A more formal spanish Rosejat and Fideuia place. The food was actually ok, but the octopus in my starter was not 100% fresh. Portion huge and desserts mediocre. would I eat again? If in Valencia no, in Los Cristianos yes.

If you want something more than the traditional tourist restaurants, this is the place to go. Very tasty food, a bit expensive but well worth its price. Nice and professional staff.

The Paella was really well cooked and the staff were very good at recommending how much to order.It is a 5 minute drive from Playa de las Americas, but it is... More

Although Scottish, I and my 2 Spanish friends enjoyed this restaurant very much. I hope that my Spanish was good enough as I really enjoyed the experience. The food Paella was exceptional and fresh , the wine a delight and the staff were a pleasure to deal with.
