It was very quiet on the night we visited with no atmosphere. The food was not great. We had a starter of grilled cheese which was quite bland in spite of the chutney served with it. We then had grilled large king prawns on a bed of vegetables. The prawns were very greasy and not very large - they had... More

This is a great restaurant, alongside the small harbour in Playa San Juan. It is not cheap, but the quality is first class and the setting is extremely pleasant. We enjoyed the fish choices from the specials menu, alongside a bottle of pretty reasonably priced Priorat. Even on a January evening it was very pleasant sitting outside, but there is... More

Had dinner here recently and can say it was some of the best food I've eaten recently! The aubergine and cheese starter was especially good. The service was attentive. Wish it had been busier, but the prices will put some people off

We had a lovely meal here in January and I would highly recommend. Our son who is 5 didn't fancy anything on the menu (they didn't have a kids one) but the maitre d' (who I assume owns the restaurant too) was super accommodating and managed to rustle something up that met with his approval. I ate a great scallop... More

Whereas most of the restaurants in Playa de san Juan seem to be tapas-oriented, this one is a proper, grown-up, three-course-dinner kind of place. It is accordingly more expensive and formal. The food is very, very good - majoring on fresh fish, great steaks and traditional, local specialties such as Canarien potatoes. Sitting outside and overlooking the little harbour is... More

Delicious food, beautifully cooked and presented: tick. Friendly, co-operative waiting staff with a sense of humour: tick. Warned on arrival that they are unexpectedly busy, be ready to wait: again, that's fine, tick. But please do not, Head Waiter, when you seem to want to do things the traditional way and only YOU are allowed to pour the wine, grab... More

As well inside as outside, the tables are not close together, and the tables are nicely dressed. We had a wonderful evening and dinner, and paid a correct price. anyway;this restaurant cannot be compared with... More

Although the menu is rather limited, what we ate was delicious and very well cooked. Overlooking the harbour and with a delightful terrace, this was a relaxed and good place for fish.

Our second visit to Marsala and again not disappointed. A charming venue overlooking Playa San Juan beach with attentive very professional service. The menu is primarily fish orientated with the party enjoying all the food including langoustines, cod in a spicy sauce and fillet of pork. Not cheap but with aperitifs and wine the total with service was €300 for... More
