    Overcooked seafood, very dry and chewy. Overcooked paella, rice sticker to pan it was cooked on. Place is dark and doesn’t look nice, drinks is very expansive

    Tapas was terrible. Ordered the tapas share menu and almost everything over cooked. Seafood platter better. We’d asked staff if it was too much food when ordering but we had to leave about half of the seafood platter. Waste of food. Staff courteous and helpful but it’s a touristy restaurant.

    A tourist trap. Paella gets a 2 out of 10 with old seafood inside and no relation to the traditional dish in terms of rice texture and taste. Glass of Sangria not featured on the menu so they can overprice it relative to other restaurants. Otherwise your typical tourist restaurant serving pizza, fish and meat dishes, with an obvious lack of a chef or even a traditional cook in the cuisine. Stay away!

    Ok, the food was good. The interior rather simple. But the staff was nice. The price was a little high compared to what we got

    Do not eat at this restaurant. My airplane food was better. I read good reviews on trip adviser and was actually looking for a different restaurant called Catalana. Which is where we should have eaten. We were lured in with the promise of a special and when we got in found out it was something else entirely. We were skeptical and ordered a paella to share. The waiter proceeded to take all the glasses off the table and seemed very annoyed we were not ordering more or drinking alcohol. The Paella was beyond horrible. The taste was not only bad and flavorless but the ingredients were not fresh. We got 2 prawns and a couple of "muscles" and 1 tiny morsal of piece of chicken for 17euro. There were no vegetables just a few dried up peas. The fish and so called squid was rubbery and tasteless. What a dissapointment ! I repeat don't eat here!

    It was busy and staff was struggling to keep up. Not a big place, but very friendly.

    Service was polite but pushy. Food cooked from deeply frozen ingredients, and some off-the-shelf supermarket style products. It's my first 1-start review in years, but the place not worth the visit. We ordered rice with seafood. Shrimps were terrible- frozen and defrosted few times!!! Rubbish food ;) Avoid!

    Great food, good atmosphere, good service,reasonable prices, easy to find. Booked online from Australia in September for Christmas Day without problem. 2 people for dinner. One starter, one garlic bread, seafood platter for two, 4 scotches, 2 coffee €106. Will probably go again tomorrow night. Best food we had in Spain over 2 week stay throughout the country.

    Lovely food, really tasty squid, perfectly cooked and amazing paella. Friendly, helpful service. Restaurant was quite quiet, some low background music would be nice but pleasant atmosphere.

    Made reservation after seeing great ratings. Would likely not have popped in if just walking by. Sooooo glad we found this outstanding restaurant. The seafood was the best we ever had and service was also great! Highly recommend.

    A very simple place, but nice and clean. Pleasant waiters. Good service. Although we enjoyed the food there was nothing special about it.

    Amazing service and the most delicious paella. Hidden away in a side street but don’t let that scare you way. The food is beautiful and authentic and the staff are so very friendly and welcoming. Must get the lobster paella!
