Called in so St. Valentines evening for their special menu. For €25 it was very well worth it. By no means was it small portions. Very good portions and hot and tasty. The staff were excellent and will definitely be back.

This restaurant does the best hot & sour soup in Orihuela Costa. Lovely decor, you feel like you are in a tropical place and great food.

Am becoming a regular customer. No year is complete without a visit. Good food at an affordable price. Good enough service, but waiters used to be more attentive before. Recommended anyhow.
