Marco is a very receptive person and willing to give all information that you need before you decide what you should eat. His father in law "is responsible" for ingredients, fishing in his own all the seafood dishes served there.
I recommend to do a reservation before you go. We had a luck in one day but we realized that is a disputed place to have a sit

Can Tanu was a choice for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Great service by extremely friendly staff, started off with a round of drinks sitting in the street taking in the scene and local ambiance. Tapas to start, grilled mussels with garlic and olive oil and spicy chorizo, both were outstanding. This was followed by meat paella and garlic chicken, they were mouth watering, the perfect size portion and cooked to perfection. All three of us would highly recommend!

This lovely and delightfully friendly small family-run restaurant is a treat and good value for money. The fish comes directly from the cook's fisherman husband and is transformed into absolutely delicious paella and other delicacies by the delightful Pilar who exudes hospitality along with her charming staff. The atmosphere is delightful, on a very pretty pedestrian cobbled street in the old part of town where you can watch the passers by amble along looking at the small boutiques. A good place for all ages as children are made to feel welcome and given colouring pencils and high chairs. It is very small so reserving is recommended. If you are in the area do not miss it!!
