This is a very well priced restaurant serving Spanish food as well as a mix of other European food. The cannelloni and fish were superb! Its a fun place with a nice bar and dancing area. The service is good and the staff very friendly. You are sure to have a good time for a great price!

Don't pass this restaurant by, it was by far the best eating experience in Parcent. Manolo and his wife are a brilliant team, the combination of an experienced and talented chef with brilliant service resulted in the best meal we've eaten during our visit. We've returned 3 times as the warmth of Manolo's hosting and the very fine tuned menu... More

This Restaurant reopend with new owners. Realy we are happy they did. We can recomand it. We asked them what to do in winter, as it was always cold than. They showed us to close a part of the resaurant and they had put in stoves. So it will be fine in winter too.

For a good night, reasonable food and the nicest of hosts El Paraiso can't be beaten in Parcent. Friday nights the bonus of music is thrown in. Very pleasamt all round and we thank the proprietor for his attention to assistance even with the language barrier. The €12 deal is great value. Wine, typically "casa" but more than axceptable

El Paraiso has re-opened after about 1 year of restoration and refurbishment. The first thing i noticed when i entered the building was that it was clean and tidy, white painted walls... More

This restaurant has recently re-opened (July 2016) and the hosts are Manolo and Svetlana. The food is good and the atmosphere is fun and relaxed. They have music nights on Fridays with a set menu and booking is advised as it's very popular. Check out their Facebook page for special evenings. They allow well-behaved dogs on the terrace outside at... More

Victoria Station (formerly known as Planet, and originally El Paraiso), is the place to go if you want a meal with all the flair of a top class restaurant. However, be warned, the portions are very generous! The chef prepares and serves wonderful little amuse-bouches. The outdoor eating area is looking so pretty. There is plenty of shade with natural...

So disappointed that El Parisio closed in January 2015. However the Victoria (just a bit nearer Parcent) has the same quality and appeal (not surprising as it is run by the same people from El Parisio). Our lunch meal was both excellent quality (5 courses) and such good value for money. Thank you for a most pleasant visit. I know... More
