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

Best Paella ever tasted cooked on traditional wood fire in huge big pans. Traditional food in small local restaurant. Very popular with locals.

If you like paella, a great place to go. We went midweek in July ( they are only open for lunch ) and it was fully booked. Also worth ordering mixed paella in advance when you make your reservation if that is what you fancy. If you are going to be a little picky I think some of the meat... More

We had been led to believe that this was a good Spanish restaurant, that served good paella, so booked for lunch. The location is good, the staff were friendly, and the paella is cooked over open wood fires. But, and it's a big but, the food wasn't very good. Slightly tough joints of rabbit, over cooked vegetable strips, nice bits... More

We have been coming here for 21 years and the service, food and value has always remained the same. For 10 Euros you get a starter of mixed salad, bread and Ali Oli, followed by a meat paella. The rice is cooked to perfection and lovely and crusty at the bottom of the dish. A desert is also included, either... More

We have been coming here for 20 years and we have eaten Paella at various other establishments around Spain but none of them has been as good as the Paella here. There is no menu as such so you get a mixed salad starter, Paella Valenciana and desert. The ridiculously cheap price also includes half a bottle of good local... More
