We came into El Tio around 9:20 and at 11pm we were still waiting to get our plates cleared. We were warned that the paella we ordered would take longer than the usual 25 minutes, however didn't expect it to take over an hour.

We went as a family as close to our hotel and my son wanted Paella. There is limited kids menu but the food good and served fresh when ready. The Paella took longer so they served my son with some serano ham while he waited.

I Visited this restaurant with three of my Swedish friends and we we're all very satisfied with the food and atmosphere of this place. The owner(?) seems to take real pride in his profession and you could tell by the way he talked and moved that he was enjoying himself this evening; As were we! :) Excellent food, good wines...
