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...

We had a late lunch here today and were very impressed. The food was cooked to order and we really enjoyed both the cod and haddock, which had thin crispy batter. Chips were excellent and there were plenty of them. All made perfect by friendly owners, sitting looking at the sea in the sunshine and drinking ice cold San Miguel... More

We've just had a Saturday night supper here. Super sized portions. Really tasty. Excellent wifi if you have 'young people' who rely on it. Really friendly owners. I read some of the reviews and couldn't believe the negative feedback they had received. Do yourself a favour and give it a go.

We ate here 3 times in the 2 weeks we were in Playa Blanca, and every time we visited we were made very welcome by the boss and his wife, sorry can't remember names ! The food is cooked to order so you do have a little wait, but that didn't matter it gave you time to chat to the... More

this café is next door to Tito's Café which gave us 5 atar service. Plaice in the sun offers a terrific serving of fabulous chips - just too much for us to eat but hey who is complaining! keep smiling

Firstly the hospitality we were given from the owners was lovely and pleasant. The food well we just savoured the flavour and a bonus of San Miguel at... More

If you fancy a break from the local cuisine, or need a taste from home, this is a little gem. Lovely friendly UK owner (Nottingham I believe) serving proper UK fish and chip shop meals, with all the extras not normally found in places like this (curry sauce and peas in pots!! And Pukka pies!!) Tucked away slightly off the... More
