We have been visiting this lovely Resturant for many years as a family and have never had a bad meal. The food is well cooked and very tasty. Their pate and hot rolls served before a main course is to die for and if you don't fancy a starter this makes a great alternative. The roasted lamb shank is a... More

For the past 15 years or so Mar de Plata was according to many of the locals thought to be the best restaurant in Almuneca, a good steak or freshly caught fish accompanied by overcooked broad beans, carrots and the obligatory patata fratas with efficient and buisiness like service from the mature male waiters. The Desserts were served literally within... More

Seriously, I've been there every year once or twice for 28 years. They have the tastier Gambas ever! With a hint of salt, it melts in you mouth! A bit expensive though, it's the most expensive plate on the menu! The rest is also really good, with fresh fish and seafood! Love it there, one of my favorite restaurants in... More

Wow - where to start. The menu is impressive- all types of fish and Andalusian cuisine. The staff are friendly and welcoming and very knowledgable. We had a delicious local cava from the Calvente area up the road- made in small quantities by a local vineyard family. AS good as champagne! We had the Lubina en sal- for 4 of... More

Lovely presentation, piping hot food and friendly service. Good location. Loads of Spanish people eat there as well as visitors which is a good indication of the quality. Fish was simply amazing

Mar de Plata ("Silver Sea") is a fine restaurant less than 100 metres from the sea. We enjoyed sea break baked in salt. The waiter showed us the fish first - beautifully fresh - then when it was ready he removed the salt crust and filetted the fish at our table. It was delcisous with fried potatoes (we are British...
