This is one of the best beach bars - and where the video for The Ketchup Song was filmed!

Why do I rave about this place? Well, there’s an effortlessly funky beach bar with a ‘bang-on’, contemporary international menu. Trust me, there are worst ways to spend your days than lazing on the daybeds inches from the shore as you overlook the rock of Gibraltar. And in the evening, some of the coast’s best DJs and cocktail makers arrive to ratch up the proceedings.

Food and drink

There are all the dishes you’d expect, from paella and freshly-caught fish, to Spanish omelettes and gazpacho - and these are always homemade using the finest, local ingredients and presented in a way that’s verging on 'gourmet'.

Ambience

It’s bustling and trendy, attracting everyone from achingly-cool urban professional couples to three generations of local families, all participating in the vibrant atmosphere between the palm parasols and underneath the timber veranda.

Service

They’re not fawning. They’re too busy (in the summer) to play 'suck-up' to the customer. But they’re not rude either.

Location

It's situated at the end of the main beach, La Rada, near Carrefour supermarket - which is also the best place to park.

Price advice

I’d normally expect to pay about 25 euros a head for a two-course lunch with wine.
