Bit sparse on the seafood

This restaurant has had mixed reviews recently but we still thought it was worth a stab, if only to prove some people wrong. We booked the same day so were given a table slightly away from those with the 'view' that entices people here. It was very busy and contrary to other reviews we didn't find... read more

Have been visiting Cañiz for more than 15 years only for their good paella and that is all. Staff is most unfriendly. One day pets are welcomed an other day, they chase you a way as if you had the flew. The vieuw is fantastic and that saves them. The only reason I and my Moraira friends will never go... More

Far to expensive for over salty food served by ill mannered staff. People queuing in the car park with at least 6 empty tables on the terrace. 25 minutes after finishing the mains a surly staff member came to clear the table, we gave up on dessert and asked for the bill. A further 20 minutes and we got a... More

Been many times before, seafood in the paella has been dramatically reduced compared to previous years. Staff very rude and abrupt will not visit again. Great shame as previous visits have been superior.

This place was recommended to us many times. I have to say they were right about the view, but that is their one and only strength. The waitresses don't even look into your eyes and almost throw the bill at you at the end. The paella did not have a lot of taste and there were a lot of bones... More

Happy to recommend. It makes you smile; looks like fun with multicoloured plates, glasses and candles. Colour is powerful here, smile as can see a large bright clean kitchen, some of the largest chockful paella pans ever and a good menu. Bread is a surprise extra but stunning and rippably fresh. Portions good - but beware if not on plate... More

We always eat here when on holiday. The setting is delightful with a glorious view. Every table has a different tablecloth, differently coloured plates and glasses and there are all kinds of lights and ornaments- I assume the owner has travelled to Thailand with the Buddha in the corner and the Buddhist shrine outside the toilets. It all adds up... More
