Been there for dinner and I gotta admit that the two plates I had we're perfect, although I don't eat fish but this spot is great. The staff was so welcoming and smiley we had a great dinner and above all the bill was cheap. Add to that the owner offered us shots of vodka caramel as a digestive on... More

Four of us had dinner on the last night of our holiday. The paella, according to the menu, needs to be ordered in advance, but it was early evening and our host was happy to provide it. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was a little 'mañana' but who wants to rush a great meal? Quiet location one block back from... More

This was our first visit here, and certainly won't be our last. Wanted a nice meal out as a change to our hotel, and after reading reviews on Tripadvisor, chose the Pata Rusa, so glad we did. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left nothing was too much trouble, the service and food was excellent! We will... More

We ordered both the garlic and the pilpil sizzling prawns and although the taste was okay, they were nowhere near sizzling. We then decided to go for the mixed paella... More

I don't normally write reviews but after last night I felt I had to. To start with the hosts are genuinely lovely people. Elena made us feel at home immediately and nothing was too much trouble. The food was stunning (you have to try the seafood paella!) We kept seeing the chef come outside during service, which seemed odd but... More
