“A true gem!!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We went to this restaurant by accident for lunch. We had arrived in Calpe by boat and after being approached by ALL of the restaurants to the left of the harbour (who seem to think that everyone likes seafood), we decided to turn left on the road (having walked back the way we had come) and the restaurant is found on the right hand side after about 50 meters. It was about 12.30 and there was no-one else there but we decided to sit down anyway as it was hot.

The menu is extensive, the portion sizes great, the flavour good, service excellent and price fantastic. We had 2 spring rolls (large), a portion of egg friend rice, a portion of plain rice, tai duck, sizzling chicken, 1 x ice cream, 1 x coffee and 3 small beers. The total bill came to 18€. We didn't eat dinner due to the large amount of food. The food was from the menu del dia, but the choice was fantastic. There were 20 mains to choose from plus other tai dishes which were a little more expensive. The whole experience was great and is well worth a visit.

“Excellent value good tasting food”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Well what can I say! 8 of us ate at this restaurant and ordered from the set menu. Each had a 3 course meal with 1/2 a bottle of wine each or water ( for the children if course!)
Food was lovely - spring roll or soup for starters, loads of main courses to choose from; pork in spicy sauce, chicken with cashews and ice cream or coffee to end. The wine was good too.
ALL THIS FOR JUST UNDER 60 Euros! Can't beat that!
Ps One added bonus was that kids could get on wifi and go on Internet (quickly!) to get emails etc
Lovely friendly helpful staff. Even let us change one of main meals for same price!

“Simply good with a good touch of autenticity and incredible value”
Reviewed June 14, 2011

The restaurant is located next to the Calpe port and is a nice alternative to the excellent seafood restaurants. Living in Asia for over 30 years and with the consistency of each meals we had for an excellent value, I can highly recommend this restaurant. The set menu available for lunch and dinner consists of a choice of spring rolls, sweet and sour soup or salad followed by a choice of 20 main courses priced from euros 4.95 to 8.8 (that will be your total menu price, including half bottle of wine and dessert). Those are the dishes I personally like; Roast Duck with spicy sauce euros 7.5, Chicken w almonds euros 5.5, Spareribs 5.5
Beef thai style 6.95
Pal choi a la carte 3. Total bill 28.45
Hot plates is a well received  professional touch.
For wine we opt for a nice chilled Spanish rose (included in the menu). For dessert, a simple caramel custard. Complimentary muscatel is served...
