On holiday in Benidorm we came across this lovely tapas/steak bar/restaurant situated in the old town across from the church. As two of our party have gluten intolerances we asked the chef if gluten free tapas were available and to our delight that was the case. The manager oversaw our order in the same evening which was a nice gesture... More

Mal Pas is close enough to the beach to hear the sea and right next to a charming square which makes it perfect for dining outside. We found ourselves in a mix of British and Spanish customers which is always reassuring. My wife had tuna steak and I had the ribs and both dishes where absolutely delicious. The waiting staff...

Absolutely lovely authentic spanish lunch. The tomato bread was so fresh, beautiful salad and tasty tuna. Spoilt for choice so may have to come back again! Couldn't fault the food or service. Definitely recommend.

We found this beautiful little authentic Spanish restaurant as we were heading towards the stunning great church in the Old Town. We passed here around about 2pm in the afternoon and the restaurant was fairly quiet so we got a nice table and a very pleasant member of staff took our order of a couple of refreshing beer's. We checked... More

When visiting Benidorm it's not typically Spanish food in many restaurants. I was recommended meal pas by a Spanish lady and it didn't disappoint. The best paella I've ever had. Great service, this is a must to try.

We went here earlier this week as it was mentioned on a recommendation card in our apartment for the paella. We arrived around 7.30 and were the first ones in, it was small but very nice, we were shown to our table for six and brought the menu, we were then told the menu was only in Spanish which was...
