Much enjoyed two excellent lunches. Innovative menu with shared salads, terrific gazpachos and well thought and prepared meat and fish. The owner, Frank is attentive and passionate about the food and your experience. Next time we are in the area, we will definitely be back.

Went to this restaurant after reading all the reviews in TripAdvisor and was very impressed with both the food and service provided. The food was well prepared and delicious with loads of healthy options to choose from the menu and specials. The restaurant was spotless and the staff made you feel very welcome. Relaxing atmosphere and great service provided throughout our meal, were very attentive and helpful.

For exciting new dishes such as blackberry or beetroot gazpacho as well as fabulous classic grilled meats you must go to El Muelle. Highly recommended. We ate with 4 adults and children aged from 10 - 16 with no one even entertaining anything from the children's menu (although I believe there was one). Absolutely delicious!

We are here twice in a week and both meals were absolutely delicious.

Frank is great with the children and takes the time to talk and explain the choices.

Book beforehand as gets very busy.

Excellent value.

While staying in the delightful village of Arriate, it was recommended that we dine at El Muelle restaurant, located at the old railway station building. Words cannot describe the atmosphere, food and the location. All tables are outdoors, overlooking the countryside where the sunset is beautiful. The service is top class and personal. The owner, Frank, speaks many languages fluently, and he personally explains the menu to each table before each course. The two waiters are efficient and attentive; world-class service. The food.....unbelieveable! Make sure you have a meal there, but be sure to book, because every night is a sell-out! We couldn't resist a second visit!
