This has a nice Seating area indoors but the chairs are quite hard and become uncomfortable. There is some Seating outside. This restaurant is well positioned opposite the beach. Pizzas seemed very popular but it also offers a variety of meat and fish dishes.Thanks for your evaluation, we try to give the best we have every day in our work. Sometimes we get it. Regards and until next time.

Each visit was perfect, the food, price and service were amazing, absolutely perfect.
I recommended this curry house to numerous people including four indian people and four Pakistani people, they all said it was fantastic, so well done Raj - the area director and waiter.

Reviewed By JANE531 - Busot, Spain

We have lived near Bonalba for just over eight years. This is the first time we have
dined at La Perla Restaurant.
The whole experience exceeded our expectations.
There was such a large choice and the food looked amazing.
It was all cooked beautifully and presented in the same way.
My sword fish was moist and such a large portion.
The puddings were devine and deserve a special mention of their own.
If you are ever in the area please give it a try.
We shall certainly be back.

Reviewed By Wm V - Cadiz, Spain

This was our first experience in the area. We were promptly greeted and waited on by a very friendly stay off two. The waiter was very willing to go into granular detail about the ingredients and preparation of the dishes. His enthusiasm was contagious and we wanted to order one of everything. I highly recommend the bacalao con pastel de cebolla, entrecot trinchado, all of the croquetas, coulant de chocolate, torrija, in fact I would go back and order the same dishes all over again!

Taberna To-Bar

Reviewed By eveline44 - The Netherlands

We really love this little restaurant in Villafranqueza. They don’t have an a la carte menu but instead bring a number of small dishes to your table. Around 8 bites and one bigger main course. The value for money is excellent. We only pay around 32 to 37 euro for 2 persons including drinks. The dishes are typically Spanish and taste great without exception. Nothing too fancy, but honest home cooking style. Simple but very good. The place is always full, so it’s recommended to make a reservation.

We booked the table on line and were given a window seat. The atmosphere was lovely and the hosts and waiting staff were excellent. We were the first to arrive in the car park, which is quite tight for parking, however, there was someone waiting in the car park to guide you to safe spot. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for fine dining but not OTT>
