We chose this restaurant, on a Saturday lunchtime, after much deliberation between those along the seafront, as it had a reasonable price for menu of the day, 18 euros, and had customers. We selected our starters only to be told by the non-English speaking waiter, who kept pointing to the two paella choices, that we got all four! Bread, cheese,... More

We had the menu for 18 € which apart from the paella was awful. But the main point I would like to make is that the treatment by the owners is abysmal, when we arrived we asked for something to be done about a draft that my mum and wife could feel on the back of their necks, to which... More

Service was terrible. Spanish got good service and we, either because we looked British or because we did not have the full menu got... More

The paella Valencia, fried little octopus and jamon were very tasty and staff was extremely friendly (english are welcome). All ingradients were fresh and in the depth of restorant there is a big kitchen where 3 cooks are making all meals (you can watch the process on your way to VC). The price was quite comfortable - 40€ for two... More

Recommended by the local people. Not bad but not the best service. Chaotic. Food is acceptable and its location is great price/quality is allright

Great location on the beach front but we tried the 15Eu lunch and found it very poor. Glass of red house wine was undrinkable, so I bought a decent bottle of Merlot for only 10Eu. Because choice was limited we ordered another paella - big mistake. It was overlooked and cost 30Eu. They never explained that the menu price of... More

Wonderful spot along the coast accompanied by so many other restaurants. The service and the paella were amazing. Tried puntillas for the first time and they were also very good. Only complaint was the desert we picked(crema catalana) as it was a pre-frozen desert which you could tell was purchased. It came out still partially frozen. There were other deserts... More

Although better known for their Paella dishes we opted for the mixed seafood platter for main course. Stunning platter with loads of Cray fish, langoustines, lobster, king prawns. We had mussels and seafood salad to start. The waitress recommended a fantastic bottle of Spanish wine to go with it all. The service was fantastic and totally unexpected after different places...

We really enjoyed our lunch at Monkili restaurant. We'd been on the open top bus all morning, stopped at the beach and walked along before stopping for a lovely, freshly made, proper spanish paella. We washed it down with a lovely bottle of spanish white wine. A really, really nice lunch. Thank you!
