It’s a no for Volapié

Nov 14, 2015 No Comments by

Whilst walking through Puerto Banús the other day, my friend and I came across a sweet little restaurant which looked quite like a fancy tapas bar. I loved the rustic decor and over all look of the place, with its wooden blinds, beer barrel stools and bottle decorations on the ceiling. We had a look at the menu which displayed a lot of Barbate tuna, this always reminds me of going to Zahara de los Atunes in the summer where they sell the most amazing Barbate tuna in almost every beach restaurant – so they won my vote straight away and we sat down.

It took a while to get served, considering there weren’t many people in there, however when we finally did it wasn’t long before we received our order.

To my disappointment the tuna wasn’t anything like I had imagined – it was more like tinned tuna than lovely, fresh, pink tuna and was served with just a simple green leaf salad. We also had goats cheese on ‘french bread’, which is another favourite of mine however it was served like cream cheese and was spread across a thin piece of hard bread.

The prices however were not expensive at all, so I ignored the fact that the dishes weren’t as high quality and tasty as I had expected and tried to enjoy my meal… Until I found what looked like jelly all around the tuna, as if it had been preserved somehow in goo to keep fresh. This did put me off my meal, which I feel is a big shame because the place really does look lovely.

On the up side, their wine was nice and extremely reasonably priced, especially for Puerto Banús, so I would happily stop by again for a glass or two.
