Good prices with really good fishes. Would totally attend again. The service was nice even though the place looked really busy

If you want traditional in Almuñecar, you can't do better than the Mar de Plata. From the smartly uniformed waiters to the classic decor, it's all there, and the food is absolutely as it should be. I don't think I would order anything other than...fish baked in salt for my main course: perfectly cooked and impeccably served (filleted at the table), with plain boiled potatoes and a sauce ravigote on steroids. But if you like paella (I don't), I reckon that's a good choice too. For dessert we shared a delicious almond tart with turron ic e cream. Not the cheapest in town, but you get what you pay for.More

Very good food. Plenty of food. Well worth the price. Service was nice and quick. The red house wine is good. I really recommend a visit.

Popular with locals and often fairly busy. Great at lunchtime when they will serve (free) tapas with your drink order. Varied menu with fish & meat options. Nice bar. TVs rather overwhelm outside eating however.

The BEST pate I have ever tasted, was exactly the same two years ago and is to die for. Steak cooked to absolute perfection my knife just glided through it (unlike the steak at La Dorada de Plata where I nearly put my shoulder out...trying to slice it!) and the flavor was exquisite. My partner had lamb and also said this was superb. Back again next year, please make extra pate!!!!More
