“one to try a second time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Good food Lovely staff and no push to get you out for new customers even when they were always full. The resturant is on the beachside promanade and you can watch the promanaders going by, you can watch the ferries comming and going from the local harbour.

“Not our best night in this restaurant.Bur we will be back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has been one of our all time favourites over the years.The menu is extensive and gives you a superb option of Tapas(highly recommend) or traditional dishes all cooked very well.(equally recommended if you want traditional tastes).Roast Spring Lamb,Ternera Madrilena are very good.
The staff are usually very welcoming and attentive but for some reason were the opposite.The place was full to the rafters so maybe it was a blip.
Will go again a couple of times.

“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had a mixed paella and a jug of Sangria and the bill was under 40 euros. We had to wait for 20-30 minutes for the paella but they told us that when we ordered. The paella was tasty, fresh, served nicely and roasting hot. I have had fancier paella but for the money, couldn't fault it.

“Great seafood paella!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We always have seafood paella here. it always has loads of lovely fat prawns in it! We managed three last week. The service in this restaurant is always excellent. at the end of the meal you are given a honey rum on ice as a "thank-you" - very pleasant.
Whenever you walk past in the evening the restaurant is always full or nearly full.
We noticed how kind they were - if people were celebrating a special occasion they were given a complimentary speciality ice-cream.
We`ll be back soon!

“Busy restaurant - food awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We visited this restaurant as it always looked really busy. Starters were nice but main courses very disappointing, one person ordered chicken in almond sauce, which smelt and tasted as though it had just been bought from the Chinese takeaway next door, two of us shared a mixed paella which really was not great, it had really chewy bits of tough meat in, not much seafood and the flavour wasn't great.
