"Great paella for a fancy price"

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

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
