This is one of the best Paella in town. Great place with very friendly and amazing staff. The chef is very welcoming and the Cuban king of cocktails will surprise you with his recipe's .. Will be back again for sure

Now I want to start off by saying the main reason am giving this place a 3 instead of a 4 is because of the amount of time it took to serve us. We turned up about 7.30pm and their were a few tables dining outside and we wanted to go inside, the friendly hostess explained I large party of... More

There are so many good things about Pata Rusa and it's firmly established as one of our favourite restaurants on the coast. Great location and in the evening the atmosphere outside is great as the road is really very quiet. The food is excellent, in fact I'd say it's the best paella in the area and the fish is always...

Food was very good, I ate entrecote with mushrooms and I really like it. First we got "pan" and salsa -sauce. It was just normal bread, but when we check bill, we saw that pan and salsa costs 14 euros! So 3,50€ per each. That is why I gave only 3/5.

Read the TA reviews and decided to give it a try. Looks like just another tourist place on a tourist street, but I was impressed by the staff and the service. The food was good (the fried whitefish were very tasty) and everybody was friendly and was having a good time. I'd definitely go back.

Another couple of visits to one of favourite places in Los Boliches. The patatas bravas was superb as was the calamari. Mains ranging from fish, paella,pork skewer, and sirloin steak were all tasty. The only thing was the steak was slightly over cooked . Service as always is excellent Elena and her staff can't do enough for you. And Oscar... More

Try it and you'll like/love it. Especially the fish paella is fantastic but also other dishes are unique. And after dinner a sweet surprise ( no, not the bill:-))

I booked a table for 16 hungry golfers after reading trip advisor. We arrived and the outdoor table waiting for us and a very happy owner welcomed us (I suppose it's a bit of a gamble taking a booking for 16 over the phone !) The area was full of locals which was a lovely change from the touristy 'fish... More

We've visited this restaurant with our friends: 4 adults and 3 children. Very friendly and good staff (waitress Elena and barman!), delicious seafood, good sangria, not bad white wine. Good desserts and finally a little bonus: caramel vodka for us and smth sweet drink to children. Everyone was friendly and attendant to children who are a little bit crazy in... More
