“Good find”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Decided to start exploring again as we have visited most of Torrevieja's restaurants in the last 12 years so dialled up your recomendations in towns close to us on Orihuela Costa and this was one of them.
We went for a Menu del Dias and we were not dissapointed. Good range of starters and mains with nice wine. The service was impeccable with each serving, bread alioli, salad, starter, main, postre and coffee coming out like clockwork, neither too soon or too late just spot on.
I had for starters cream of Mushroom soup and with croutons and this was definitely not out of a tin, then fried whiting , 6 large whitings in that very light batter the Spanish excell at. A few chips and some fried veg..
For desert Pan de la Calatrava then coffee. All for 9€. We are going back at the weekend for and evening meal and will report how we get on.
all in all a nice experience.

“Friendly ambiance, great food!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

The restaurant bases its food on local supplies. Great calamaris with aioli! Fresh fish cooked perfectly, not overdone. Good portions, tasty bread and a mean gin and tonic! The house wine goes down very well too.

“Good honest value for money food.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Just returned from staying in a great little village called Torremendo. Our neighbours recommended we try this place and we weren't disappointed! Located about 6km away from us in San Miguel de Salinas. Very warm and friendly welcome from the staff. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and decor. Varied menu available and also a very good value daily 3 course fixed menu for 13.50 euros. All fresh produce and very well cooked and presented. Drinks not dear either. We went mid-week and it wasn't too busy (although we went quite early!) Started filling up a bit by the time we left. All in all a worthwhile visit and would definitely return.

“Excellent Spanish Cuisine”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

We were introduced to this restaurant by friends who thought we would enjoy it and we certainly did. The menu del noche was varied and a reasonable price and the food was beautifully served. The owner was very attentive and we enjoyed the experience and will return again and again
