Not surprising that this is such a popular venue requiring bookings days in advance. The restaurant has great tapas dishes in addition to seafood. Service is good, staff are energetic and we would have returned if we were able to get a reservation. Recommended.

Tasty fresh fish well cooked with good local wine overlooking the sea. The menu was comprehensive but the restaurant gets busy so go early or late.
