We eat here often now, 15 minutes from home it’s lovely to drive down from the hills to the beach for dinner. So close to the waters edge we even see dolphins. The family are hardworking lovely people who remember their clientele. Food is rustic,...More

Beer and wine right on the beach. You don't get any closer to the ocean. Next time we will try a lunch or dinner. This time we only had time for a drink and a tapas.

Was the only people in this place when we visited and much quieter than our favourite place in BOW but smart and on the beach. The girl that served us didn't interact much so we didn't fall in love with it. Would visit again though.

Down the far end of the beach from the main tourist hub. This place is well worth the walk. The gambas pil pil had great depth of flavour and the swordfish filled the plate. Service was efficient and not too unfriendly!

Our first restaurant on our 8 day holiday. Not as good as some of the reviews suggested. Service was not great. We had to keep getting their attention (they were watching tv). Also spoke no English.

Traditional taverne on the beach la Herradura, personalized and friendly service, and excellent menus; refill you with energy, feet in the sand , by an excellent fresh fish and a good salad; now you will wish to be there.

We've just been taken to La Gaviota by our friends for Sunday lunch - you need to reserve on a Sunday, highlighting its popularity - and it was a fantastic, relaxed holiday lunch. Fresh salads and fish in generous quantities with cold beers and service...More

Traditional chiringuito, not 'done up' to try to go 'up market with prices to match' Been visiting here for the last 6 years, but we were disappointed with the food on our last visit. Gambas pil pil used to be the best I've ever tasted...More

Cheap but not nasty. On the beach and simply furnished. Service is good and the food is freshly​ cooked. Possible to eat cheaply here.
