Sometimes the best

Have been here for over 50 times and 45 visits were perfect. The few ones were really bad. I am unsure why this is, as the people are the same. So if you had a bad experience you might be surprised.

Great value, great service, the daily menu is excellent and for tourists in all languages....if you were in Northern Europe you would expect to pay at least double. Great location and super ambience.

Still very much a regular feature when we're on holiday and we are still not disappointing. The shoulder of lamb and entrecote steak are still of excellent quality. Ok, the portion sizes may have diminished slightly over the years but that's a sign of the times. My family also loved the crepes for desert. Service is also still up to... More

Best value for good freshly cooked meals. We are in Spain for a month at a time we usually eat there almost every day, and I have never had the same menu twice...the wine is very palatable and the cooking is very Spanish, which w e love to try. It can be a very busy restaurant, but we have found... More

Food and service excellent. Great house wine. In summer the garden is a hidden gem. The menu del dia is always worth a try and is really good value for money. The dorada al sal, a local dish is fantastic here, give it a try.

Looking for a busy, local restaurant on our route between Valencia and Tarragon, we decided to try this place for their 10 Euro 4-course menu. The menu changes daily, and if you have the opportunity do try the stuffed eggplant . . . really outstanding! The red vermouth offered at the beginning of the meal was pleasantly unsweet, and our...

This is just the best restaurant locally, and in terms of value for money, you can't beat it. For €10 the Menu del Dia is 4 courses with a small aperitif and half a litre of wine plus coffee. It varies every day and is a set menu, so if you don't like one of the courses then there is... More

Excellent restaurant-spotless table and a varied menu. Menu del dia particularly good value at 10e-where can you get four plates plus wine and coffee for that amount? We are regular visitors when we are in Spain
