We took our staff out for a meal, which we expected was going to be very good. Beautiful position. We sat on the terrace outside. It was packed. My daughter had been several times with her partner and mostly enjoyed it. We ordered off the main a la carte menu and off the tapas menu, as I was not too... More

We went to this restaurant based on a friend recommendation, the place looks nice and well decorated. We did not want to have a strong meal so we selected the Tapas menu, NO PRICES, but I checked the main menu and expected tapas to be cheaper and smaller... we ask for four tapas and we got very small plates (two...

We visited this restaurant a little nervously after reading the mixed reviews. However we had a wonderful experience, we were wowed by the lovely setting and views and inside the decor was quirky and beautifully done, with so much thought and imagination. We found the waitresses and waiter cheerful and friendly throughout a very busy service. The food was delicious... More

Lovely views over the valley and down to the sea. We were shown to a table with a lovely view but very windy so we asked for an inner table. Starters are enormous, we shared two between four, about right. I had lamb cutlets, delicious, my husband and friend had sole, dry and over cooked. Waitress cleared all plates except... More

A lovely authentic Spanish meal. You need to book as it's popular. Well worth the effort. They are a little slow to start up around 7pm, but you are in Spain. Take it easy!

This was booked well in advance and every table was filled, which tells you everything. The paella with seafood, rabbit and vegetables was flavoursome and cooked perfectly. A good crust stuck to the pan. Mmmm! EUR20 per head.

The staff in the restaurant didn’t want the trouble to work tonight, Thursday 23rd June. Walked in and the place was empty but for two outside tables, with the views towards Calpe, asked for a table and was told, it’s too difficult we are fully booked tonight. I asked in Spanish so no possibility of a misunderstanding. We continued on... More

I am not a huge fan of Paella so opted for something else. There is a good choice on the 'Menu del Dia' and very reasonably priced. The closer you get to the summer the fuller it gets and definitely requires a reservation. Although sitting outside during the day might be a bit cold in winter - it might be... More

This is a place to visit because of its positon situated on the highest point above the stunning coastline with vistas from Calpe to Moraira and el Portet. Food, local cuisine. The paella can be ordered to take away.
