We wanted to find somewhere in Peñiscola that wasn't too touristy and served good, straightforward food. This fitted the bill perfectly. We ate outside on the quiet backstreet and thoroughly enjoyed good, simple food at a sensible price. The service was excellent and it was really nice to escape from the busy main areas and enjoy a relaxing, authentic meal.... More

We were there for dinner, it's always crowded, hard to find a table. The food was very good, very ,very fresh sea food, but maybe because of all the reviews we read here, we were expecting more...

We had high hopes based on tripadvisor reviews. It would be considered a good meal of we stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around the old castle area. However, we drove from Alcossebre looking for a great experience, and did not find the food living up to it. The interior is quaint (old and homely), but the sangria was watery... More

My wife and I had a excellent fish paella today, the best one we had in Peniscola. Beautiful original atmosphere and friendly service. Also the salad we had was excellent. We will be back!

Unlike the fairly naff, predictable nature of most of the restaurants in Peniscola, Casa Dorotea is homely and a little different. Tucked away in the old town it offers a bit of calm away from the bustle of the hordes in some of the squares and streets. The staff are very welcoming and attentive and dealt with a small issue...

The dinner here was fine. We felt quite rushed to finish our starters as the main had clearly been ready for a while. The food was average for quite a high price. The decoration in the restaurant is nice.

Ate here last night and were drawn in by the homely feel and polite Julio who didn't push us to eat there merely wished us a good evening. We were not disappointed! Julio recommended the rape fish specialty dish and it was AMAZING. Delicious sangria also! This gem is absolutely worth it. Our best meal in Spain!
