We are regulars at another beach restaurant close by which was closed over part of the New Year Holiday. We had visited this restaurant before but not for some years. Since we were last there it has been considerably smartened up. The views of the sea and mountains are very attractive across the small river bed. The service was good.... More

Not fine dining but nice restaurant where we sat, ate and watched the sun go down. Whitebait was delicious as was Los Sardinales salad.

If you're looking for super fresh seafood like calamares, chipirones,gambas à la planche, almejas ( small clams) then you should check this out. This typical no nonsense restaurant is frequented by locals for decades and it's still as good & vibrant as before. Did I mention the price...this is the best part. Great for families as your kids can play... More

Nice restaurant in the "Alicate" beach. In general the crew it is correct, but meny of them think that they are serving in a 3 Michelin star restaurant: far away from reality. The food is good for a restaurant at the beach. It looks that any time in the past was a better time.

On the beach is the only complimentary remark I can make about this awful "restaurant" We were a party of 8. Half ordered pill pill to start. Expensive tasteless greasy unattractive prawns. Most left them. 4 of us ordered Gazpacho! Even the Colour was wrong. Totally tasteless water. We all had fish as a main course. Six had to return... More

Not only excellent, and really fresh, fish but good value as well; we went with friends - who are regulars - last night. My grilled monkfish was lovely and a really good sized portion, whilst the others had grilled sole, not the normal mini sized ones that you usually get in Spain, but a properly sized sole, all the fish...

This was not the first time we have visited Los Sardinales over the years but we felt that it has consistently delivered and deserves a positive rating. The menu is typical of the chiringuitos along the coast but the food here is extremely well prepared, the portions are healthy and the cost is sensible... meal for 4 including 2 bottles... More

It's not easy to find, unless you come on foot over the beach. Friendly service, very fresh fish, Andalusian style dishes, reasonably priced. Large portions! Entree and main course is almost too much for one person....
