Our second time here. Great fish and chips cooked to order, light batter to die for. I had a large haddock which was exceptional, my wife called it a whale. The view sitting in the sunshine looking over the Atlantic is great. Wish we had a quality choppy like this at home

I have previously been here an many occasions, however this will be my last visit. When we first arrived we almost didn't stay as it was empty. Very unusual for this place as it was always bustling. However we decided to bite the bullet. This was a mistake. We ordered, expecting the quantity and quality that we had previously experienced.... More

Can't fault a thing! Lovely meal, freshly cooked and served by a really lovely couple. I was gutted when I asked for plaice to be told they didn't have any but it would be on the next day. No use for us we were only there for the day so ordered cod. Couple of minutes later the lady came to... More

We have been coming to Playa Blanca for years. And we always make a point of taking fish and chips 'home' one evening. So in we marched on a Tuesday evening to pre-order before having a drink in a local bar. Two things struck us immediately. First of all, how quiet it was. It normally is heaving. Secondly we did...
