Visited during Benicasim Festival

The food was nice and a large selection to choose from which helped our group. From traditional tapas dishes and paella selections and pizzas for the less adventurous of us. The waiter's english was limited, but with a little spanish spoken there was no problem. Prices seemed in line with other... read more

Ate here last night... We had fabulous fresh anchovies in a tomato salad, and beautiful prawns for starters. Then the ravioli and a calzone for our main course. The food was really tasty and we would definitely recommend this Italian to anyone. The service was good and we had 2 glasses of house red.. It came to €46 which was... More

Food was not great and was pricey. I had a meal that seemed to be frozen inside - certainly very cold so maybe cooked from frozen. Would not return or recommend based on the quality of food. Service was okay.

We went to the restaurant around 9pm to have a typical spanish dinner with tapas and wine. Quality and taste of all dishes was good. The pizza selection looked good too with a lot of choices but we did not try this time. The Rioja for 15 € a bottle was a bargain and blended very well with our tapas.

High quality Italian food in a small Spanish town, our waiter spoke perfect English and the food was very good and well priced, within walking distance of Camping Benicassim

Were looking for a restaurant that suited a very conservative eater and also others who wanted to try some more creative dishes. This restaurant was ideal. A pizza for the conservative eater and tapas of prawn lollipops and veal filled pancakes for the rest of us. Service was good and prices reasonable

There must be some very good restaurants in Benicassim if there are 16 better than this. The decor is ultra-modern, the kitchen and toilets spotless. There is a large, varied multi language menu with pastas, pizzas, meat, fish and rice dishes available and on the many visits we have made we have never been disappointed with the quality and presentation....

Visited on consecutive days during the 2013 Benicassim Festival (FIB) with large English party of more than 12, returning due to quality and value a year after first visit during FIB 2012. Wonderfully accommodating to our relatively large party with limited Spanish skills, moving tables to allow us to sit together outside in shade. On every occasion staff were helpful,... More
