Used this restaurant for drinks while we waited for the return ferry from the island. Pleasant outlook looking out to sea, however it was somewhat dusty as the outside terrace is next to a dusty dirt track. The restaurant advertised Tapas so we ordered Russian salads, they didn't have any, so another disappointment.

We recently visited the Isla de Tabarca & had an amazing afternoon lunch, the food was excellent and our visit was made exceptional thanks to wonderful staff who went out of their way to make our meal special. Special thanks to Nered & Arantxa who looked after us so well.

Great Menu ( Spanish Rice wiith Lobster and Rice "a banda" with seafood). Tasty rice with very good starters. Menu price includes startes, main course and desserts. 30 € and 15 € per person. You have to book in advance and they give two options (13:30 and 15:30). Be careful in case you had booked the ship back to Alicante... More

Dont eat anything you havent ordered, you will be charged. We had to pay €2 for every person for the bread we didn't order. We also got charged for ice cream bought in a different store. Some of the money was returned. They forgot one dish, and when it finally was served it wasn't what we had ordered. They charged... More

Only a word: disgusting. The food is horrible, the waiters are slow and treat you ti indifference. The bathroom looks like a brothel restored. I'll never!

The staff was friendly, restaurant looks good and clean and the menu was inviting. My friends went for the Paella Mariscos, the taste was very good but the filling was a little... More

During the high season, every single restaurant is packed. We had a table reserved for 10 which is close to the average number you'd see at other tables. It's great if you enjoy eating with crowds in the heat of the summer. Service was a bit slow and portions just about right. Next to this, the paella was simply delicious.... More

I loved the tuna and the octopus I ordered in this nice beach restaurant in the island of Tabarca. The staff was quite nice even if a bit slow in taking the orderings (but who needs to hurry while on vacation?!). Together with a starter of bread and ali oli (a delicious garlic sauce), a glass of red wine (or... More

Perhaps all the restaurants on Isla de Tabarca are quality wise not so good? We only had lunch at Amparin and the service was nice but the food terrible. Tuna salad should not be ordered, canned fish instead of fresh! The Paella was very salty and way too much oil was used. Overall we recommend you to go elsewhere!
