We called at mid-day and booked a table for 2 the following evening. Well appointed room and friendly staff. Over long menu. We were the only people in the restaurant apart from a party of 6 seated nearby. They were spending a lot of money on expensive dishes and so got the bulk of attention. Food was a little curious...

I have visited this restaurant for the second time and I was really pleased. The service is super friendly and the food (order a variation from the tapas menu, e.g. the Albondigas and Croquetas) very good. Moreover, the garden from "El Cortijo" is extremely beautiful and romantic. We had the luck to visit this place when having a flamenco show... More

Great choice on the menu. Fish seems to be the speciality though there is a good variety of fish free dishes.

I must admit, this restaurant is not cheap but it's worth the visit, the food is great and the staffs are friendly, helpful and attentive. We always make a point to have our lunch there every time we visit Benicarló during the Fallas Festival in March for the pass two years. Revisited it in Oct over the long weekend and... More

Gorgeous garden. Fab food. Lovely waiters. This has become my fave restaurant. Try the cod salad and the artichokes with foie. And the baked Alaska for dessert....yummy.

I loved this restaurant. The ambience was lovely and the service fantastic. The food was excellent and served by a maitre d who spoke numerous languages. It is expensive compared to other restaurants in Benicarlo or Peniscola but I would definitely visit next year.

I can't wait to go here again. I had been traveling to Europe for business once a month for nearly 2 years. With countless trips to Spain in the mix, I wanted to wait until I had a fair sampling of paella before I wrote a review. This tops the list. I was addicted to the homemade garlic aoli which...

Thank you for your kind words and especially because he liked both our paella, this fact does nothing to verify reputation that precedes us in this dish as ours. Thank you for your reference on Trip Advisor and see us again anytime.Sure find another form of rice that you will love too! A hug! More
