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.

We were taken here by some friends who really like the place and are happy to put up with the poor level of service. They pre-ordered two paellas, one fish and the other meat, which were ok.We attempted to order wine from what looked like a good wine list only to be told that they did have either of our... More

We are 7 people on vacation. Was introduced to this place by a local, and looked it up at Tripadvicer Sooo good taken care of!!! The food was excellent! We will come back. It has a nice view, and the restaurant is full of satisfied guests.

This restaurant has been under the same management for over 30 years and is quintessentially Spanish. Set high in. Small village named Benemarco. It has a wonderful view overlooking Calpe Rock. The choice of Tapas and Grilled Fish & Meat is extensive, but the Paellas are very special. You do need to order the Paellas in advance do be warned.... More

Food okay but expensive. Service absolutly unfriendly. The ordered bottle of wine was placed in front of us - lack of curtacy and friendlyness. Never again.

The evening started bad when I saw that the waitress was mixing the leftovers of 2 bottles of wine and served that to me... My boyfriend asked a Solomillo well done but it was still red inside... He was sick the whole night... Throwing up... We will never go back to that horrible and cold place
