Excellent food and service out of the holiday season. Best to book a table in advance. During peak times standards tend to slip a little both service and quality of food.

My Family had been before and said it was ok and reasonably priced. We ordered some drinks and a bottle of water which was crushed, it looked like it had been thrown down some stairs. The olives weren't very nice, the Calamares came without any seasoning/sauce/garnish and were frankly disgusting. It felt like we were a burden to the staff... More

There are other marisquerias in town which are better, but this is on a main thoroughfare so I guess it gets a bigger footfall. The platter of mixed fish cooked on the plancha was nice, but not exceptional.

this restaurant was a great find on our last evening it has a large outside seating area and being set away from the beach is very reasonably priced the a-la-carte menu is sea based so there is a very limited meat content it is hugely popular with locals so and early (9.00pm) meal is advised, real food well cooked

Lovely fish! Decent price. OK service. No tables inside, just stools around the bar. I would recommend it for a non pretentious tasty meal.

Part of a hotel, there's a restaurant further back but we ate on the terrance. It was a quiet day in Torre del Mar but the bar was full of Spanish people eating their lunch. Pleasant, friendly staff who produced a menu in English when I asked. The food was excellent. Freshly cooked skate, mixed fried fish platter, prawns peri... More
