Decent meal

Went here as our our first culinary encounter in Spain. Grilled fish very decent. Staff attentive enough for a restaurant on the main strip.

Four of us got through two bottles of Marques de Caceres and a beer, because we were relaxed and enjoying ourselves at this sea front eatery - one of the few along the Campello beach that (a) has its menu only in Spanish and (b) doesn't feel a need to have pictures of its food for the nervous to point...

Very good service and excellent food quality. On promenade sea front and gets very busy at weekends. Not easy to park at weekends but possible at the end of the prom... With patience and luck.

Visited with family in mid-august for lunch. Menu looked appealing and location is ideal by the beach. Ordered a variety of "tapas" dishes. Overall, very disappointed with the blandness of the food and slow service particularly given the high prices charged. Other local places such as La Cova offer a much better dining experience and much better value for money.... More

Old style Spanish restaurant vying for attention on a promenade that offers much choice and, in two cases at least, now offer so called fine dining. They do seafood well in my opinion - if the fish soup was given to me in the UK I'd be raving over it. Personally and whilst recognising certain shortcomings I'd give this place... More

Restaurante Arrozeria Cavia is one of our favourite eating spots, and has proven to be not only good value and good quality, but has proven to be consistently good over several visits at different times of the year. It is situated on the seafront in El Campello, so diners can watch the locals "rambling" as you enjoy your meal. The... More

Had a meal here and we both enjoyed our selection both seafood and meat. Like a lot of restaurants they offered a set menu selection at a fixed price which included a drink and dessert for 15 euros or you can choose many other items from the vast menu. The food we received was freshly cooked, fresh ingredients with friendly... More

We both had paella has a main course, and finished up with ice cream. All washed down with a bottle of house red at 6 euros which didnt taste bad at all, and two coffees, all... More
