We've been there twice - for daily menu. Fresh vegetables and fruits were served, dressed nicely. Main courses - tasty meat with delicious dressings. Nice, helpful service talking in many languages!

We have been going to Arena for years. Willem is always welcoming, has great staff and the food is great. The buffet on Sunday is a revelation -great quality and plenty of it! Try to catch the Sunday live music sessions when they are on at lunchtime/afternoon..

Good potatoes, excellent squid. Child friendly. Value for money. The food was more European/british than spanish. A nice place to eat after a trip to the beach.

Loved my tuna, cooked perfectly, and also the veg that went with it. Sadly not everyone in the group so pleased with their choices however. There did not seem to be many locals eating there. Nice friendly waiter.
