Based on the reviews, we decided to walk the extra bit from the marina-so worth it. Great Spanish atmosphere, great menu, great service, food exceptional (with English menu). The beer very nice too. Made for a great evening-well worth hunting out!

We decided that we were having a paella one evening, and today was the day. Upon ordering, we were informed it would take 25-30 minutes to cook, and asked if we wanted a starter. So we had ham croquets, which were fine. We had a chicken and seafood paella, which contained chicken (on the bone), prawns, squid and some prawns... More

Loved loved LOVED their entrecote (which was also the reason we came to the restaurant). The meat melted in your mouth, perfectly cooked. The entrecote is huge and best shared between two people. Also their Iberian ham was very good, as well as the wine from Ribera del Duero.

My wife and I tried this restaurant on the final evening of our holiday, based on the good reviews from other visitors. It lived up to our expectations. Good, friendly service and the food was really tasty and good value for money. I ordered a fillet steak, and my wife chose an entrecote. We both requested cooking medium rare, but... More

Keen to experience the "best" meat restaurant in Alicante. Ordered the Ribeye for two. It was tough, sinewy and not at all well marbled. The kind of steak that needs to come with toothpicks. The service was mediocre at best, in a speciality steak house, being thrown steak knives (blunt ones) half-way through the steak as an afterthought didn't help.... More

Found this whilst wandering and so pleased we did. Warmly welcomed in and made comfortable. Wine and food menu were explained and we chose recommended starters as our paella would take a while to make. Wine recommended was also very good. Very reasonable prices. Clean and comfortable will have this on our return list.

First visit was for lunch. Delightful lady serving who made us very welcome. We had a traditional rice dish 'Arroz a la Banda' with squid and prawns. It was excellent. Noticed lots of people having tapas for lunch including excellent looking steaks. Went again in the evening and had a ribeye steak to share - really good.
