This restaurant has fish, cold salads and ceviche in a buffet self serve style where you pay by the kg. You can also take a ticket and order something cooked fresh and wait a few more minutes. I had the fish of the day and it was not memorable, served with tasteless rice and 2 spears of broccoli. The service... More

A good place to get your sea food fast. You have a variety of cold dishes to serve yourself and you can also have cooked meals. It can get reakky criwded during the summer, but it's fast and you get to eat really quick. Prices are cheap also.

I had "rabas de calamar", not so good as they weren't crispy as I like. My husband had a mix of seafood salads which was very fresh and tasty. The best thing of this place is the view. It's worth paying at least a box of rabas or fish and chips to enjoy the night views of the yacht port... More

With a very good level of quality, you can eat a lot of hot and cold dishes, all freshly prepared. You can either take away your selection or sit inside or outside to have your meal. No comfort, but with a nice view to the harbour at very convinient prices!

The Artico is right at the port where the fisherman bring in their catch. The seafood variety and options are great, and the paella is fantastic - made fresh a couple of times per day and goes fast!! Casual dining. Superb views from either down- or up-stairs! Highly recommend eating here or buying fresh seafood to go!
