I was recommended by a friend to go here and it didn't disappoint. We ordered 3 entrees (small fish, calamari and garlic prawns), and the mixed paella. The food was good, particularly the small fish and paella. It's a bit pricey but I think it's worth it. Further, their service is very very good.

We were recommended this restaurant from a lot of people; taxi drivers, locals. We decided to go to see what the hype was about and while the food was good it was a little pricier than other places.

The venue is widely reported in all the guides, nonetheless it is also very popular with the locals, and it’s no coincidence. My effective rating would be 3,5. We sat inside as it was a bit... More

We really enjoyed a great paella lunch here. Friendly service in what was a busy outside terrace. We came off the beach for lunch and found this restaurant thanks to Tripadvisor and a local recommendation. Many Spanish families here and we could see why. Well worth a visit.

A great big dish between two was moist, fresh and had lots of sea food! We had a great lunch with a view of the beach and sea. You cannot beat it
