After reading so many good reviews about the paella, i tried for lunch and what a disappointment it was. The rice was all burnt to the bottom of the pan, the seafood (especially the langostins) were old frozen...
I was really looking forward to a good meal but unfortinately was not the case.
Maybe I was unlucky !!!

Delicious paella, not expensive.
Very friendly waitress. We got a free alcoholic drink at the end of our visit.

Lovely meal, 3 set menus and one paella. Starters were enormous both boys polished them off and loved them proclaiming best pasta ever. Puddings were delicious, not something we’d had in Spain.

Everything made fresh, paella so good, service with a smile and a chat. Made to feel so welcome. The food was tasty, portions big.

Paella is not a speciality of northern Spain so we were not expecting too much. The paella was actually quite good. The set meal for 18 euros included a mixed seafood salad, grilled squid, a chicken and rabbit paella, desert and wine. The grilled squid was fantastic. The seafood paella (not on set menu) for 2 was enough to feed 4 and had plenty of seafood. It was not the best paella restaurant we have tried in Spain, but it was good value and a decent place to have a very nice lunch. The waitress was very helpful as well.
