The location was nice directly on the beach. We love seafood. We had ordered grill fish, grill cutlefish, French fries and Gambas pil pil. Gambas pil pil was excellent. The other dishes were average. The service was ok.

A group of friends spent a day at the beach nearby this restaurant and we came here to have lunch and dinner. The food and the service were perfect and the prices reasonable. Totally recommended!

Eaten here a number of times and also enjoyed sunset drinks with family. An excellent location right on El Penoncillo Beach. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The fresh fish is fantastic! Highly recommended.
