“How it should be done!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Had many great meals here and word has got round so it's always busy.

Went with the family for an evening meal and were given a great table close to the front.

Food arrived quickly and the portions ewer generous as well as good quality. As always. The menu is pretty varied with lots to choose from.

Had a nice bottle of wine with the meal and the whole experience was totally enjoyable. A good restaurant always seems so simple... it is easy to forget how much hard work goes into it ( until you visit a bad one).


The only shame for me is that they have stopped the excellent breakfasts... But that is just me being selfish as I guess they deserve a bit of time off!


Will be back next visit to Burriana.

“Excellent lunch & great quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Four of us decided to eat here after reading some great reviews on trip advisor, the food was lovely, all freshly cooked, great selection & very reasonably! The owner & his wife are lovely, would definitely recommend this place for lunch, we ate here twice on our trip!

“Really excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Compared with many average Spanish restaurants this serves really fantastic food and some nice little extra touches. Portions are man-sized and cannot be faulted. It absolutely deserves it's ranking and could easily be higher if you factor in good value for money. The service was very good even though it filled up completely while we were there. Try it and you will not be disappointed!
