It is worth the walk to find Melonares Playa and then you find Hemmingways.. Having not had breakfast, was hungry having walked from PDI Onion soup and a lasagna later, hunger was sorted. The soup was well made, and the lasagna was piping hot !! Great service is an added bonus !!

We tried another restauarant La Prao and it was ok, but the service was slow no the staff and food were still much better in Hemmingways. Try the baby squid, paella, tiger prawns, JohnDory or steak and prawn kebabs, all excellent value. Sangria is also the best in the rstauarants in melonares.

Had a nice stroll along the sea promenade and arrived at Meloneras bay. We found Hemmingways amongst a little strip of restaurants adjacent to the beach. There was a vast menu, we took advantage of the special offer tapas for 2 plate and paella for 2. Massive meals, great food served by friendly staff. Too much food for the 2... More

This restaurant has a prominent place along the promenade at Meloneras playa and nothing is too much trouble for the staff there. For a drink they often have special offers (example 2 euros a pint) and the food is excellent both for fish and meat (especially steak) and really well presented. All food seems to be well priced and we... More

Had the grilled fish specialities - which was really really really great! We ended up having starters, main course and dessert - for lunch!! It was THAT good! The sea view was beautiful - and great that we could send the kids down to the beach to play, and still have them within watch. Highly recommended!

Hemmingways is one of half a dozen restaurants on Meloneras Beach. The food is excellent, the prices reasonable and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Omar is the best 'puller-in' in the business, but most of all, the sunset views over the sea and headland are to die for!

We came back having visited during previous holidays and we were not disappointed. We ordered the tapas for two to start and then the sole and tuna speciality options as our main meals. The starter was huge and there was almost too much to leave enough room for our main courses; which were also good portions and delicious. The service... More

We had several times breakfast here. Full Irish. Always enjoyed it. The service is good and the waiters friendly. Prices are pretty reasonable. A few metres from the beach. Wifi. Everything one needs before going down for a sun bath on one of the sun beds. :)
