The spot is beautiful, nice sightseeing on the sea and the harbour. Huge restaurant, comfortable space. Good service, nice staff. The food is good, any fish and seafood course is top quality. It is worth the visit. Mid range budget depending on the choice.

A very casual, easy going sea food restaurant on the harbor in the maremagnum mall next to aquarium. Paella was delicious. Views are very nice. Service is a bit rough on the edges but they get the job done. Seemed like big tour groups were brought in by buses. Nevertheless the food was solid. I would recommend that they improve... More

Ate here in the evening sun outdoors and watched the world go by. Initial service slow but good thereafter. Had a sellection of taps between 2 of us and we were stuffed. Good fare, excellent location if a bit noisy but then it is a tourist city.

Dined here seven years ago and had a good meal, how things have changed. Paid 82 euros for two meals and a bottle of wine (20euro), the food was disgusting.

Got a dinner here after lot of time we passed by... Looks as most typical tourist restaurant on the sea but you will remember your dinner. We got four tapas, looking at the menu telling "small dishes". Pulpo alla gallega, delicious octopus with potato and paprika. Grilled baby squid with vegetables. Patatas bravas and fried fish. Delicious food perfectly served... More

The food was awful. Couple of seafood bits in a soggy bowl of rice. €37.10 for two people. Few rings of fried calamari €15.85 on a plate with nothing else.Grilled fish very, very dry €23.30 This is a tourist trap of note. Stay away! So many other lovely places to eat in the city.

Great meal and atmosphere, Wowzer location. AAAA ++++. The prepaid trip meals for the visiting school group I was chaperoning were easily upgraded. The staff provided a kitchen picture opportunity for the kids showing how they made paella. The location was walking distance from downtown , on the water. Great staff, awesome meal.

Avoid like the plague - charged us for drinks we didn't order! Told us they only had large glasses when we ordered small. We queried if we'd be charged when they delivered it and they said not. Low and behold we are charged and told he was joking..
