Nothing wrong with this restaurant but nothing to lift it above average. Very good, crisp, fresh salad but at €9 it should be. Gambas al ajillo, large prawns in hot garlic and chilli oil were plump and juicy but NO garlic and very little chilli. The delight of this dish, having eaten the prawns, is to use your bread to...

We then... More

The staff are very friendly here and can speak French, English or German if you need it. It has views of the marina and outdoor seating. We ordered patatas bravas to start (€4) and paella valenciana (€12 each for 2 people) and they were easily the best that we had tasted in Spain. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is the best option in this small town. Great food, helpful staff and reasonably priced. We had the seafood paella which was more than enough for 2.

Great food and charming service, the first visit we had the 20 euro menu and could not fault the variety of the food presented and the quality, service always with a smile and with our little French and there little English we had no problem communicating. Second visit we both had steaks which were grilled as requested and melted in... More

We have been there twice now and both times we have found the staff most friendly and helpful. The food on the menu del dia @ €15 was a great selection and cooked perfectly. The mussels where definitely the best we've had in Spain and the paella was a terrific change from the usual 'shellfish & chicken variety with pork... More

Overlooking the Marina, this restaurant was very quiet when we arrived for lunch but rapidly filled with locals. We chose the tapas selections 1 and 2 and were well rewarded with beautifully cooked portions of a good size and brought to table at precisely the right time. An excellent selection which would help non-spanish visitors a lot of worrying about... More
