If you're looking for a small, friendly, delicious restaurant with an amazing view then Dibble is the place. It serves Tapas food, but also has special dishes such as Fish and Burgers if you wants a whole meal. I've been here several times as the food is just divine, and with it being right on the beach front there is... More

Had a good tapas meal for 2 with 6 dishes, one of which was their famous potato wedges (a must order) There were no fish options which was a little disappointing however the dishes we chose were excellent. Service was good and the kitchen is visible from the restaurant.

Fabulous location with fabulous food. Great menu. My husband had the lamb and said it was the best lamb dish he had ever had. Considering he is Welsh that is a huge compliment. Thank you.

Tapas style with other options at times too. Not open many evenings which was a shame. Right on sea front and can sit outside. Small inside. Lovely food and friendly service.

Been here a few times over the last few years with a group of friends so booked well in advance and will keep returning. We order a whole bunch of tapas and graze our way through the evening with bottles of wine. The potato wedges are enough to come back for in themselves, and could gladly eat a few plates... More

If you only eat out once on holiday i'd recommend here. One of the best meals i've ever had and reasonably priced. Staff are friendly, the atmosphere relaxing and an amazing view. Great for vegetarians.
