We were expecting to be disappointed based on the reviews here, but we were hungry and there wasn't much open for dinner on a Sunday evening in the off season, so we tried it. We ordered from the specials menu and both loved our meals....More

In a town renowned for its paella (especially during its summer feria), this restaurant's paella wasn't just bad, it was disgusting. It was one big glop of gooey rice, slimy vegetables and mushy shellfish. And no wonder: according to our waiter, it had been cooked...More

We are happy that they accepted to serve to us in a very late hour. We ordered antricot and muscelles. Taste and presentation was ok but not the best. Staff was very friendly. Price for two people with a half bottle of house wine was...More
