“the worse meal ever”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We ate in this restaurant last year so on our return to Alicante again this year we thought we would go back as we had a lovely meal.This was the worse mistake. The food was awful to say the lest. We started with the cheese and ham ok you can't go wrong. My partners mother she ordered steak well done 3 times it went back before it was well done the potatoes which had came with the steaks were hard and cold. My partner and I orders shell fish paella it arrived with 4 prawns and stone cold. We sent it back to be far they did ask did we want something else but by this time the notion of eating had left us. The waiter said they had a very busy day with some event during the day and the kitchen were under pressure. I would rather they had said I'm sorry we are out of shell fish .

“Perfect, friendly atmosphere with good food”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We were warmly welcomed by waiters who were most friendly&attentive&multilingual and served us couple extra snacks/tapas. The food (seafood paella of two sorts plus wine) was delicious and reasonably-priced.

“Nice tapas experience, friendly staff”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We were early so the restaurant was empty except us. A friendly waiter explained many wines and courses and we ordered mostly based on his suggestions, which emphasized local food. We walked away very happy that we chose this place!

“Nice Food and Friendly Staff!!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Situated on a busy-ish street, I have to say that I really enjoyed my meal here. The Tapas were excellent, chose the 5 course menu (for minimum 2 people), fresh and really tasty courses. Our waiter was excellent and very friendly as well, Raul was his name! Likes to practice his English and gives you advice on Alicante! Thanks
