Joenells Place is a wonderful European Spanish/Portuguese restaurant just a short walking distance from the Flagler Beach Pier. Besides the menu which includes Codfish Cakes, Paella, outstanding Bacalhau (salt codfish) and Mariscada (shellfish), there is a wonderful staff that makes you feel at home. Don't miss this one!

One waitress in a very busy restaurant the day I was there so she could not keep up with our requests. However, she still maintained a good attitude.The acoustics are poor. My shrimp was overcooked but the clam sauce and linguine underneath them was very good. My husband's dish did not thrill him and the pork in it was tough. The other people seated with us seemed mostly fine with their other types of food.

This restaurant is an all round first class experience ! Not fancy- more a Mom and Pop family type decor. However the food is top notch especially when considering that I don't think Volusia county has any other authentic Spanish/ Portuguese restaurants . I believe the owner is the chef , and used to be a chef in one of the top Spanish restaurants in the NY/NJ area.
Decent selection of seafood and meat dishes . All the Paella's are excellent as they don't skimp on the saffron . You can expect one whole lobster on the top of the seafood paella. I have tried about 5 dishes here so far and am yet to be disappointed . Great desserts to finish off the meal too . I highly recommend a visit to Joenells !!

Had the bacalhou and vegetarian paella - both dishes were expertly prepared and very tasty. Made fresh from scratch - be prepared for a bit of a wait but it's worth it. Generous serving sizes for reasonable prices. Large glass of house red wine was good and good price. Service was prompt and friendly. Although decor and setting is unassuming - it's the food that matters, which is excellent. A great experience and great food. Highly recommended - we'll be back.
