This restaurant was recommended to us by a local friend, and as we were uncertain about the paella, we ordered some tapas and the cordon bleu. The tapas were ok, but the cordon bleu instead of being baked in the oven or fried in the pan - as I think this French classic plate should be prepared, it was fried... More

We visited here for a third time & were disappointed. The paella was delicious, however the restaurant isn't cheap & we ordered a couple of tapas starters, squid & cod croquettes. We were surprised that the squid was frozen (rings in batter) rather than freshly prepared by the chef. Service was ok, although we were the only diners. If we... More

The food was excellent. We had starters of meatballs and camembert followed by mixed paella, which was simply divine- this place is up... More

A small restaurant with a two man team (chef and front of house), we had one of the best meals we have eaten in Benidorm. Really enjoyed the intimate feel as there were only ten other diners and the place felt fairly full and cozy. The host was very attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble and the chef really...

Great little restaurant. Two man team of front of house and chef. Really friendly fellas who got among the tables and really made you feel very welcome. Food was fantastic and the small size of the dining room meant a really nice cozy feel. Visited with family of four and all thought the food was great (mixture of paella /... More

we chanced on this tiny restaurant in the Old Town, and were glad we did. We enjoyed a lovely, very Spanish,lunch menu (very limited choice) at a reasonable price. The owner? was very friendly and attentive, and we look forward to returning.
