We had dinner here on Saturday night, then returned the next day for Sunday lunch. Seafood paella was very good and steak was melt-in-the-mouth. Seafood soup was excellent, full of prawns, clams, langoustine etc. Set price menus are terrific value.

We happened upon the restaurant at dinner as it was close to the hotel. I was so happy we did. The food was top quality and the service was really excellent. Very authentic Spanish cuisine.

This place is a little on the expensive side for drinks. however if you want a nice meal then this is recommended. I would also recommend you try their special hamburger. It is €6 but you get everything on it cheese, egg, salad, bacon, hamburger. chips are round and flat and have to be ordered seperately at €4 but one... More
