Good food nice view and friendly staff
As we were leaving, a large and angry male waiter chased us (two women) down to yell at us for not paying our bill. He was being very aggressive, telling us that we were wrong and not being truthful. We had to walk all the way back down to our spot for the other waiter to say “oh yes it’s OK!!” Then the man finally allowed us to leave without any apologies. He handled the situation very poorly making us feel very unsafe in this general location. I had a weird feeling about this place when trying to find a table. First of all, this place is GIANT, it takes up most of the boardwalk. When we sat down everything was dirty, all tables near by un-washed, all the menus sticky, and the waitress very unhappy to see us. After a lot of trying to get attention we finally got someone to take our order. Another 15 - 20 minutes passed and finally our drinks (glasses of wine, not hard to pour) came and the waiter brought our check WITH the drinks. We did not ask for it, which felt very rude. We paid and left. Then as we were finally rid of this place the man chased us down.Did I mention it was overpriced? A glass of cava for nearly 6 euro?!
Be careful checking the bill
