“Great Paella”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

A very rustic place, situated in an elevated position with great views to the sea, this restaurant specialises in Paella - which it does very well indeed - but also has quite a comprehensive menu as well. It fails miserably when you come to service though. Although polite, the waitresses never seem to remember anything you have requested - it is not uncommon to have to ask for condiments up to four times before they eventually arrive! Seating can also be quite cramped and with the usual one or two noisy tables this can all add up to some distraction.

“Fantastic lunch”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

The views are spectacular...
The paella was excellent, probably one of the best I have had - had the right amount of crispy rice on the bottom and authentic rabbit. Just turning the corner & finding this place was very lucky & it was busy with people in no hurry to leave even after desserts. Service was a bit hit & miss, but ah well, came in for a relaxed lunch & that's what we got. It will be on my list for my next visit...

“paellas are good”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

To all the people saying bad things about Cañis :
When you go to a Spanish paella restaurant, order paella and speak Spanish.
btw : they have the best looking waitress ; unfortunately also the worst looking one :(
