Great seafood in a busy restaurant

They work only till 5 or 6o'clock so in lunch time is very busy. Near beach so view from terace was nice. If you can't get table outside don't worry air conditioning is good inside too. Many people comming, but they always smile, and dont show that they might be tired. You can reserve the table if you call yourself... More

Great value restaurant on the San Juan beach, 15 minute tram ride from Alicante. They specialty is Arroz Domingo, a huge plate of rice with clams, shrimps and "mero" fish covered in home made sauce. Chupitos, gambas a la plancha and croquetas are outstanding and a must try.

I was recommended this place from a colleague who knows Alicante well, and assured me that it was a decent place to enjoy a good rice ("arroz" or simply the local paella), a local specialty. We were attended to well by the staff, and the waiter was a professional, nice and attentive host who recommended a couple of dishes and... More

He forgot to bring 2 fantas after reminding him three times! of which they put on the bill all three after only ever receiving one. He then refused to take them all off the bill claiming that I had 2, I... More

What better than eating a Paella and seafood on a sunny Sunday at the beach? This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend (local resident of Alicante). It´s enjoyed by locals since it's in a quieter area of Playa San Juan, with fewer tourists around. We went on a Sunday in November and the restaurant was packed! The waiter... More

I had terrible service including never receiving our two waters after reminding him once, never getting our second glasses of wine (which is odd since he asked us if we would like more wine), and he missed the flan I ordered. This wouldn't be so bad if he was at least courteous during his service. However, the waiter often tossed... More

Located on the beach so in the weekends it might be very busy so if you haven't made a reservation, make sure you show up early. Great for having lunch, all kinds of sea food but the meat is a lot better then you might expect from a seafood restaurant. Wine is cheap and not bad at all. Nice service... More
