This is it!! The place you've wanted to find.. PAELLA!

I went here on our last night in Denia. We had been looking for a nice place with the killer Paella that we knew Spain had to offer...we just didn't know where. After reading a bunch of reviews on TA in a cafe pre-dinner , we decided on this place. It was really amazing. I think we lucked out... read more

This is a high quality restaurant with an interesting and very good value fixed price menu. The a la carte is also good and there is a varied wine list with plenty of choice. The tables inside are nicely spaced and service from the 2 regular waiters is good.

We had an excellent meal here in January. Beautifully presented and well cooked food, full of flavour. An extra amuse bouche was nicely judged, portions sizes not too big, which is what we prefer. Plenty of choice of fish on the menu.

This is the kind of cooking where things are smothered in cheese, sauce, oil etc. Often tasty, but too heavy for me in the long run. I've dined here twice and got the same impression both times. The pig's trotters were perfect--better than at La Grande Cascade in Paris--but the mushrooms were... smothered.

We hadn't been to Denia or El Raset for three years. We always try to eat here several times on our holiday and it was as good as ever. We recognise most of the staff from previous visits and the service is always excellent. The food is a little different from the standard, using the best quality fish and meat.... More

We have been coming here for many years and have rarely been disappointed. Attentive service and creative spanish cooking with a good use of local ingredients. Well worth the price.

Start to finish a great meal. We loved this restaurant, the food was delicious The portions are big and very well presented, They gave us some unexpected treats, like eggplant and a cold tuna mousse was soooo good, the desert was awesome. no complaints. The service from beginning to end was outstanding, exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Great prices.

Location cannot be beaten, just on the main promendade with easy parking across the street. Interesting/unusual combination of pizzaria and on the other side of a discreet screen a very good restaurant with an wide range of quality dishes to choose from. Their Menu de Degustacion is really a reduced version of the main A La Carte so up to... More

The attractive white linen clothes on well spaced out tables made you feel they wanted to give you a relaxed experience, and they did. The restaurant takes pride in the food they produce and they have every right to, I am looking forward to again having one of the best lamb dishes I have ever tasted. The friendly and helpful...

I liked the friendly welcome on our arrival and found there were both good choices on the menu and the food was delicious. Can't think of anything I disliked. Certainly would recommend a repeat visit.
