Before it was better

We visited the restaurant several times. Their specialty is fish and seafood. I would rank in as 4 but the last visit was not so good. Arroz a banda was very salty and the mussels were not so nice as you would expect in October. Perhaps it was just a bad luck.

We had house salada, grilled calamari and rice "del señoret", which means rice cooked with all the good fish stock and with small and clean of bones pieces of seafood.... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for years now and I continue to say they do the best rice I've ever had! It's so delicious and will keep returning for that reason.

La Peña is a classic Campello restaurant, not particularly attractive in decor (has remained with the ''boat'' and ''fishing'' motives forever, but you can guarantee one of the best rice dishes (paellas) in Alicante!! Starters were some great Spanish ham , ''Denia'' shrimps (''gamba roja'' great size and grilled to perfection) . As a main course we had two different... More
