I absolutely adore this place! Everything is home-made and fresh. You may wait for your food, but it is worth it! The portions are generous. We have eaten fried sardines, seafood salad (very good, contains diffrent types of seafood), fresh fishes, prawns (my favourite) and seafood paella, which was huge, delicious and spectacular!The service was fantastic!

As we sat down the lady that served us was very stressed!! Before giving us the menu she told us she was having problems with the fridge and it wasn't being repaired quick enough !! We looked at the other table of two ( four of us in the restaurant) and they just raised their eyebrows, with no food on... More

Don't go here if you are starving or in a hurry....if you are happy to sit and chill and graze this is ideal and the food is good Very reasonably priced

Generous portions, friendly service. A little tucked away but worth seeking out. Chicken livers particularly enjoyable.

Went here three times with my family whilst on holiday. Food great value for money. Try the chicken livers won't be disappointed. May wait a while for food to come but well worth the wait.

We very much enjoyed our visit to this local restaurant, very warm welcome and attentive service. There is a bit of a wait for the freshly cooked to order food, but more than worth it. Very generous portions and reasonable prices, good local wine too. We will be revisiting next time we are in Alcala.

It’s very brave of Janice from the UK and her partner Del the chef from Bulgaria to offer a large tapas menu alongside the usual type of restaurant meals. And they definitely succeed. Some Spanish restaurant owners take note! Great food and a great welcome with great prices too. Find Rincon Canario in a side street just off the main... More

This is a small cosy restaurant just down a side street in the charming harbor town of Alcalá. We had rang earlier to make our booking for four which would be advisable at... More
