Tasty, classy, service could be a little better..

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Hotel receptionist also. Given I have read this opening line on so many other reviews I'm inclined to think the 5* hotel we stayed at has a penchant for this restaurant. I imagine the line "can you recommend a place that does great paella" is a popular... read more

We came to this restaurant based on the majority of reviews and high recommendation of our hotel concierge. We were greatly disappointed! The wine and starters were great but the paella was almost inedible. We had three different varieties of paella, the seafood was by far the saltiest, the others were also too salty. It was also our most expensive... More

This was our favourite place over 5 weeks in Spain. We both had fish and my cod was as good as I have had anywhere, if not better. We have to give it 5 for the cooking. The ambiance is slightly sterile but the service is very good. My Campari Orange was out of this world. Not cheap but worth... More

This place was recommended to us by our hotel's receptionist as one of the best in town for paella. We were lucky to get a table on a Sunday afternoon without reservation. Otherwise everything was occupied (mostly by locals and interestingly, by families with kids - seems to be a very children friendly place) or reserved and many people were... More

All i pebre, salads and arroz a banda and a paella valenciana. Perfect taste and quality. Good service. Always crispy bread. Extensive wine list with very good choices. Disadvantage: the table had initially been reserved for 4 people, and then for 6. The table was then "upgraded" to adapt six, which was uncomfortable.

This was recommended by the hotel and happily I was not disappointed. Great home baked bread and potato chips which came with my beer…both were all consumed. After a day of travelling a hearty pepper steak with a few glasses of red was in order…a good table on the street to watch the locals get on with their daily routine.... More
