Charming staff. Good English spoken. Charming waiter recommended a potable rosada, and we enjoyed a "locust" rice dish. Looked like a lobster! Bit overcooked but delicious. €68 for rice dish, 1 bottle of wine and salad. Very pleasant atmosphere and a worthy place to lunch.

In addition with the aforementioned dish, I enjoyed a plate of Solomillo Ibérico that went down an absolute treat! The atmosphere was relaxing, with wonderful decor, and very polite and friendly staff. So polite in fact, that the very owner himself, Antonio, shared a few...More

In short, we got in by chance as a lot of other paella places were closed for the evening (or did not serve paella anymore). The dinner menu of 13 Euro was more than enough and we thought it was tasty (albeit we are not...More

The menu del dia is good enough value. The speed the paella arrived meant is wasn't freshly made (maybe not surprising as on set menu). The main course meats were delicious, but the accompanying vegetables should have been left off - they were very soft....More
