We stopped off on a road trip from Barcelona to Valencia and were very glad we took the trouble to do so! The paella meal is amazing - three starters (salad, squid and mussels), followed by delicious paella with langoustines, shell-on gambas and mussels, then dessert, all for 20 euros each. The staff were lovely, really helpful and friendly and... More

We stayed one night in Benicarlo (at the Parador) and chose to ear here because the Paella menu looked appealing; we were not disappointed. We had an aperitif in the small bar that is linked to the restaurant before starting our meal at about nine. On this menu you get three starter plates to share, followed by the paella. All... More

We took one menu for 35 eur (without IVA) and it was too much food. I am a good eater but I could barely finish the last two dishes. I think the composition of flavors in the dishes was not very successful. The staff very friendly but the decoration of the place was not cosy. I am not coming back... More

We had been staying in Peniscola for a few days and stumbled across this little gem when we went for a drive. The degustation had a seafood theme and the wine was perfectly matched making this a wonderful experience and a very pleasant afternoon. Isabelle and Pau have the whole concept of a top restaurant worked out and front of... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant looking for a decent lunch place on our drive back to Barcelona. It is located near the yachting port at the end of the boulevard (avenida) on the ground floor of a modern building. The restaurant itself also has a modern interior and in a somewhat stretched rectangular shape across multiple rooms. Service is both... More

The food was good, but it takes about 30minutes between each dish. Two and a half hours to complete a lunch.

Even in the low season time this is a special experience. A friendly host, good quality food and a lot of attention to the taste gives you the experience you want. This restaurant is worth a detour, you may go there from 50 km far to enjoy this cooking.

We found the food excellent and the two "amuse bouches" were a lovely touch. The staff were exceptional in their care of us and had excellent English which was something of a contrast to our halting Spanish. The restaurant was beautifully set out. All in all we had a wonderful evening and will haste ourselves back before too long.

En route from Barcelona to Valencia Tripadvisor pointed us to this restaurant: definitely worth the little detour! We had a very nice salad with artichokes, strawberries and wild mushrooms to share and as a main we chose the sole (mine a la meuniere and my girlfriend's from the oven). Great pick! Big portions at small-town prices. Moreover we were treated... More
