We were squeezed in here on a busy Saturday lunch sitting and would have probably done better to eat somewhere quieter ie away from the beach. The food was solid but not great and the service was very slow. There must be better places in Pals.

Group of 14 family had a wonderful last night in Pals, thanks to very good food and first class service from the friendly staff at Mar Blau. They remembered our names from earlier in the week and treated everyone like royalty. We all enjoyed our food and wanted to taste what the others were having it was all so appetizing.

We have been in this restaurant today and I simply suggest you to stay Away from it. You pay a lot of money for very simple food served in a hurry!

This is a 'I can't be bothered to cook so let's grab a bite' type of restaurant. Fish soup a brown puddle, prawns in garlic and grilled squid OK. Puddings from a factory. Say no more!

Good food and great views. We were a large party taking up 3 big tables. The staff were friendly & helpful, but there were a few mistakes with the orders. We did visit again as a family of 3 about a week later and the drink and dessert was fine, service reasonable.

Good food, great service, excellent value for money right on the beach. Extensive menu with simple but good food. We celebrated my husbands birthday here and found the service friendly and fast despite the fact that it was a very busy Sunday lunch.

The food was ok but not that good. They cold put some better side dish than chips. The steak was to rare and we ordered medium. For the lamb was just almost bones, for the price was ok, but why not increase a litlle bit the price and bring one better lamb?

Great fish specialty restaurant. It is located directly to the beach - first line - and therefore a safe choice for young families w/ kids. The kids entertain themselves in the beachsand. Kids menu available. We ordered a paella pescado (fish) and that was the best choice. Great and we can recommend Mar Blau to any family looking for nice... More

This is a bustling and friendly place with a great location. But the food was not as good as last year. The avocado/prawn salad was less tasty, the moules were tepid and over-salted and the fresh fish was served with very boring potatoes. Portion sizes varied and the prices appeared to have risen a bit, too. So, it's great for... More
