A Welcoming Restaurant with A Good Menu

This restaurant is in the centre of Villajoyosa near the underground parking on the beach side. We ate there twice, once for a light lunch and then for dinner on the following evening. The owners are very friendly and the food is varied and plentiful. The location is good, right on the beach side... read more

This is a nicely situated restaurant on the sea front in the old town.We started with the George Harrison salad with salmon to share; it was a substantial and delicious salad, easily enough for two. We would recommend the alioli and bread to accompany the starter. We then had the tagliatelle with chicken, mushrooms and garlic and blanco y negro-... More

Part of the colorful Moorish quarter, in front of the Mediterranean sea with a few palm trees. Staff with multilingual skills and knowing to make you feel welcome. We really like it a lot.

I had a dinner with my girlfriend there and we can ensure that paella was really great. The chef is Spanish and the staff excellent, as usual I suggest you to don't try things in a wrong site (e.g. don't eat pizza in a Spanish restaurant or in a spanish restaurant with an italian name or food in the menu,...

After reading reviews it was disappointing. Sardines were undercooked and stuck to the bones and we had to send back, these were re cooked and come back really oily with no apology. Main course, chicken wasn't cooked and pink on one end, they cut the pink bit off and brought it back! Brie salad was advertised as a vegetarian dish... More
