Views are amazing if you can get a reservation in the patio.
Menu is a little bit short but Rice is very good.
Service was perfect. One of the members of our party was vegetarian and they offered her a vegetarian menu.
In summer reservattion is a must.

stayed at the hotel 2 nights as we walked the cami de ronda trail. as 1/2 board customers we were not allowed to eat on the terrace for dinner. thus we sat in a very warm dining room with splendid views with windows that don't open, doesn't make sense to me. we had a good tuna tazaki, cheese salad, steak and onion rings and shared the creme brûlée. loved eating breakfast on the terrace in the mornings, stunning views, love eating outdoors. average offerings. for the second dinner we had gazpacho, mushroom soup with little taste, and duck legs. service good. loved the town and their beaches.

We have been here now many times and every time it makes us very happy of how child friendly it is. They have a kids corner, a good children's menu and the service is so friendly. The view is stunning, the food is nice and the atmosphere is good. Very relaxing and enjoyable. The place is beautiful and we will always come back.

Great view. Food is Ok. But nothing special. The location is perfect for a dinner setting. Staff is friendly.

We stayed at The San Roc last year for 4 nights and ate at El Balco on one of our nights.We had the taster menu, which last year was superb.This year we did the same,unfortunately the menu was difficult shall we say.It started well with lovely wine to accompany the early courses.The fish course came and red wine was served with it.I am not a wine snob i will try anything but red wine with fish,not good.My fish came and was not cooked.I had to leave 90% of it.I must say the staff were very professional and apologised profusely.They offered to cook me another piece of fish straight away but by then my husband had finished his so i refused.The rest of the meal was very average and i was very disappointed with the whole experience.People do say do not return to somewhere you have thoroughly enjoyed as it will not be as good the second time.We were staying at the hotel and obviously the staff were aware there had been a problem with our meal but when we paid the hotel bill we had been charged full price.I will leave you to decide if a good restaurant would have done that.
