Based on reviews and price we expected a special meal. The meal was really average. Bland fish, bland vegetables, bland salmon. We are not fussy eaters but we've had many much more tasty meals in cheaper rustic restaurants. The Tapas bar downstairs seems to be...More

The place to go for a gluten free conscious gourmet tapas experience. Our friends from Alicante knew just what to order, and everything was very tasty: red Denia shrimp, sepionets, very juicy pork, grilled peppers, and a lovely apple tarte tatin with homemade ice cream...More

We had lunch here, sitting in the bar downstairs and it was great in every way. The food. The service. The atmosphere. The price. Come early if you want to sit in the bar, can't reserve a place there.

We had been recommended this restaurant, but were very disappointed with the food. We ate at the bar to have tapas. They were not great and it was an expensive meal. The rice dish was very bland and again overpriced. The staff were efficient but...More

The restaurant upstairs was only about half full and had a nice, calm atmosphere. In comparison, the downstairs ‘tapas’ bar was very noisy and uninviting. When we visited at Easter there were almost no fish dishes on the menu, which was disappointing and limited in...More

In all fairness we had a decent dinner, but I am afraid it did not meet my expectations as per atmosphere, ambience, even in food terms. The restaurant is very big, but it has many different rooms . The room we were shown to was...More

Sobre lo que el viajero aaanita ha publicado, las cigalas que se comieron en nou manolin a 52€ según peso, yo las he visto y le aseguro que valen eso y más. Si para usted son pequeñitas y las está viendo en la barra para que las pidió? le sentaron bien? Nou Manolin lleva desde 1.972 dando el mejor marisco y es una falta de respeto hacia los dueños que usted se exprese así. La han tratado mal? Le han servido de forma incorrecta? Los precios están en la carta y no les han engañado. Su expresión "vergonzoso"sobre este restaurante está fuera de lugar porque no es cierto. Se lo dice un cliente que se ha comido unas cuantas cigalas y siempre ha sido impecable todo. Saludos. Andrés
