Food good and beautiful views. More costly than a tapas bar but not expensive and worth it. You can eat in or our side and the toilets are lovely and clean. The service is Good too. Everything you would expect from the Balcon de Europa.

We had blue skies over the Balcon Dr Europa today which enhanced the panoramic town, mountain and sea views enormously.

Going out to the sea, a perfect view above the surrounding landscape and coastline, some restaurants around (go a bit away for better prices), a small church, good for enjoying the sunshine and People watching and do noz miss the birds.
