The owner of the restaurant is also the cook and he prepares every dish in another refined way then in another Spanish restaurant. When we order , we are always amazed what we become on our plate .

This was our second visit, and much more successful than the first - but only because we were a party of four this time, all with adventurous tastes in food. (On the first occasion we took an elderly relative, whose tastes ran only to plain British food - a mistake!). We booked a couple of days beforehand, and perhaps as... More

Without doubt in our minds, this is the best restaurant in the PDLA/Los Cristianos area. There’s an imaginative menu, top class ingredients and a kitchen that knows how to cook and present a dish in a modern style. But, it can also take those top class ingredients and present them seemingly simply. As in a bowl of clams, served with... More

Paella, salmon tartar and delicious white wine! It is considered expensive but the quality of food and obviously the wine is more than worthy to try.

Food was good, wine selection was excellent, service and mood was o.k., we will come again! The location is not easy to find, but with Tripadvisor no problem.

We came for the michelin guide recommended Paella, which met our expectations, but we had excellent strters as well: foie gras, tartare of tuna, scallops with shitake, octopus all very well presented and tasted yummy. The place is specialized in ricedishes, but I got a steak tartare wonderfully prepared, and another got a regular steak with mushroom sauce. Good winechoice.... More

Do you want to a place where the manager and the waiter are arrogant and they make you feel unwanted from the moment you enter? Do you want to see the manager and the waiter grumble and mumble with contempt about you and your guests? That's the place then. Obviously I don't want to rate the food after this experience....

The best Mediterranean specialties, paellas, wet rices, rossejats (fines noodles), fideua, fresh seafood and fish, succulent meats a great wine list. The Rincon Del Arroz is a charming air conditioned restaurant with relaxed rustic charm that seats up to 45 diners. The weekly lunch time ambiance is more inclined to business, the evenings however are more intimate and the ideal place for a relaxed dinner.
