Very cosy place and full of decoration typical for traditional Spanish restaurant. Great views and decent service. Starters were pretty average, but the paella was phenomenal! Definitely one of the best in the region. Recommended!

Excellent service and food. The waiter even remembered us from our one visit two years ago. We ate the paella and the kids had the omelette with cheese and ham.
