I have read the reviews and with a heavy heart, I agree the staff are a little sultry!! But hey, if you want good food in a great setting in Spain, expect to be served by spaniards, learn a little Spanish and I promise you will find it a totally different experience, the food is fantastic, you just have to...

This is a very pretty looking place with fantastic views, but the service is a joke , you are very lucky if you go as a group for you all to get your food together, the last time we went i had finished before my partner had got theirs, then it wasnt very good

One of the best paella of the region. Hidden in Benimarco, out of the touristic crowd and fastastic views of the mediterranean sea. Traditionnal spanish, as well the service, but with perfection of taste and the charm of real Spain.

House-style kitchen, every table with different chairs and different dishes..... Certainly not the greatest food, but nevertheless a crowded place every night. Don't expect haute-cuisine, just decent local food at friendly prices in a personal setting. We came back for the (very good and authentic!!) paella; and we noticed that many locals have the habit to share some dishes with... More

We (a Dutch family of 4) went out to eat at restaurant Canis on a Thursday night. As the title says: the food we ordered (paella and entrecot) was very tasty and plentiful. The view onto the hills and sea was fantastic. However... The service was terribly slow and unfriendly. The waiters barely spoke English and we barely spoke Spanish,... More

To get on the terrace you need to book at least a few days in advance during the main summer months, and it is well worth it for the stunning views. Inside is also worth it with a very mixed style , as one review said " quirky ". We have been 3 times now over the last couple of... More

We have eaten here several times in the past weeks with 6 people. Every experience has been fantastic, the food is real Spanish and their service is great. Also for kids there is some good healthy choices, which stands out from the usual nuggets and chips at other restaurants. The view is spectacular and the prices are very reasonable. Recommend...
