Just a two minute walk from La Jabega, on a side street, run by a friendly husband and wife team. There is seating both inside and out, I would recommend booking as there are not many tables, but if you get a table you will be served with amazing, authentic local dishes, very good selection of wines and great waiting...

Great atmosphere out of season where the staff come and talk to you about every detail of food on the menu. When in season this is not the case. It is clearly obvious the staff are stressed due to the business but was still disappointed when they said inside was air conditioned when it clearly wasn't after there was no... More

I ate paella de mariscos, and it looked very nice, and tasted great. Staff was very friendly. Downside, the pizza that my son ate wasn't that good, cuatro quesos. It was ordered from the childrens menu, but it was not good at all. 4 persons tasted it, none of us liked it.

We had a very good experience here with the family, found the staff to be very friendly and they spoke very good English. Ordered the Spanish Bravas and the vegetable paella, they were both delicious and really good portion size. Would definitely go back again

Really enjoyed our night here and intended to go back but never got round to it. The paella was fantastic and the evening special of sole in prawn butter amazing. The staff and owners are very attentive and friendly and always manage a smile, the only small gripe I had was that despite pre ordering the paella and being there... More
