Restaurant with charm and qualities

Excellent food and service. Friendly atmosphere. Quality/price is really good(around 20-25 perperson but the food is really really good). Must try caldereta de rape and empanadillas caseras.

We were really disappointed with our meal at Casa Dorotea. We arrived half an our late due to our train being delayed and we were met by a very rude and grumpy waiter (owner?). Despite explaining about the train delay we were hurried and hassled into ordering because the kitchen was about to close (despite the fact that the restaurant... More

We tried the caldereta de rape as main course and it is just stunning. The location is beautiful in a narrow street. In general, good value and friendly service. We will definetely go again from Manchester.

Had chiporones and arroz con bogavante here on Saturday...absolutely delicious! Fresh fish, rice cooked in the stock of the gods, wonderful ambience, great service...my favourite place in Peniscola! Actually don't want anyone to know how good it is but it's such a gem that they deserve it.

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!

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
