We had a very poor lunch here. Lamb chops with barely any meat were overpriced but the plate of Fidueas was disgusting. It took ages to arrive and was not the small noodles we have always had but spaghetti covered in soy sauce with about 4 shrivelled over poked shrimps. I would not eat here under any circumstances.

On the 30st of october, we visited this restaurant. It was very expensive and the food was bad. It was for us the first time, the last time and one to many!

Unless you are Spanish avoid this place. They do not seem to like English people. I found gravel in my ice cream and friends who spoke Spanish said the waiters were bragging about spitting in their food. When they reported this they were ignored. Take heed and avoid the place. The food is rubbish anyway.

Great views of the Bay of Alicante. Lovely walk or bike ride in the sierra. A must if you like to get out on foot and see a bit of countryside.
