Having gone down to the beach we happened to see this place. What a gorgeous looking place! The inside has so much caractère! We had a delicious paella and would want to come back next time we come in this area.

Enjoyed our lunch at Trocadero Arena. Good food and service in very cool ambiance. Outside sitting area was also very nice and I am sure lots of fun during summer.

Very cosy restaurant. It has a nice atmosphere. Staff is somewhat attentive, certainly when it's getting late in the evening. Food is of good quality, although for our taste sometimes too salty. Shame because it ruins the flavour of the dishes.
