Booked a table on a Saturday evening. Inside tables full, so booking is advised. Great service, good food. Pleasant ambience. Extensive menu. Shared a paella which was delicious. Good coffee to follow.

How annoying it was to be turned away by the manager saying can you come back in 20mins. There will be a small table free then. The fact there were four tables of 4 or more places free was irrelevant. He made it quite clear, he didn't want us to use a 4 seat table for just my wife and... More

Five of us out for an early evening meal. We ordered a chicken paella and a fish paella for us all, so four amongst five. The paella was really very good, the service good, the ambiance good...nothing "wow" just solidly good!

The food at El Nido was of a good quality, particularly the paella. We had the traditional Valencian version and it was excellent. The starter that we had (fried cheese) was a bit odd and overpriced. However, the service was excellent, with a free glass of cava at the end of the meal finishing off our night perfectly.

El Nido is a nice restaurant, with a nice terrace and nice service. The food is also quite OK, not super. Why not so enthousiastic then? I think the price/quality is not what we expected. Quality was good, but the price somewhat higher as elsewhere.

A trip to Moraira is not complete without lunch or diner at El Nido's!! Always amazing food and prompt, friendly service. All the staff are warm, friendly and give you a sense of being embraced into their family - always smiling, accommodating and simply can't do enough to ensure you have a perfect time. Never had a bad meal and... More

I cycle down to Moraira on my recovery days for a tapas treat. The seafood selection is excellent and authentic, requiring topping and tailing as well as fiddling with bones. Similarly, the café solo is not the diluted tourist fare. The staff don't bat an eyelid at my Lycra and I can keep an eye on my bike propped up... More

Excellent service, the waiter looked after my dad who has allergies, and the food itself was excellent. We don't think we'll have a better meal in Moraira.

We visited this restaurant for our first family meal whilst on our hoilbobs. All the tables had reserved on them but we thought we would take a chance, turned out they are not and they quickly took the sign away. We sat down and had some rather lovely bread and condiment, which cost us more euros than we expected. We... More
