This is a really lovely, authentic, traditional Spanish restaurant. It's attractively decorated and serves extremely tasty home cooked food and great local wines.
The owner is a real character and staff attentive.
Homemade puddings are a must try! mmmmm.
Reasonably priced for quality and ambiance.

Fantastic Paella! When they had missed our order and therefore our food came very late, they were very apologetic, giving us a round of drinks and Patatas Bravas on the house which made all the difference!

As mentioned by numerous people before - head here for a fresh and flavoursome paella.

We had the lobster paella which we had served in the deeper dish so that it maintained the sauce more than a usual paella. It was so much nicer than the paella we had earlier on in our holiday.

I had the shrimp fritters for starter which I wasn’t as much of a fan of, that’s not to say they aren’t nice, they just weren’t what I was expecting. My partner had the octopus and said it was one of the best octopus starters he’d had (and he’s had a few!)

This restaurant ideally located in the old town on a whitewashed lane just above Orange Square has been owned and run by long time owner Juan for well over 20 years. Deservedly it has attracted a large and loyal following over that period. Everything is quality right from the extensive menu through to the service of the food. The décor outside or in is luxurious without being pretentious and sets the scene nicely. Lovely wine list too. Lots of nice touches to make the whole experience special. A must try.
