Lunchtime Mixed Paella (pre ordered) was one of the best we've had in this area (15 years living here). Restaurant down a side road so is a hidden gem!

Enjoyed a lovely authentic Paella with our young family. Tucked away but worth finding if you want a taste of real Spain. Even with 3 kids under 7, we were made to feel welcome.

Response from JIROGERS | Reviewed this property |
They certainly do, and their meat is really very very good. Ask for it "en su punto" if you don't want it too red- "medio" can be medium rare. They also have lots of pork (cerdo) and lamb (cordero) although Spanish lamb... More
