Went to this restaurant because of all the good reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed! We had a lovely paella. We have been coming to Calpe for over 10 years and this was the best paella so far. The staff were friendly and welcoming and I'm looking forward to my next visit

We have had several good meals here with friends but if you want a paella it's best you order it when booking your table to ensure you aren't disappointed on the day. The fish here is very good and the staff are very eager to make your experience a good one.

Enjoyed a lovely authentic Paella with our young family. Tucked away but worth finding if you want a taste of real Spain. Even with 3 kids under 7, we were made to feel welcome.

Had a really excellent meal with some tapas to start and followed by some mussels with spicy tomato sauce and garlic prawns which were delicious. Be warned if you want the paella and rice dishes, you need to order them in advance. Good sign that they make it to order and We will know for next time. Recommended

If your looking for typical Spanish cuisine this is place to go, great rice dishes, meats and fish, tapas and they also have a great menu of the day, family run business and very helpful in suggesting what they recommend, they accept reservations and the paellas are excellent. Fully recommend this place to anyone

The first time we went I was the only non-Spaniard in the place. The paella was excellent, the service really good. The meat is excellent. We've been back a few times since, including New Year's Eve 2015/6, like another contributor- and I can only echo his remarks. Great fun, great food, great service- and great value.

We were recommended this restaurant for New Years Eve by a Spanish friend who has lived in the area all his life. When we first arrived we were a bit put off by the initial canteen style decor, but when we went inside & realised the 'real' restaurant was through the big wooden doors at the back we waited for...

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel receptionist and it did not disappoint. We ordered the paella and were told it would take 30 minutes and it was worth the wait. Very good with lots of shrimp, prawns, calamares and other shellfish. Excellent flavour and excellent rice. Two happy customers.

This place has been in the Family for over 50 years. If your sick of all the cheap tourist crap on the beach or places where paella is made by a division of Unilever then try here. Not that cheap by value for what you get. 4 can eat well with additions and wine for 100€ and be well satisfied.... More
