Brilliant! Brilliant! Wow - what an unexpected surprise. We wish it were possible to give this restaurant a better rating than excellent!
Firstly - they are nothing to do with "La Parra" featured on Gordon Ramsay's television program many years ago. This establishment has changed ownership several times since then!
This restaurant is on Calle Fillipinas (the approach road leading to Burriana Beach) and is just 50 metres from the Passeo de Burriana. The restaurant is now called "Restaurante Burriana" with a different telephone number (now 95 252 4969) - not to be confused with a completely different restaurant called "The Restaurant at Burriana" on the other side of the road.
They are open all days for lunch and dinner, but on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays they put on Flamenco shows in the evening. We went for dinner on Sunday. It was brilliant. Dinner plus entertainment - we haven't enjoyed an evening in a restaurant like this for quite a time. The flamenco show (2 girls and 1 man) started at about 8 o'clock and continued throughout the meal. The dancers danced with such conviction and passion and took breaks between numbers with several costume changes, so allowed diners sufficient time to also have conversations.
The food was excellent. Actually better than excellent! We started with Anchoas Cantabrico €7.00 (anchovies - sufficient to share), followed with Solomillo de Ternera €10.00 (excellent quality fillet steak perfectly cooked medium rare "al punto", succulent and tender) & Sardinas only €5.00 (probably the best and freshest Sardines I have had for a long time - I have had smaller less appetising sardines for a higher price in other restaurants). The chips that came with the steak were excellent (home-made - not frozen or pre-prepared).
What made this excellent was not just that the food was very very good but also that the flamenco show raised this from just a meal to an occasion. They charged us a mere €2 per person for the entertainment - fantastic value. They also offer 2 set 3-course menus at €20 and €25 euros which include the flamenco show.
The service was also very attentive and efficient.
We would go there again next week but sadly they told us they were closing for the winter season (until Spring). Definitely recommend reserving on flamenco nights. Even without the flamenco show the food was excellent in its own right.
