We were tired and hungry so this busy bar serving food (11 Euros for menu del dia) seemed a good option. Somehow as the crowds gradually lessened the noise factor increased! Perhaps this was due to the laughter with which we indulged in about the pretty awful food! But for 3 courses, a bottle of wine, water and loads of... More

We popped in here for lunch while exploring the area. Not very busy so we didn't have long to wait to get served. I chose some Paella which was okay but not the best I'd tasted. My other half chose a dish which turned out to be very leathery and chewy. Initially, he thought it was a cut of pork,... More

We've come here twice. Both times we have had seafood raciones to share with chips and salad. It was again really fresh food, freshly cooked to order, lovely. Why can't we do this in my Cornwall for a few euros?!

We arrived late to San Vicente and all restaurants were closing for the afternoon so we ended up here. Waiters were nice but the food extremely average... Not expensive though but I wish we had arrived earlier and eaten somewhere else...

It's hard to chose where to eat in San Vincente - there's so many restaurants - but we were very pleased we went here. Bar Colon has an entrance off the main street and also a great little 'terrace' (about 6 tables) in the pedestrianised area overlooking the harbour. When we visited the place was full, inside and out. A... More
