We looked for a good paella or arrozo for dinner in Alicante, definitely avoiding the tourist traps of the seafront and of the old town. Tripadvisor led us to this restaurant which is not in the touristic district but certainly known by the Spanish people...More

We recommend this place if you want to have amazing traditional Spanish food out of the touristic circuit. Located at 25 minutes’ walking from the city center, it looks like the typical 80’s restaurant and the service was kind and professional. The food was absolutely...More

Very best in Alicante. Personal service, carefully prepared local food. Friendly, cozy local taberna and restaurant. Berberechos al vapor were very tasty. Not so touristic but good location, just a few steps away from tourist bars.
