We were surprised by the negative feedbacks that we read because our experience here was good. We ate paella knowing that it is not a typical dish of this area. Nevertheless we liked it. Pulpo was really good too. The waiters were nice, quick and efficient as we have never seen in Spain so far. This is a good option... More

Not proper food! Ordered calamari and was obvious from the freezer and tasted so bad. We ordered olive oil and it came in a sashi! Service was so bad, so we decided to pay up and move on where we found some amazing food. If you want cheap not good food it's fine but if you are after proper food... More

Near the cathedral and an average looking bar/restaurant with an extensive menu. The service was just OK. We order from the menu of the day and the food was pretty bad with the lowest quality ingredients money can buy.

I was suprised about the negative comments of this place because we had only good experiences. We choosed the place because it was a lot of local people there having a very good looking paella. The staff was very kind (we speak spanish so the language was not a problem for us) and the paella was really great. The wine... More

We had a lobster rice. Should be a delicate dish with subtle flavours. However, the rest de was undercooked, the lobster overcooked and a very strong tasting commercial stock was used that overpowered everything. For €38 for two I would expect more. No English was spoken... Ok, we are in Spain, but in a town where tourism is key, some... More

We had a sea food soap and mussels. The soap is poor and I can't say that the mussels are bad just because they have no taste. The Coca Cola light and the coffee are just fine

We chose this because they had an available outside table overlooking the small garden and it was a pleasant place for lunch. That said, the food was perfectly OK as well. I had a plate of cheese, a plate of ham and bread, my partner had the menu of the day and we were both perfectly happy with our light... More

A scruffy guy who went from smoking in the doorway, to his beercan at the bar, to the toilet, in a continuous cycle, reminded me of the sad psychotic brown bear at the zoo. He was tolerated by the owners and didn't put us off entering. I saw no evidence of any English spoken, and thought that in a city... More
