Came back again after visiting on previous holidays. Called in twice for lunch after being on the beach. Had sandwiches, they came with salad and crisps, plenty of filling. My partner particularly enjoyed the bacon sandwiches. Always enjoy the food in this restaurant, it is of very good quality.

We visited for late lunch on a Sunday afternoon and hoped for a tasty non complicated meal. From the start it was wrong. The vegetable soup did not resemble any vegetable and was extremely sweet and gloopy. The main courses were just as bad with the garlic chicken totally lacking in garlic and it was accompanied by overcooked vegetables, just... More

It was my birthday and I wanted a comforting Sunday roast. We were not disappointed with the tasty roast beef with the usual trimmings. cooked to perfection and presented well. A very busy place frequented by ex-pats. Just one observation - the management gave excellent service, but it would have been even better if they gave it with a smile.... More

J.J's Cafe del Mar is situated in a great location, right by Burriana beach and has a relaxed atmosphere. They were very friendly and able to accommodate a group on 10 of us for a birthday celebration. The menu was pretty average but had some good specials and was reasonably priced with a good selection of meat, fish and vegetarian... More

We visited this place several times at lunch and we enjoy the home made food. The soups were delicious and the fish plate very fresh and well prepared.

I am Coeliac but was always well catered for here I recommend the sea bass fillets,and if like my none gf husband you fancy some home cooked English food like steak pie or nice home made pudding then this is your place. Restaurants gets busy so you will need to book. The set menu is good value!
