We found ourselves watching one of the UEFA EURO games here. It is right by the water front so we thought it could be a bit of a tourist trap, but the food ended up being good. Good quality tuna, Albright the dishes we ordered were prepared with much too oil, which spoiled the taste, but anyway, it was ok.... More

Great service, cheap grub. Good honest Spanish food. Ate here two nights-service was great. Get the salads then "brocheta de rape" or brocheta de carne / paella for two. Trust me you will not be able to move after. Clean restaurant, staff very friendly and attentive menu extensive. Barbate is a simple honest gem.

At this restaurant you can have typical regional breakfast, ask for a toast with cured ham or with “manteca colorá” for a different taste, grab a table just by the seaside and enjoy your morning coffee while the town wakes up and get relaxed without paying xtra for the great view.

We found this place near the end of the trip. This appears to be family run and has excellent service. The waiters all move very quickly. Service is very attentive even though they are always busy. We found it while looking for a late dinner. We stopped here another morning for a quick breakfast, coffee and a tostada w/ tomato... More
