The restaurant is located inside a beautiful garden-place called Plaza de Doña Elvira. On the other side of the place is El Rincon de Figaro, the house where supposedly lived the Barber of Seville. The restaurant tables are under orange trees, and a small fountain...More

Had the prawns in garlic and unfortunately left disappointed and appalled. Every prawn had not been de-veined and so had to operate on each one before consuming. The location means they will always be busy. Food pricey but as expected due to location. Found waiting...More

We selected this restaurant as the location is wonderful - a beautiful orange tree-lined square. The service was dire - surly and intermittent. We ordered gazpacho and mixed paella and our friends ordered fish. Main courses were delivered whilst we were still eating first courses....More

We saw the restaurant in this lovely square the night before and thought the paellas looked decent. When we arrived at the restaurant last night, we were seated immediately but not given any menus. We then waited for 10-15 minutes to try to gain a...More

Wandering around Barrio Santa Cruz in search of dinner we were enticed in by the ambience of the beautiful square. It really is a lovely location! However this restaurant was disappointing. The waiters were generally unfriendly and some downright rude - shortly after we arrived...More

Nice outdoor setting in Plaza de Doña Elvira. Seafood paella for two was "OK" but the Blanco Andaluz wine was fantastic.. With mixed salad, everything came to €62... Tourist oriented. I wouldn't go back.
