This is our third visit to Playa Blanca & we always make sure we eat here at least twice each time. The food & the service is excellent, fillet steak with bearnaise sauce is my favourite main course. Definitely worth a visit.

Looked all over Playa Blanca before settling in this venerable old restaurant. Warm welcome, excellent seafood including the finest toro (tuna belly) I've found since Japan. Superb wine list and reasonably priced. A very hearty recommendation.

I don't remember seeing paella on the menu but I really don't know. They seemed very helpful and I think that if you went in and asked before you were planning to eat, they may.
