Lunch at El Oceano… So good, you won’t want to leave!

Lunch at El Oceano is truly wonderful.  If you’re lucky enough to have the day free, drop in and see what we mean.

We offer our a la carte menu all day, plus the lunch menu which includes a few lighter dishes.  All beautifully prepared and professionally served in either of our indoor dining rooms, or outside – al fresco – on the sunny beachfront terrace.

Awesome Afternoons at El Oceano

After lunch, please feel free to hang around! Enjoy a cocktail from our ‘specialist’ menu in the Martini Lounge, or the terrace and pool area to while away the afternoon! Maybe hire a VIP Sunbed?  Things don’t get much better than this!

The use of the pool is exclusive for hotel residents and non residents with VIP beds reserved.

Extraordinary seafront dining and culinary experiences to make your mouth water!  Delicious dining with the magic of the Mediterranean and awesome scenery.  It’s the perfect way to spend time with friends, partners and the whole family.
