Done be put off by the basic decor and under publicised frontage . It is a little gem ! Start off by sitting next to the ocean on one of the small tables and enjoy a jug of white sangria- their own recipe and delicious . Then take a few steps back to the covered terrace and feast on the... More

We have eaten in this lovely restaurant 3 times now during our holiday. With any luck we will manage once more before we go home! The fish is so fresh and beautifully cooked, and the setting on the beach is wonderful. It's very good value and the staff are all friendly.

Some friends who have visited before recommended this restaurant and so we decided to try it. It is tucked away from the main run of restaurants along the promenade and you wouldn't come across it unless you were looking for it. It was full when we arrived but luckily someone was leaving and we got a table. The restaurant is... More

This is a beach bar overlooking the ocean, with half of the seating/dining area on the sand. The staff were friendly, we were seated quickly and the service was prompt. We both chose fish dishes and both were very good.

This year we arrived on Valentines Day and made a beeline for this colourful beach restaurant in warm sunshine. The guy in charge professed to remember us and offered 4 fish of the day choices but it had to be the fresh tuna served with a little green mojo sauce a bit of salad and a few Canarian potatoes. What... More

Delicious food, friendly service and great value. We devoured calamari, perfect grilled sardines and croquetas, washed down with several beers and all the while facing the sea in hot sunshine. It doesn't get any better than that.

We were staying around the corner in the Hotel Jardin Tecina and visited here a number of times over the 10days we were there. Whilst we would go and have a few beers before dinner at the hotel we did go there and have lunch on one occasion which was great. We order calamari, house salad and fries. The meal... More
