Extremely rude and gross staff, especially the bold manager. Asking if we could have a drink, the curd answer was; No. In winter they seem happy with business from our friends and us, however now the season starts, we were chased away in a very impolite manner.

We have been visiting Sardinales for over 15 years and it's an ok place. Situated on the beach the restaurant serves good sea food well cooked. We had a grilled fish selection and a grilled seafood platter and both were good.

Following our friend's recommendation we walked for 3 km on the beach to reach this place. From the start, we felt like the staff wasn't interested in showing us a good time. When we asked if we could move to a window spot (while our table was still clean) they (we believe it was the manager) sighed... Paella was tasty... More

We are regulars at another beach restaurant close by which was closed over part of the New Year Holiday. We had visited this restaurant before but not for some years. Since we were last there it has been considerably smartened up. The views of the sea and mountains are very attractive across the small river bed. The service was good.... More

If you're looking for super fresh seafood like calamares, chipirones,gambas à la planche, almejas ( small clams) then you should check this out. This typical no nonsense restaurant is frequented by locals for decades and it's still as good & vibrant as before. Did I mention the price...this is the best part. Great for families as your kids can play... More

Nice restaurant in the "Alicate" beach. In general the crew it is correct, but meny of them think that they are serving in a 3 Michelin star restaurant: far away from reality. The food is good for a restaurant at the beach. It looks that any time in the past was a better time.
