This giant paella restaurant is the perfect place to take visiting friends and relatives for a Spanish seafood feast by the beach. It is massive, with a huge outdoor covered patio as well as an ample inside section. This restaurant gets very busy, especially on special occasions so better to book. On weekday lunchtimes, there are several fixed-price menu options as well as the a la carte menu.

Don’t be put off by its location in the tourist zone – this place is also a firm favourite with locals enjoying family celebrations. Service is frenetic but friendly, and portions are generous. (Annette)
