Customer Reviews

Restaurante todo un clásico en el paseo de la playa de Malvarosa. Lugar para probar algunas de sus variadas paellas. Nos decantamos por la Pepica (paella de la casa tipo Senyoret – tipo Parallada). Paella con cocción al punto con socarrat. Muy buena. Recomendables también algún tipo de pescaditos fritos. El pan tostado con all i oli acompaña muy bien los platos.

Events with a closed menu are not held for groups of less than 30 people.

When a reservation is made on the terrace, due to adverse weather conditions, the service cannot be provided, nor is its placement inside the restaurant guaranteed.

The time of the reservation guarantees to have your table available at that time. Even so, this time is not exact and may suffer some variation. The time of a table reservation does not mean that your rice or food is ready at that time. Once you arrive at the restaurant and place your order, your food will begin to be prepared from scratch. Our rice dishes are made using a traditional and century-old procedure, a procedure that is not short: the rice dishes are made in a minimum of 45 minutes and reducing their time would imply lowering their quality. It is important that you take this indication into account.
