This restaurant serves good food. The only problem is the price. A lobster paella is €49 per person with minimum of two people. That is €98 for two. That is too dear. The food is good but the price is wrong.

Enjoyed the food and it was a quiet restaurant within the castle walls. We went for the set menu and really enjoyed the Fideau - which is noodle paella.

Our dinner at El Penon was very nice! Food is great, the fish is very fresh and well cooked and the waiters very nice and helpful. The price is really not high for what you get. Super recommended!
