We found this restaurants by accident, just walking from the bus stop on the way to the beach. We decided to stop in because we enjoy paella and have not found a good one in this fabulous town. We loved it! My husband had the typical paella and I had a seafood one made with pasta instead of rice. Both were delicious. Our friends also enjoyed theirs. They shared a paella for one with an appetizer and it was enough for 2 people. The owner is delightful and the service was very good. We will definitely be back.

We had overlooked this place for a while because it's so small but now that we've experienced its Spanish cuisine (our last day in town), we can't wait to return in September.

First of all, the service was friendly, prompt, and accommodating. The food reminded us of our days traveling in Spain - very authentic. The fabada was as rich as the gazpacho was refreshing and the red house wine was above par.

Don't miss this one! We can't wait to return to try the cocido and paella.

I really wanted to like this place. The owner was sweet and friendly. I don't want to be mean, but I went with a group of 6 and the food was so bad that we were speechless. Not just a little bad. Most food was either way overcooked or dangerously undercooked. The home made ice cream was more ice than anything else. I really hope they get their act together, because otherwise they cannot possibly make it.
