After having read the advisor comments we decided to have a paella in this restaurant. The seafood was delicious but the rise was tasteless and too dry, too much cooked. The meat we saw in the other tables seemed, on the contrary, good and tasty. Maybe we made the wrong choice. The service was very nice and friendly, the restaurant... More

Well, It was normal at beginning. We were greeted by the stuffs. At the time we pay, things got little weird. The waitress literally throw our credit card on the table. And she walked away without saying thank u or goodbye. It's basic social manner and especially when u r serving people. We didn't appreciate this gesture. It's quite rude.... More

Good restaurant in the center of Alicante. Tapas and meat are the specialties. The paella is ok but a bit dry. Friendly service.

We were the first guests (at 19.30 hrs). The waiter was very friendly. We ordered manchego cheese and sausages for starters and mixed paella as main dish. Quick service, but later on the restaurant got more busy and there were only two waiters. This proved not to be enough... We had a very nice dinner. When in Alicante, I would... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner. Lady serving never stopped, from one table to another offering great service to all! We had the pork and veg paella (not being seafood lovers) and it was very tasty. Only slight negative that the other serving lady took the paella pan away as I was finishing eating and I wanted to mop up the... More

Great place, atmosphere relaxed and fun. Steak and chips wonderful. Even the olives were the best I have tasted in Spain and the biggest! Staff friendly and professional. You must go!

If you want to eat what's in my picture, and drink nice wine, while not been hassled by the street sellers (as you're just one Street back) then you've come to the right place! Tried this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed.. Didn't need to look to long at the menu, we just asked for what the guys... More

Read the reviews and glad that we tried this restaurant. Friendly staff, great food. Mostly locals dining here so we knew that we'd be ok. In a good location - just around the corner from the Portal de Elche (the start of the Rambla). I had salmon and my husband had sea-bass - both good choices. We drank local Alicantean... More
