Food was lovely, nice and delicate without not having enough. The waiter speaks pretty good English and helped very much. Nice little setting to watch the world go by too. I would come back here again!

Eating on the square or in this case Plaza is always a gamble and normally we try to avoid the overly obvious or tourist hot spots. However on this occasion after reading the reviews and this place being a stones throw from our hotel we decided to give it ago. We revived a warm welcome and a plate of typical... More

Came across San Juan plaza quiet by chance as we were out strolling looking for somewhere it have dinner. Walked into San Juan and saw about five restaurants there. Decided on Pepe el Torroa and must say it was excellent.

We were the first to arrive,8.30 pm which seems to be the time that most restaurants open in the evening here. Started with a Russian Salad Marinara, which is Russian salad with anchovies on a breadstick. This is a local specialty and though Russian Salad is not a favourite of mine,this really works. Followed by Mojama (smoked fish roe) and... More

A busy Saturday lunchtime service and the square was buzzing - so a great atmosphere. The waiter was very friendly and our starter of clams, artichokes, prawns and wild garlic (to share) was excellent. But John Dory chopped up, floured and deep fried until crisp was not a good idea.

We got coupons from an ad in a newspaper and decided to buy since this is one of the most popular restaurants in town. Besides the paella, we got some starters and everything was fresh and correctly cooked. Our paella was made with lobster and it was delicious and more than enough, the portions were huge. The service was good... More
