If you like seafood and want to eat it in a suitably maritime setting, then this is the restaurant for you. Loads of choice, depending on what is available that day, all really fresh, and beautifully cooked. Service was a little slow, but they were busy, and looking at the surfers and swimmers outside will pass the time anyway.

I've been there many many times. Always good food, good wine... The place is amazing. See the sun passing over the horizon is always magic. After a tough working day is a good way to stop and relax enjoying nice food and wine. The price is medium-medium/high.... But this is related to the wallet....

Wonderful location on the coast and very good seafood (and wine of the month). Wouldn't hesitate to return and try some other dishes.

This place used to be great but quality has dropped dramatically. Last time we were served plates that were just drenched in sauces and the taste was just boring. More over, if you really care about having a fish display at the entrance, they better look fresh...

We started at the hotel next door so this restaurant was a pleasant walk to get to along the beach. Beautiful ocean view. Lots of locals so the food must be consistently good. Very popular with surfers. I imagine the locals and regulars get special service :) They are always busy so make reservations

The place is right off the beach, filled with locals in a relaxed surfer like atmosphere. Had dinner around sunset time and was just magnificent. The menu is mostly seafood. Had the Tantina Mussels, it was bit to heavy with the cream sauce and the mussels were the small kind. Also had the sea bream, although very fresh, they grilled... More

fresh fish at its best. You can pick which fish you wish to eat by seeing them displayed. cooked to perfection, everything is quality food with a view that will make you fall in love right in front of the ocean. prices are reasonable for the quality. DIVE IN !

We know la Tantina since 20 years and we go there at least 3 or 4 times a year . The position is spectacular and if you are lucky to be there in a beautiful day , as it happened to us few days ago, you will literally love the place . The combination of the terrace , the view... More
