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.

My wife and I along with another couple from New York found our way to this intimate family owned restaurant on the Carrer St. Vicent ( a rather steep climb up the lovely streets of "old town" Peniscola.

casa Dorothea is a small, family run restaurant in the old town, very pretty and relaxing. We shared various tapas and a salad to start, paella marinera, which was delicious, containing monkfish and artichokes to give real flavour. This is one of the best restaurants in Peniscola.
