaghetti back because there was no bolognese sauce! My eldest fillet steak, order well done, was rare and my wife and I left most... More

Walking the boulevard we ran into this restaurant by accident. Because of the beautiful garden the terrace is located in we decided to spend our dinner here and we haven't been disappointed. Food is great and staff is friendly. The view over the beach and rocks are a great bonus

Boasting 53 years of service isn't always a guarantee for quality but in this case it's more than justified. The setting is enchanting and we felt very welcome on the lovely terrace full of plants and flowers. The service is very friendly and professional. The food traditional and well prepared. We were there for dinner on a quiet sunday evening... More

Duck fois-gras to start, cant recommend it highly enough probably the best I have ever eaten. Halibut fillet for main cooked to perfection. Definitely the best salads I have ever eaten on the island after many years of visiting, lovely ingredients and delightfully dressed. The wine list is interesting and the wines obviously cared for. Whilst not the cheapest it... More

Pancho is the first restaurant down the stairs on your right facing the ocean at Playa de la Arena. They serve traditional foot since generations. Trees provide shade for the tables, caged birds sing noisily and spanish families spend most of the afternoon enjoying three-course lunches with sangria. We can recommend the paella marinara.Drive a little further to the Puerto... More

Went to this restaurant being a bit bored with the all inclusive food at the hotel. We ordered 2 sirloin steaks priced at €14 each therefore total of €28 for both. I realised after the waiter had taken our order however he had not asked how we wanted our steaks cooked. When they were brought out they were extremely rare.... More
