We are in Alcossebre and had an evening in Peniscola and after reading Tripadvisor reviews we chose to eat at Casa Dorotea. The restaurant is in the old town and we found it fairly easily.

Hi, we visited again Peniscola this year and wanted to have lunch at Casa Dorotea as we did last year. This time, we wanted to try the paella as we did hear very good about it in there. We really enjoyed that and the wonderful white wine together with the company of the kind staff. I have nothing but to... More

My husband and I came from Norco, California USA, and traveled to Peniscola , Spain. We were taken to Casa Dorotea for la comida. The sangria was amazing, and the paella was out of this world! Julio was an attentive host and of course , the town is breathtaking!! Thank you for a fantastic experience Julio!!! Tim and Susan Ralph

Your first night in the Valencian Country should always be rice. At least, mine always is. The one that i tasted in Casa Dorotea was with lobster. (Arròs amb llamàntol in catalan, arroz con bogavante in spanish). You have to wait for 30' til the rice comes, but when you see it in front of you... difficult to describe in... More

You can't leave Peñiscola without trying the "suquet de rap" (monk fish stew), my favorite dish, at Casa Dorotea! First, some seafood based starters: almejas marinera, calamares a la romana, boquerones fritos... Then, the stew... You won't get disappointed as both, quality and quantity are fantastic and at very reasonable price. The atmosphere of the restaurant in the lane next... More

Points that make this restaurant almost excellent: the 'refreshing hand towel', the delicious ali-oli, the warm friendly service, the location, not too much salt in the food, the free shot at the end of the meal. The food is very good and it is reasonable value for money. This isn't one of the cheapest places you'll find in Peñiscola however... More

We had only calamares romana and mixed paella but both were perfect. It is surprisingly difficult to get good paella in spain but at casa Dorothea they do it so juicy and tastefull. If something, more choises on wine list would be excellent.

Nice setting on small side street within the walls of the old city. Enjoyed tapas which were very good. At 8€ for a bottle of wine and reasonable costs of Meal you can't go wrong. Owner some English and this helped us with our selections.
