We had dinner celebrating my brother 's 50th birthday. Shrimp & fish simply excellent! We had some good wine.

“Gourmet in paradise”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

A real delight with great food, a kitsch but excellently blending decor and the friendliest owners. If you want to spoil yourself with some real top notch food, on a candlelit dinner, place a booking at La Providencia.

“Gastronomic delight”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

La Providencia is truly a delight from the personal attention one receives upon entering, the decor/ambiance and the food. I have dined there many times and have always been pleased with the experience. Host Javier greets each and every diner with a genuine warmth. After you are settled in the wait staff cares for you with just enough attention without getting in your way. When the food arrives we have seen people stand up and take pictures of their plates. Paco is an artist in the kitchen and his presentation of the exquisite dishes merits special notation. If you are anywhere in the area make the detour to experience La Providencia. Call ahead for seating times and reservations - especially during the holidays.
