I had the feeling that this is a Mom and Pop run restaurant with Mom (and the help of two very pleasant young ladies) serving and Pop in the kitchen. They certainly did an excellent job. Super service and great food, especially the tapas. When we left "Pop" (the chef) was taking a break from the kitchen and we took... More

To start with, the staff was friendly and the food was okay. However, we ordered two starters and two main dishes. The starters were served very quickly, which was nice. But then, 3 minutes later, one main dish was already put in our table, while we had not finished our starters. It took another 10-15 minutes before the second main... More

Traditional spanish seafood restaurant. Not expensive. Big portions. Very friendly stuff. It is always my choice to stop on the way from Valencia to Barcelona.

Nothing wrong with this restaurant but nothing to lift it above average. Very good, crisp, fresh salad but at €9 it should be. Gambas al ajillo, large prawns in hot garlic and chilli oil were plump and juicy but NO garlic and very little chilli. The delight of this dish, having eaten the prawns, is to use your bread to...

We then... More

The staff are very friendly here and can speak French, English or German if you need it. It has views of the marina and outdoor seating. We ordered patatas bravas to start (€4) and paella valenciana (€12 each for 2 people) and they were easily the best that we had tasted in Spain. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is the best option in this small town. Great food, helpful staff and reasonably priced. We had the seafood paella which was more than enough for 2.

Great food and charming service, the first visit we had the 20 euro menu and could not fault the variety of the food presented and the quality, service always with a smile and with our little French and there little English we had no problem communicating. Second visit we both had steaks which were grilled as requested and melted in... More
