We chose this restaurant following a recommendation by friends; they told us that if you want a good Paella then this is the place to go. We pre-booked a table for four and at the same time our type of paella, this being a mixed one of fish and meat. On arrival we were shown to a window table with... More

We were introduced to L'Era in Parcent by local friends whilst on holiday in Javea. The restaurant is tucked out of the way in the narrow streets in a village called Parcent which is just over 30 min drive from Javea. Booking is pretty much essential, particularly for Sunday lunch as the place is alive with lively chatter from the... More

we have not visited for some time. as normal the food was good but there was a lack of a feeling of being welcome. the attitude of the servers seemed like they did not want to be there. previously this was not the case and it spoiled the lunch.

If you want to eat an excellent paella you go to L'Era in Parcent. Only open for lunch, very busy , so worthwhile to book ahead. Great service, great portions, great taste! For a great (small) price. Highly recommended! And their deserts are a must, try the flan caramel or the almond cake!

Regularly 3-4 times per year visited this restaurant as a rule in a large company. This time has shown the way to the restaurant next our friends (their total number rose to 30). As usual everything was great - ordered paella Valenciana as usual, chicken liver and squid cooked in the oven. Plus vegetable salad, white vine, water, sweets, coffee.... More

I am always surprised that this restaurant receives such rave reviews for its paellas ( there is nothing else for mains) . If you have not tried other restaurants I can understand you might feel this is the tops and certainly the atmosphere is good being provided mostly by spaniards who pile in . However having given it at least... More

We recently visited this restaurant for the second time for Sunday lunch. It is necessary to book the table in advance and choose your Paella. Remarkable value for money and a great atmosphere, albeit a little noisy with all the locals.

Wanting to take the grandkids to experience some authentic Spanish paella we booked a table, which I was told is compulsory at this restaurant. For me eating out has always had a familiar pattern, walk in, sit, down, get menu or listen to waiter gabble out the days specials, (at this point understand the pricing,) choose, eat. Not here, no... More

Not just for the wood oven paella, but for a piece of Spanish culture. Even though most Spaniards know how to make paella, they reportedly come here for lunch. Word has it that the owners won the lottery but decided to keep the place open just to keep serving people. From a marketing standpoint this is an ideal business. Open... More
