We were using the recommendations on TA during our visit to Benidorm in late November and we found many restaurants had closed. Fortunately Paneil's was open and I think we got the last table. The restaurant is tucked up a little alley but don't let that put you off. We had the best evening we had had in Benidorm and really cannot recommend this small establishment too highly. The food was beautifully prepared and presented and excellent value. That alone would have pleased us but the atmosphere and friendliness of the staff really put the icing on the cake. Towards the end of the evening the place sounded like a party was going on, not rowdy, just people having a great time. It looks as if we may be regular visitors to Benidorm as we have a friend living there and I am certain that trips to Paneil's are going to feature highly in our plans. Next time we will book first!!

We went to Paneil's on Saturday. We'd passed a few other restaurants and they were very quiet and this was the busiest by far. The hosts were very welcoming and we settled for the three-course menu which proved excellent value at 14€. I had the home-made paté and my husband chose a black pudding concoction. Both were very good. I then chose lamb with minted gravy and he had a rump steak with pepper sauce. There were ample vegetables and a huge dish of chips. After, we had cheese and biscuits and a gorgeous toffee apple crumble with ice cream. We washed it all down with a reasonably priced Sangre de Toro and had a little change from 40€, We'll be back and will recommend it with confidence.

A party of 6 of us went for my mum's 75th birthday. Pre ordered pink cava & a special birthday cake. All we can say is that its the best meal we have ever had in Benidorm! The Owners & staff we so attentive, the food exceptional & the whole experience very enjoyable. Some of us live here & will deffinately be recommending Paneil's to friends & family - but be warned YOU NEED TO BOOK, as it is very popular. Thanks again Sam, Patrick & the staff, for a great evening.
