We went there in January , place was empty , my husband had the chicken and chips, my son and I had the sea food soup, was okay nothing special, followed by the paella with rabbit. It was dry and after reading the reviews we thought it over rated and over priced. Would not go back.

My husband found this lovely restaurant about 4 years ago, he had such a warm welcome and was taken such care of, along with the excellent food he just couldn't wait to take me there. Once he did I understood exactly what he was talking about. The food is excellent, no matter what you choose to have. Oscar and Elena... More

It is always a pleasure to eat at Pata Rusa, a true gem of a restaurant nestling in a side street just off the Paseo Maritimo Rey de Espana. You will be assured of a very warm welcome from the owners, Oscar and Elena. If you are partial to a cocktail then I recommend the strawberry daiquiris. On our last... More
