Been there with my 2 adult children. Hours of work are really inconvinient. It is open only for lunch. Not opened for dinner. The prices were rather expensive for what it was. Paella was a bit undercooked. Prawns were VERY expensive. Service was good. Overall impressions - nothing really special with pretty high prices.

Beautiful interior and very welcoming and attentive staff. When I booked the day before I had fleetingly mentioned that it was my mother's birthday that we were reserving for, and all the staff had remembered and wished her a happy birthday in English. Despite being very authentically Spanish, they had the menu available in very well translated English. We ordered... More

We visited the restaurant several times. Their specialty is fish and seafood. I would rank in as 4 but the last visit was not so good. Arroz a banda was very salty and the mussels were not so nice as you would expect in October. Perhaps it was just a bad luck.

Traditional Spanish restaurant serving top quality sea food. Running a special offer at the moment it is so close to the sea feels like you are on a boat

This place is a family own & run restaurant where locals go for good rice in special occasions. They have set menus that include the key specialties of the house. We had house salada, grilled calamari and rice "del señoret", which means rice cooked with all the good fish stock and with small and clean of bones pieces of seafood.... More

We've been coming to this restaurant for years now and I continue to say they do the best rice I've ever had! It's so delicious and will keep returning for that reason. It's a lovely setting for lunch near the beach and I wanted to say that I really like the interior. I noted someone saying it was old fashioned... More

La Peña is a classic Campello restaurant, not particularly attractive in decor (has remained with the ''boat'' and ''fishing'' motives forever, but you can guarantee one of the best rice dishes (paellas) in Alicante!! Starters were some great Spanish ham , ''Denia'' shrimps (''gamba roja'' great size and grilled to perfection) . As a main course we had two different... More
