Great paella!

Family group ate at El Pulpo just two weeks ago. We dined outside. Good value, substantial portions. The chicken and vegetable paella was particularly good.

I've eaten here with my family a few times over the past five years and never had anything other than a fantastic experience. The paella is always amazing and the service friendly and sincere. There's something for everyone on the menu. A must visit if your in the area.

Went here in June. Enjoyed the fast, efficient service. Great choice of dishes. Brilliant lamb main course. Great house white wine. Excellent value. Desserts specials were exceptional. Generous rum measures in the liqueur coffee rounded off a great evening. Would have eaten more than once but discovered this restaurant on our last night. Right in the centre of town!

The nicest paella I've ever tasted. So nice had to sample twice during my stay this year. Dessert specials were also excellent. Lovely staff and setting would highly recommend.

The whole family were impressed by El Pulpo. Most of us had fish except one of our party who is a vegetarian. All dishes were very nicely prepared , menorcan style sea bream and stuffed aubergines for vegetarians were the highlights. We had the best sangria at this restaurant. Excellent service also.

El Pulpo is one of our preferred restaurants in CP. GOOD FOOD GREAT STAFF. A little more pricey than the other restaurants but worth it. In 30 years only ever had one bad meal which was rectified immediately. There's always a good atmosphere even when there are few in the restaurant.
