After traveling quite a distance we decided to stop for a bite to eat, it was quite hot for a January day. We sat down and ordered drinks and a meal at the BarBoru restaurant. When the meal was served it was apparent by its presentation that this plate of food was a cut above all the other places that... More

Situated on the second floor of El Zoco this has a roof terrace with views out to the sea. We were there for English/Irish breakfast which was excellent and good value as tea, toast and marmalade were included, unlike other establishments. In high season they haveentertainment most nights but only occasional at the weekends in the off season

I have written a few times about this restaurant highlighting how good the breakfast was and was disappointed to find a changed winter breakfast menu.

Went for a breakfast today and what a disappointing breakfast it was. Asked for scrambled eggs which the chef forgot to change so rather than replate just pushed the fried eggs off and left the yolk all over the plate. The other people I was with had shell in the eggs. All round a bit of a disaster

We went along to see Nick Cripps performance. He was magic! I noticed some mixed TA reviews and so was slightly apprehensive - no need. A very warm reception and it was nice to see that a number of regulars turn out to see Nick on a Friday - had a starter and for a change - we both went... More

We ate here while staying in the area, great restaurant and great food. They have a separate smokers area, which is almost unheard in Spain, but a pleasant change
