We went here with a large group of Spanish family and spent the afternoon. All the choices were good and any that did not eat fish were able to find something to eat. Good wine, homemade cocktails and liquor. The staff looked after us extremely well. We sat outside as Francisco Cano has good... read more

We love seafood, so this was just the place for us. Huge choice, generous portions of everything we tried including their delicious octopus, seafood hotpot, and giant prawns. Reasonably priced house wines and cava, but above all genuinely friendly staff and an excellent, caring chef. You'll find the name of this restaurant on their list of seafood dishes as well... More

1.Very friendly staff 2.Absolutely clean restaurant (very important for us) 3.Everything is "homemade" , not pre-cooked, like in old fashioned good restaurants, not so many of them left, we are talking about quality food, not FAST food. 4. Paella seafood was absolutely gourgeous, worth to wait 25 minutes, believe me! 5. Not overpriced. 6. Nothing to add, they do their... More
