    DO NOT GO

    There is a chain of restaurants called LA PESQUERA, that may be recomended by the receptionist at the hotel, but the service is awful, and the relation quality price is not very good

    Service is awful slowly, the come always twice to ask you things, and sometimes can be rude....

    UPDATE Change of ownership, some fo them were bought by the actual workers and I was told they were good, others became Italian through a Pizza Chain

    La pesquera: The paella is a Must !

    Paella is a golden rice dish which rates with the best rice dishes in the world. In Andalusía, paella is happy food, fiesta food, served for Sunday lunch or a picnic in the country. Beyond paella are more rice dishes which also make tasty eating.

    Spanish rice dishes originated in the eastern region of Spain, around Valencia, where rice has been cultivated since the Moors introduced it to Europe after the eighth century. The Spanish word for rice is arroz, which comes from the Arabic aruz.

    In this rice-growing region peasants used the grain to cook their midday meal in the countryside. A shallow, two-handled frying pan--called a paella in the local dialect--was placed over a fast-burning fire of wood or dry vine prunings. Added to the rice were other ingredients to hand in the wetlands--eel, snails, frogs, rabbit and wild duck. Seafood was a much later addition, as rice paddies were not near the sea.

  • La Pesquera: The most expensive prawn in the world

    by patsycody Written May 28, 2009

    We ordered lunch on the beachfront in Marbella, a total of four items between two of us. One of them was on the menu as 'Grilled Red Prawns' and priced at E15.60. We asked the waiter to bring all the food together which he didn't seam to grasp. The salad and avocado prawns arrived followed by a grilled red prawn..........yes ONE prawn! and yes, when we got the bill, they charged us E15.60, the remaining dish never arrived.
    The service was below average with the waiters dashing about and getting nowhere on not very busy lunchtime service.
