    We waited 30 minutes for our table The food was terrible: the seafood soup was cold (16 euros), the shrimps (24 euros) were 6 and they were not cooked, the wine was the baddest I ever drunk and too much expensive from 25 to 40 euros for its quality The baddest dinner at restaurant in my life

    We had eaten here before and loved it. I don't know if it is under new management but the entire feel was very different.The food was mediocre at best and the service perfunctory.The price was irrelevant as we have no desire to eat here again.

    The food was good but a bit expensive. The location is great, feels very authentic. Service is nice although the waiters don't really speak English.

    We had terrific fried anchovies but the best dish was a whole very fresh sea bass ala plancha, perfectly cooked. The waiter recommended we try concha fina, which is a raw very local type of clam served on the half shell, this was a great treat. The seafood soup was also very good. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

    The food was tasty, the service was good and professional. Most of the restaurant space was outside on the street, but it was a little chilly, so we sat inside. The restaurant itself is a little plain - it's not fancy, but it was value for money and the waiter did his job very well.

    Het eten was wel goed, maar de rest was teleurstellend. En het was erg duur.

    The food was as expected. Tasty and traditional, without being fantastic. Almost all of the waiters had some form of interaction with us, but coming across and talking to us whilst we are attempting to eat a hot meal isn't great. My starter had cooled considerably in the time the waiter was making pleasant small-talk. He should have spoken with us at conclusion of eating or prior to delivery of food.

    Really good and friendly . Suggest stick to the menu as we deviated and went off the menu and had John Dorey fish which was 32 euros a portion . Apart from that it was a lovely meal with mostly Spanish customers which was nice .

    We understand that New Year's Eve is a busy night for restaurants, but we did feel as if we were being rushed through our meal and that customer satisfaction was not the main priority. The presentation of the food was poor and it was very expensive. There was no vegetarian option for the main course and two of our party are vegetarian so this was disappointing.

    Lobster paella was excellent, but could have benefitted from less salt

    This is the sole restaurant in a small square. So it is a bit quitter than in the larger bustling plazas. It is a cloth tablecloth and napkin restaurant, a cut above many of the other area restaurants. A bit pricier than some of the other tourist restaurants, but not overly expensive. The price is matched by the higher food quality. We had paella which was a bit more expensive than some other restaurants, but definitely had more shellfish and meat instead of being mostly rice like the cheaper places.

    We went for paella. The service was good. They spoke English very well. We didn’t feel rushed or ignored. Gave us a free digestif after dinner. Perfect location. All in all a lovely meal.
