The restaurant was crowded, so we tought it was good. In fact only two starters were ok - tuna carpaccio and bocarones. The other dishes were very bed (paella was uneatable because of amount of fat on it, octopus galician style tasted like dish washer liquid...). It looked more like food factory than a restaurant. Even aglioli was artificial. Do not recommend.

Visited this restaurant to try the baked seabass and whilst we were shown a table fairly quickly the service was less than average. Have eaten in Zocala a couple of night previously the service there was excellent as was the food.
We shared whitebait which seemed like it had been left under a warmer, the baked Seabass was nice but not as expertly filleted as at Zocalo.
We had to pour our own wine and ask for a desert menu. When we got the bill a coffee had been added €3.50 not the cost but the principle.
Not sure I would rush back given the choice in the marina.

Very disappointed with the meals I've eaten at Botavara this summer. I suspect something is not quite right. Staff seem unhappy and perhaps they've lost a chef. Whatever is wrong it's affecting the quality of food and service. I had fish which was undercooked. Yes they offered to replace my meal but the replacement meal was also dreadful so I said nothing further. I have had similar reports of disappointing meals from friends. This restaurant needs to up its game. It's no longer acceptable to serve no vegetables with an expensive fillet steak apart, from some string fries. Not good enough to serve a few meagre slices of potato with an expensive fish dish. It used to be an excellent restaurant but there's now more choice and others are doing it better. Great location on the marina but food and service needs to improve. I hope it does.
