We chose La Cuevita because we enjoyed it when we were there in the late 80s. Inside it is built into the rock like a cave. The menu included light meals suitable for lunches as well as evening meals. We recommend the prawns! In general...More

The restaurant had a very local feel about it, with food being freshly cooked behind a screen at the back of the restaurant. The back of the restaurant was the stone cliff, giving the place a most unusual feel. Food and drink were both good...More

We had read some of the previous comments praising the food but criticising the service. However when we went both were really good. Fresh, well cooked food, portion size just right. Friendly, helpful staff, ready to explain the menu and give advice. I would definitely...More

We had diner in La Cuevita, as recommended by a local. We had a tasty salad, chicken and sole. A bit heavy on the garlic 😊 but nevertheless very nice. As the restaurant is sort of built into the rock, it has a peculiar interior....More

No menu on display. We sat down and the waiter shoved the menu at us. He didn't even speak! Needless to say we left and went somewhere nicer and cheaper!!

Booked table on the basis of enjoyable dinner the previous night booked by the walking company with which we had booked our holiday. Perhaps if you know the staff this results in efficient service. Our experience the following night was terrible. It took 90 minutes...More

Ok we came here despite the reviews about poor service, mostly because friends had previously been 3 times and recommended it. We were a group of 7 including our 2 year old. We ate inside which is the inside of a cave so quite novel....More

Several people raved about this restaurant so we booked in last night. On arrival - no welcome, sullen robotic service. Be careful where you sit if outside - you can be blinded by dazzling security lighting from across the road. Food was OK, nothing special....More

You can see that reviews are mixed, our experience was equally mixed. We watched a fishing boat come in, a member of staff collect a box of fish and us select our own. It couldn't be more fresh, almost still flapping. So the food second...More
