Lovely decor. Great service and fab food. What more could you ask for. Even in February had good buzz in the restaurant. Would definitely revisit.

It took more than half an hour to get our drinks on the table. Although pizzas might be right, the fish was frozen and poorly cooked. I will not come back again. Years ago it was a nice place with nice food...today is a nice...place with trashy food.More

This was not our first visit to the restaurant but probably our last. Nothing in particular sets it apart from any other pizza pasta place, maybe just a little more expensive. The food is acceptable but not much more. It's always very busy and has...a lively atmosphere, just a shame the food is lacking in any real quality. We found the service a little unfriendly, the lady who seemed to be in charge was particularly curt. We live in Spain and are used to sometimes off service but was more evident than most.More

i went with two friends on Tuesday 17 September 2019. we didn't book in advance as we were just visiting. The waiters were a little frosty at first but then they became very friendly and helpful. one of the party is a vegitarian but had...no problem getting suitable food from the menu. Another has severe allergies and found the special menu very confusing at first. in fact, with a little help she was able to order easily and the food was really good. I would recommendMore

G&t, glass of water, shared small dish of olives, good starter, inedible tough steak main course, coffee - 23.50 euros. Most local bars provide a far better three course lunch with a drink for 8 euros. Not returning.

Hello, if you are looking for a meal for only 8€ , you have mistaken a restaurant. Thank you your opinion.

We generally visit this restaurant every time we are in Xativa. Centrally situated one road back from the main avenue, it offers good food and service for a reasonable cost. The decor is bright and airy, staff pleasant and multi lingual. A menu del Dia...is available Monday to Friday. There is a week end set price menu also, however you may find that you have to ask for it.More

My husband & I took my mum & her friend as they were on holiday & they loved it! There was ample choice, the food was delicious! My husband even declared best pizza ever!! We all seemed to have different dishes & desserts & not...one of us complained! The portion sizes were spot on & whilst the service has been reported as slow - I personally do not like to be rushed & I like 15/20 mins between courses (naughtily I'm a smoker & that does give me time to go out if I want to)! But we had a srumptious meal & we will be back!! The service for me was spot on & very attentive! Thank you!More

This is the third time we have been to this restaurant and I don't know why we went back! The service, as bfore, was dreadful. We were left sitting waiting both before and during the meal. The tables were decorated with green plates when we...arrived one of which had a large crack in the side.The best thing is that there is a very wide choice of foods, reasonably well cooked, - but the portions are not overgenerous. Not very impressed!!More
