Great tourist deal

Choose from the menu but with a great discount with starter and wine or beer as well a salad for the price of a normal pasta or pizza.

In 1 week we visited here twice for an evening meal, once for lunch and once for a takeaway - the food is excellent, the service is very good and all family members from 4 years to 57 years were left feeling satisfied.

A very reasonable price; food was hot and tasty. Menu not huge but very good value for money and with friendly, welcoming waiter service.

It is now Paulu's Piri Piri, but I think it is still owned and run by the same people. We were staying just down the hill from this place so walked... More

Pasta and pizza, delicious. As are the salads and soups. Tourist menu is great value. Can never eat a pudding after as the food is so filling.

Excellent Tourist menu - why bother with anything else. Starter, pizza or pasta, huge bowl of salad and a glass of wine 12 euros. Food great, staff excellent - best value for money anywhere in resort. We just love it - and will go again and again

Our first night out for a meal and I had found another italian on tripadvisor that we wanted to visit. We got a taxi from our hotel and our taxi driver said we should go to Paulus instead. He was local so we took his word for it. The restaurant was really busy which was a good sign, The menu... More
