My son found this place near the water. We had hiked down part of the Camino to get to town, and goal was to find a place that cooked fish over charcoal. Excellent food and great value. Also good location near water. Will be back next year! Loved the grill cooks - so much fun!

The location is excellent, right a several metres from the beach.
We ordered two different whole fishes and when they brought it to our table the both dishes had the same presentation with some cooked potatoes and a lot lot of vinegar and burnt garlics on the top of the fish??
I’ve tried my wife’s fish and it was the same taste as mine... far too many vinegar and really it wasn’t our cup of tea sorry. And I think it’s no one taste actually...
We asked for two different whole fishes on the grill and that’s not what they prepared for us...
So just the poor rate as we didn’t like the meal at all. Also these two fishes were too far expensive for what we received, better said just a vinegar and garlic taste filling your mouth... NO WAY...
Not a good experience and waste of money as we couldn’t eat it...
This part of coast and Basque Country is famous for their fresh fish, seafood and excellent meat but not prepared with so many garlic and vinegar for the God’s sake, it just kills all the fish flavour so finally you don’t know what you eating as everything taste the same...

Food is great. Some peculiar rules about what you can and cannot have as una bebida with the menu....cava OK...coca cola or aqua con gas not. Otherwise enjoyed.

We were reccomended the town by a friend as it's very pretty. We got here at 3pm and needed to eat. We were lucky and parked on the puerto. We chose this place because it was on the beach and was busy. We were not dissapointed. Very friendly and helpful staff, full of locals and Spanish tourists alike. We had the menu for 30€ each. Prawn starters, steamed mussells and a huge cod to share. Spectacular. Thank you for a lovely visit.

Good size inside restaurant with beach views and loads of outside seating - some of it in the shade. Alongside the parking and the harbour with easy access to the Old Town, which is worth a visit, especially the small chapel in the arches. Possible to just have a drink, a snack, something more substantial or a full meal. Your choice. Decent range of wines and beers. Plenty of staff to keep things on the move. Well patronised. Lively and relaxed at the same time.
