The paella was the worst I have had in all of my weeks staying here in Spain!!! I am really disappointed in what I got. If you want some classic Spanish paella, then do not think of coming here. I know I am not coming back to this restaurant!!!

You must book this. We found it on google and went to check it out. All the tables were reserved for lunch so I booked for dinner. We weren't disappointed ... Great food

It is said that this seaside restaurant offers the best paella in town and it does. It is always crowded but that gives an extra dimension to it. Each time I return to Valencia I hop by

This is a lovely place to sit & eat. Normally there is a line but strangely enough for eating inside. the terrace is fantastic with direct view on to the beach. We were there with 3 small kids, one sleaping in a strolling chair. The waiter ( in jacket) was very friendly, he helped to make room for the strolling... More

This place (I don't think it deserves to be called a restaurant) was very very disappointing! The paella was the worst we've had in our three weeks travelling Spain - it had basically no seafood, was very overcooked and flavourless. The overpriced meal didn't sit well with my friend and I - we didn't feel very well afterwards. The service... More

Expensive restaurant, focused to turist. The service is the normal of this kind of restaurant, smiling meanwhile offer you to go inside, but in the moment that you accept, as a production line....."Fast & food" The paella is really good, but the rest of meals to combine are too expensive in relationship to its quality. You pay for everything, but... More

We enjoyed a simple but delicious paella lunch with a great bottle of recommended rioca blanco. Great service, great beach front location and all for under €70.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend but we were a little concerned after reading reviews here. I can't speak for the negative reviews but we had an outstanding dinner. The paella (seafood) was the best we have had in Spain. The sangria was equally amazing. Now you are adjacent to a very busy beach area. If you want a... More
