“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Went twice to this restaurant - very reasonably priced - good food, especially the monkfish, prawns and clams (starter). Not as impressed with the paella - maybe just not what we're used to elsewhere. Service good. Would recommend as an affordable, welcoming restaurant.

“Average at best.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We ate here twice after giving it the benefit of the doubt on the first visit. It looks good, the staff are polite, welcoming and professional. The menu looks good and the service starts well with free appetisers. The first instance we had paella, I had been craving one since my arrival in Spain. It was large well presented but did not have the classic paella taste in my opinion, obviously tastes vary. Both my wife and i were of the same opinion that it was more like a risotto. As it was okay and well presented we went back a few days later to try the main menu. I had steak which was very nice but small but my wife had a hake in Roquefort sauce which arrived like something out of an English fish and chip shop, heavily battered with chips.
To summarise the food was well cooked and well presented but not to our taste and overpriced for what you got.

“Good food and welcoming staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The food was great at this slightly more expensive restaurant. Good quality toilets and helpful staff to us non Spanish speakers. Good site, close to local life and air conditioned.

“OUTSTANDING FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

The service in this restaurant was brilliant, we sat outside in the evening and it was lovely. We had a started which was a lot for the price and then we had a paella for two. This was amazing! All of the seafood was perfectly cooked and presented to us in the paella dish before being servd onto the plate. There was so much seafood for the price and it all tasted amazing! Definitely go here if you get the chance, it is however closed on a Tuesday evening which we found out when we tried to go there on a Tuesday! THIS IS A MUST!
