Thought we would look for something different and how glad were we to stop at La Capitana. The staff were very welcoming nothing too much trouble. Excellent menu from fish to pasta to meat and there is something for all to get your taste buds...More

Lovely traditional restaurant at the sea front of the town, which gives it a great view. Friendly service, food is made fresh to order. Great value for money too.

Great food, good selection, we had a variety of tapas on 2/3 occasions. The staff were very friendly and helpful with their explanation & recommendations and reasonably priced. Will go again for an evening meal before we leave.

El Cortillo is a great place to eat and watch the sun set. Service was fabulous. Staff very attentive. Atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. We ordered seafood paella which was so tasty and so much of it. We only got half way through but delicious....More

This lovely restaurant boasts a French chef who adds that little bit of something special to his Spanish menu !! We had several delightful lunches here sitting on the balcony overlooking the harbour and are looking forward to returning next January .

Tasty food! Very friendly and laughable staff. Nice view and nice restaurant design. Small beers are too small, but who drink small beers? :)
