Glad to wave goodbye

Jan 24, 2013 1 Comment by

Sunday afternoon scouring the passeo for a new restaurant serving barbecue seabass. Sunny but breezy, gently blowing the cobwebs away  lovely ! Just beneath Garum in Marbella lies “La ola” suitably busy and the small barbecue boat was already boasting a fine array of  sardines and dorada. 5 minutes later toes in sand we choose our lunch. The only sizable lubina is shown to us but its 50 euro. That’s on the pricey side even for barbecue on the beach but sensing the disappointment in my partners eyes I give the nod and sit back to watch it being prepared and cooked. 30 minutes later our lunch is delivered to the waiting serving table and the show began. Immediately obvious to everyone apart from the waiter this fish wasn’t cooked! Despite his efforts to serve it so the uncooked bits were face down ! We pointed out his wrongdoings and he returned to grill it some more in the kitchen! If we had wanted grilled  fish we wouldn’t be sat on the beach waiting for a 50 euro bill! We ordered fish on the barbecue. 3 times the fish came and went each time it returned the sauce on the potatoes had turned a different colour too !! Yuk!  Wholly disappointing dining experience. Won’t be going back there again….

    La Red is along that little strip of beach bars. That one is really good. The fish is lovely and fresh, I’ve been a few times and never been disappointed
