We are regular visitors to Villajoyosa and its surrounding areas and took recommendation from the reviews to hunt down an authentic tasting, high quality Paella. I must say my OH and I were quite disappointed, it was far from 'amazing' and it was not 'the best paella around'. The food was moderately priced at 11.95 euro's per person for the chicken and spicy sausage paella and I would say that we expected something rather spectacular for this price. The dish was average sized (more of a snack size than a main meal for two), tasty but did not ooze flavour, depth or value for money that's for sure. We will most definitely be furthering our search the next time we are in the local area in the hunt for Villa's best cooked paella. We have personally tasted better Paella at the El Cisne Rastro just outside of Benidorm.

We have dined here many times over the last few months, but we celebrated my mothers 70th birthday at El Guitarra the last Friday in August.
The food was excellent and every attention was made to ensure the whole family has a pleasant and memorable meal.
To finish the meal the staff came with a wonderful birthday cake and sang to my mother.
We can definately recommend the restaurant to anyone and value for money the choice of dishes is wonderful.
Well done to all the staff and "thank you" for making my mother happy !!!!

We have been to El Guitarra several times over the past 3 years, and, having dined at several restaurants in the area, this is definitely one of our favourite venues. There is no set price 'daily menu', but what they offer is a good a la carte menu at a reasonable price. We had the salmon, and it was beautifully presented with a selection of fresh vegetables. The service is excellent too. One of the the things we love best about this restaurant is its location - right on the sea front. The perfect spot for casual dining!

Whatever negative comments have been made about this little restaurant on the sea front, "IGNORE".

We have visited this Lovely little restaurant on the sea front several times over the last 2 or 3 years, It has recently changed hands and is owned by a Belgian Guy called Lucas with his wife, he is very hospitable and friendly along with many of the staff. We ordered our meal and have to say the quality and quantity of food was excellent with no complaint at all about service. We asked to speak to the 'chef' who is called Jooles to thank him for an excellent meal. The menu has a good variety to cater for all tastes. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone with confidence and we will certainly be visiting again when we are next in Beni.

The service was excellent, thanks to Hatty and Enzo !!! Congratulations with the Paella ! This is the best we have found until now around Villajoyosa.
See you next year !
