“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Fantastic food! Actually the best during the hole stay in Spain (including Barcelona and La Manga)!
Everything was excellent including the owners of the restaurant!;) Our family are quite spoiled with good food and been travelling a lot around the world and we are truly recommending this restaurant. Thanks to the two Spanish men who led as to the restaurant - that was just a coincidence! :)

“Unexpected gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Visited here based on TA advice and was not disappointed. The menu is great. New dishes not seen on a menu before. We're quite adventurios and both love food and we were not disappointed. Mitchelin star food in a bog standard location which I found great. We will def go back before our holiday ends as Paco, wife and sister made us very welcome.. Really recommend it for great food in a walk through street .

“Lovely meal and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This was a truly lovely meal (creative takes on Spanish and international cuisine) at a good price (20€ per head for three courses with 2 drinks and coffee).
The service is friendly and professional.
Definitely worth a visit!
