Reasonably-priced lunchtime menus. Very welcoming and attentive host who made us all feel at home. Located in the centre of the old town.

One of the few open at this time of the year. We had the menu of the day @ €18.50 per head. Nice ambience. Starters all fried this or that. Nice gilt head bream for main course (goldfish on menu!). Dessert passable. Service good. Wouldn't rush back.

The owner and waiter ( not sure if he was family or not) were excellent and knew how to give first class passionate service. Thought we were at a top class London restaurant. The way the food and drinks were presented was pure theatre. Anyway on to the food, we had creamy fish soup to start and fish for main... More

Planned on a light meal but the food changed our minds. The fish was superb. The wine was excellent. The service was wonderful. Everyone did their best to please. I would go out of my way to return.

Well presented salad followed by a substantial and tasty fish. The flan de naranja was excellent and nicely presented with some melon. An interesting restaurant on a corner below the castle with dining areas on several levels. Our waiter was helpful and pleasant, speaking slowly for us Brits who can speak some Spanish.

Had lunch here and though we went for menu of the day it was delicious.. Mussels were tender and tasty and the paella the best we've ever had.. The orange flan also very tasty.. Didn't like the coffee so much but the house wine was excellent. Lovely setting and the service was first class ...

On the way to the upper part of the old town, charming little restaurant with terrasse, traditional local food and wines, served in the old-fashioned way by friendly and caring staff. Nothing trendy there, but honest family food by 2 ladies who know what they are talking about. The grilled fish(es) and local "arroz" are a must, everything is fresh... More
