Tasty rice in beachfront

Very good rice, at reasonable price, just in front of the beach with great seaview. Perfect after a morning of sunbathing, to complete the day with a nice paella. They have terrace space and also tables inside (if you have had enough sun for the day).

We enjoyed the paella here. The fact that it is located by the beach makes it more enjoyable. The food and service are also quite good. Recommend to visit this place if you are looking for a place to eat after a day at the beach.

We went for dinner on the evening of the 28th and all I can say is that the staff were very friendly and approachable. The restaurant is situated virtually on edge of the beach, so you can have your meal gazing out at the beach and sea. The food was great and the service excellent at a reasonable price.

We visited the Solimar restaurant on two occasions during May and June 2014 having dined their in the past. The premises are situated adjacent to the beach and though the food is acceptably average the prices are reasonable, the place is clean and well appointed, and the ambience relaxed and pleasant. We would have no hesitation in revisiting again in... More

Nice place just beside the beach. Beautiful view of the Mediterranean sea. Good attention from waiters. Average price with quality, aprox. 25€ each one of us, including wine and paella.

Family run, quality beach bar/restaurant - right on the sand. Very popular. Best to book for evening meals and weekend lunches. Recommend the grilled sole. Probably has the Crema Catalonia in the world!

The food is really below average, nothing to write home about. But the disturbing bit is really about cleanliness. Everything was so dirty and filthy. Frankly a place to stay away from. Setting is nice and personnel kind though.
