Default A Gourmet Experience at La Balada Del Agua Del Mar

On only my second visit to PP, I went out to dinner with friends to La Balada. The service was excellent and the food although not the cheapest deal on the Pine Walk, was presented well and on a par with much more expensive restos in the south of France. We had three courses, good wines and I was so pleased with the cuisine that I returned a few days later for lunch. It is pleasant to be remembered on your return. On both occasions Lunch and evening the restaurant was busy though not crowded. Languages spoken Spanish French German English all of which nationalities were present during my visits,

Well done Rosie! NOW I recognise it! We have wandered past this many times but never really observed that it is infact a restaurant! I know! Always in the back of my mind something has clicked about there being table cloths on the tables etc, but usually there have not been any customers there as its usually out of season that we wander that way. THIS year we are out in September, so will be sure to have a look in.

As a resident you should know by now that seeing the cat alive and well outside a restaurant is a good sign

Don't think the cat is a permanent fixture. The (I presume) owner, an elderly gent, has been there for as long as we have been going to PP. He was confined to a wheelchair when we passed last week. The surrounding eateries have gone through several reincarnations over the years, but this one seems be in a bit of a time warp.

Very funny SWS, now behave yourself .
To get back on topic, can anyone tell us what sort of food is served here. I am sure a few members would like to know.

I remember when this was still a house and then overnight tables and chairs and a menu appeared outside - I am sure back then they were just cooking in their original kitchen!

LOLs - I knew the cat on the table would strike a few funny bones!!!!!

If nobody does before, I'll take a photo of the menu in October if you can wait that long. I do recall it seemed quite expensive but we may give it a try.

Googled a few sites and it seems that it is generally thought of as being mainly a very good fish based restaurant - hence the cat probably!
Would this be a fair assumption Rosie?
