I was recommended by a local. Arrived fairly early without a booking and ordered the chef's selection of tapas. Exquisite! Every little dish a masterpiece of flavours and presentation. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive, the local wine delicious. Finished with two tiny desserts - the "petit suisse casero" was a revelation - and a glass of sweet wine.... More

Following an absence on my part of more than a year, a recent visit has prompted this latest review; Toni's food just keeps on getting better. He is a talented, innovative chef who likes to experiment (I mean this in a good way). Of course there are staples on the menu – a daily rice dish (squid and artichoke is... More

Recommended to us by Heiki, an excellent choice! with great tapas. We made a reservation, mentioning that I am a vegetarian, and they really 'pulled out the stops', even turning off the floodlight when we asked (not very romantic). A very capable and friendly team - see photo. Oh the deserts were scrummy too, and reasonably priced. Our whole meal... More

Serves fantastic food at reasonable prices. Top quality ingredients, beautifully prepared. 2 courses for 2 plus (plenty)house wine and water was about £40 including tip. This place is always busy so if you want a seat on the terrace you should book. Wine prices are reasonable and the very inexpensive house wine is excellent.

The tapas selection on the menu is certainly the best I have seen at a ludicrously low price. Maybe not a place for a serious night out, but for an al fresco lunch on the beach you could not do better. Suggest you choose your own rather than take their selection, particularly if you have any dietary requirements, but that... More

Excellent range on the menu to suit all tastes , every dish was lovely but my favourite was the slow cooked beef served on a bed of mashed potato . Had a table in the window overlooking... More

Good recommendation spread out quickly. Did not look at the menu but went for the tapas selection. 8 dishes well composed. Excellent personnel told about each dish in Spanish. We took the recommended red wine; the most expensive one. 26 euro was worth every cent. Santa Rosa 2009, Enrique - Mendoza was simply astonished knowing it was a Alicante wine... More
