Stopped off for lunch and had a simple meal which was a disappoint. The squid was soggy and unseasoned. The tomato and advocado salad (9€) consisted of ONE sliced tomato and ONE small, sliced avocado with a tiny bit of lettuce. No dressing. The waiter didn't offer any olive oil and our request for some aiolli didn't turn up. After... More

El Penon has a stunning location at the foot of the great rock, which is a major feature of the bay at Salobrena. We had lunch under a shade, sitting right on the sand just a few feet from the waves, which was pretty special. The salads have been variable, and we gave had an okay zarzuela - on this... More

This is a great restaurant right on the beach in the town of Salobrena, Granada. Equally good in summer and in winter, but in summer is a totally different atmosphere, you can can enjoy your dinner al fresco in the hot summer nights, while enjoying the free flamenco show they have at night (not sure if it is every day,...

Restaurant EL Penon has a fantastic situation on the sea and on the rocks, you can also eat on the sand. Specialities are grilled lobster (they show you the lobster alive before the grill) and grilled sardines, but also all seafood plates. A little touristic but it is worth to go !!

Its amazing how you can enjoy the beach and snow all in a matter of minutes. After our visit to Sierra Nevada and snowboarding we decided to head to the beach the next day. We had an amazing array of seafood at this location right at the edge of the sea. Stunning views and amazing food. We recommend this place... More

El Peñon has an advange over other chiringuitos because of its beautiful setting and location, that makes you feel romantic. other than that the food is quite the lacking in originality like all the other chringuitos, since basically all serve the same food. If you are lucky that they have good fresh whole fish, you can have a real treat... More

over a period of a week ate here twice all courses were excellent. May be because we visit Spain so often we enjoy the local specialties and go out of our way to not choose meat dishes. We reserve these for the mountains. We are hoping to take daughter and granddaughter there this coming week if weather allows and can... More

Had a lovely relaxing lunch here of salad and a few drinks. Really nice setting, staff very friendly and good service. Cannot complain about struggling to order in English as their English is far better than my Spanish! that said, google translate always very useful for the basics :)

We went here on a Sunday night, a little careful after the mixed bag of reviews we had read. Service was outstanding, very friendly and the staff spoke some English, enough to understand us, with our limited Spanish. We sat outside and enjoyed the covered beach section. We were offered two appetizers, melon with dades and bacon, and toast with... More

We ate here for lunch. Lovely setting. We had some trouble ordering as my daughter is vegetarian and the waiters just shrugged and said they didn't understand - even when I tried my best to explain in my very limited Spanish. I asked for a cheese omelette but that was apparently impossible (ham yes - cheese no). We waited ages... More
