Called in for dinner after previously having had a drink in this bar/restaurant. Good quality , well presented food and decent house wine. Inexpensive relative to the standard of food. Good service provided by attentive, efficient staff. Better than many more higher charging restaurants, Try them.

Been here quite a few times and it always impresses us. The roast lamb is absolutely amazing, just melts in the mouth. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting here.

Went here on the last night of our holiday and wished we'd visited earlier. Food and service were both excellent. Made to feel very welcome. Reasonably priced. Will certainly be returning in September when we next visit.

We had a wonderful time at El Ancla, we've ordered Tapas and was Top, super super good. We were served by Raffi and Mark and they've made us feel so welcomed. The place is super busy but we a great atmosphere.

Visited on a Saturday evening which meant it was busy but service was excellent. I had the calzone and it was tremendous, I'm sometimes disappointed with some restaurants calzone but not last night. My other 2 guests had steaks which they both enjoyed after some garlic bread starters. 4 beers and the bill was just under 50 euro's - worth... More

We came across this place after we rode down to have a look around the marina. It's a big place but was quite busy and other people's food looked nice. So we went in.
