Location is great, food ok

Located at the boulevard from Campello the restaurant has a large terrace with mostly good chairs. Menus are served just as a la carte. Many Spanish guests next to other europeans. We took the menu of eur 15,- and a bottle of rueda of the same price. For both we must say that the taste is good... read 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 stopped here for a quick lunch en route to the airport. Three of the four of us chose the 15 euro 'menu de hivierno'; three courses from a fair-sized list, with the ubiquitous 'one drink' (in our case a glass of wine, of which the red was eminently quaffable but the white absolutely filthy) and toasted (yesterday's) bread, ready...

Looks quite nice from the outside, but the food and service are, if you are really lucky, just below average. That said, apart from La Cova, all the restaurants alongside the littoral are fairly poor - at least the others are cheaper!

This beach side restauarant is one of the oldest in Campello with mature attentive long serving staff, serving high quality Itallian food, the prices aren't the cheapest but the food is worthy of the cost.
