We were looking for somewhere close by to have a quick burger, nothing fancy. This hit the spot. We both had the Johnny Depp burgers, nice big patties and well made. €26 for both meals plus a coke and a beer. Drinks a but overpriced but we were happy enough. Tables were a bit close together.

Two doors from our hotel we needed a quick lunch bite after our overnight flight from the States. Diverse menu. Frozen paella. BUT, two beers and a shared HUGE HALF KILOGRAM HAMBURGER later, we were impressed! Really hit the spot! (We have yet to figure out how they charged us 20.9 euros for 16 euros worth of food, but we...

We ordered a takeaway from here via deliveroo. It arrived on time. We had bread with tomato and hummus which were nice. We had two paellas; one chicken and one mixed. The mixed one came with mussels, one prawn, some chicken and possibly cuttlefish. My boyfriend was quite happy with it. My chicken paella was disappointing, although it tasted nice... More

There were only a few tourists inside which should have been my first clue that this place was a tourist trap overcharging and cutting corners. I had the "sautéed mushrooms with garlic and parsley" which I'm sure were canned mushrooms heated in olive oil and the fishermens mussels which again I'm sure they substituted with canned mussels in a watered...

Cool atmosphere and decor in this restaurant. Chicken paella was great, as were the sangrias! Top notch, service was fast and attentive and servers could speak great English which was nice. Didn't stay long but enjoyed it nonetheless.

The food in this restaurant is very tasty. I've tried other establishments and they don't compare to this one. The chicken paella is a must. Been here 3 days in a row.

The staff were nice, however service was a bit slow, the restaurant had a good atmosphere, I had the al pecino burger, the veal was nicely cooked with the pepperiness of the burger nicely complimenting the salty capers, the grilled peppers were nice and soft and the sweet tomato countered that, the cheese was nicely melted and there was a...

This was reasonable food especially if you like to try the local. Had cuttlefish paella which was quite good but service was lacking.

Stopped by for a burger and a beer and both were excellent. The local artisanal "Rock Hall" beer was very drinkable and my "Nicolas Cage" burger (cream cheese and onions) was great. Good service and food, would swing by again.
