My title tells the tale! This is over and above a chirinquito; rather a go-to lunch place complete with sea front view and 'tumbonas' to lie out on too.

Lovely setting - right on the beach front. Food amazing. Service very friendly. Service prompt. Bill cheap. They even had truffles to buy with your coffee - one of life's simple pleasures!

We decided to visit This restaurant after reading good reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was good, great value and we were able to sit outside and eat while listening to the sea waves on the beach.

We had a lovely meal, staff friendly and attentive, but not pushy. Chicken in mushroom sauce lovely, Merluza ( hake ), pork in pepper sauce and rosado ( whitefish) all good. Too many drinks to mention, 74 euros. Value for money yes indeed.

This a a relaxed, casual restaurant right on the beach with a good selection of seafood dishes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They also have sun loungers on the beach in front of the restaurant.
