The quality of the seafood and shellfish was superb: very fresh and delicious. We recommend the artichokes with foie and the ¨langostinos fritos¨ for starters. The seafood platter was delicious! We will be back.

Great choice on the menu. Fish seems to be the speciality though there is a good variety of fish free dishes.

Gorgeous garden. Fab food. Lovely waiters. This has become my fave restaurant. Try the cod salad and the artichokes with foie. And the baked Alaska for dessert....yummy.

I loved this restaurant. The ambience was lovely and the service fantastic. The food was excellent and served by a maitre d who spoke numerous languages. It is expensive compared to other restaurants in Benicarlo or Peniscola but I would definitely visit next year.
