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...

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.

We shared a mixed salad for starter and had the mixed Paella for 2 and the food was excellent. We had an excellent white Rioja for 10 Euro and the owner / chef brought us a homemade Tiramisu to share without prompting and did not charge us. This was a nice touch and just part of an excellent meal. We... More

This is the restaurant where you will feel as one of your friends (who knows how to cook delicious meals) invited you for dinner. The ambient is very friendly and the food is great! If you like desserts, try tiramisu or natillas, those were our favorites. We went several times and tried many different things, all the food was of... More

Myself and my girlfriend were looking for somewhere to spend the evening of our fifth anniversary and having read previous reviews for this place I detected a pattern; Really great food but very quiet restaurant. Sure enough when we turned up last night (a Saturday) there was only one other table occupied. It's only a little 26 cover place so... More

As we were the only ones at the restaurant we were not expecting great food but we were surprised by the quality. Everything tasted homemade. Albondigas were excellent and we could not stop dipping bread in the sauce. The little squid were very tasteful and the meat was of great quality. A final touch of homemade liquor was a great...
