This is our favourite beachside restaurant, since many years. We visited 10 Jan to discover there has been a fire and it is currently closed. The nearby car park attendant said it happened last week, overnight, and thankfully no one was hurt. He thinks the repairs could take 2-3 months. If anyone has more info, please post. Much missed!

We went for lunch yesterday (Sunday) we have not been there for a while and we were very pleasantly surprised, we had a lovely Sirloin steak, cooked perfect, they also did a very nice Tinto Verano (not the bottle stuff). Hope it stays as good as it is now as we live locally, very handy.

Enjoyed lamb kebabs and fries with a glass of wine with a lovely view of the Mediterranean on a warm, sunny day in mid October.

Delicious fish, had sardines at lunchtime and visited again for dinner one evening. Had the largest prawn cocktail ever followed by really tasty sea bass served with Mediterranean veg. Very pleasant welcoming staff. Beautiful sea view as restaurant right on beach. Would definitely recommend.

We have used El Bombo for many years and now it is one of the best places to eat. Good food, good prices and great staff. (Although they can get a bit harassed when really busy during the summer !!) The evening is best for their large steaks on the barbecue, wonderful flavour. Fish is very good and over the... More
