We walked in all 14 of us for a meal including children..seated very quickly and orders for drinks taken. As we waited bread and dips were served along with a free taster of today's mussels a lovely surprise. The mains arrived we were all very pleased I had the pork loin in a mushroom sauce. My husband had the Moroccan... More

First visit to this restaurant this year and really enjoyed it. Great Spanish food, loved the paella as stuffed full of seafood. Definitely needs to be on the list for a visit

We ordered a variety of food from here and all of it was good. There wasn't much for children to choose from but the waiter ensured that the chef made something the kids would enjoy. Service was great.

I normally avoids beach front restaurants in tourist resorts and last night's meal reinforced that. Average tourist fare, but nothing special. Staff attentive enough

We never go to the same restaurant twice in a holiday but this was the exception. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful and the owners were great. We had sole and sea bream the first time and we both agreed it was up with the best mea!s we've ever had. A few nights later we went... More

Eaten here many times. The food and service is, in my opinion, second to none. You're made to feel as returning old friends whenever you visit, and nothing is ever any trouble. With an emphasis on locally sourced sea food, all well cooked and presented, don't overlook other items on the menu. I think the steaks I've had there are... More

One of the best restaurants in Calpe. Fresh food. Aperitifs are offered with drinks. Children are made welcome . I don't mind paying that little extra for anyone who says it's expensive as I know it's all fresh fish, meat and vegetables. You get what you pay for. Staff are always on hand and considerate. Will be back during the... More

3 stars is unfair for this place. Great location next to the beach. Great atmosphere. Fish as fresh as you are going to get. Tasty food. The reason I did not provide 5 star is because the service is lacking. At one stage the plates were basically thrown down on the table... hmm. Tasty though.

Happened on this establishment while looking for some Spanish Food. Turned out a bit of a winner. Padrons Peppers great, fresh sea bass for two great and a good price €24. The kids choose pasta OK not great. Asked for Sardines as a main. Tasty but tiny. The staff couldn't have been nicer. A quirky bunch but helpful and funny.... More
