  • Speaking about the mountain, not any restaurant... ;) So we decided to accept the challenge with my girlfriend and went to climb this peak. The weather was really hot, the sun was shining in 32 celsiu...  more »
  • We were here in Cala Finestrat last year, and fell in love with a restaurant called El Arenel, partly for the incredible food, but mostly because of our favourite waiter, George. Well, as we returned ...  more »
  • PUIG CAMPANA, 1406 m above sea level, is the second highest peak of the province of Alicante (after 1555 Aitana meters), in the region of Marina Baixa. But the most important of the Puig Campana is a mountain of legend... A legend for having lived in a weekend like this: the legend of the TAJO DE ROLDÁN, well known in Alicante, less out of here. Roland was one of the commanders of Frank Emperor Charlemagne. Legend has it that he came to our lands and fell in love with a maid. Thus began a love affair that was truncated when a spell predicted that the girl would die at the time when the last ray of the Sun touched your skin. Roldán, desperate, climbed to the top of Puig Campana, drew his sword and broke a piece of the mountain to prolong the life of your loved one. When the Sun disappeared behind the Puig Campana, the girl died and Roldán, crazy pain, grabbed the piece of rock that had cut off and threw it into the sea, thus giving rise to the island of Benidorm. Roldán took in arms her lover and stepped guided by the silvery glow of the moon. He crossed the beach and entered the sea. This is how came to the newly-created islet and deposited there the girl, that never spread. And so as we look at this mountain, with its Court of Roldán, majestic in a region as beautiful as the Marina Baixa. And we enjoy it...

  • Lovely sea food restaurant...great location.
  • Very good place to eat. Original and quality!
  • The grilled calamari was poor, paella decent. The bill contained 10% tip and also the price for some bread and mayonnaise which were brought when we arrived - without being asked.
  • It was the best menu del dia I've had in Spain! The bill including a large bottle of water and the service charge came out to just under 20 euro without wine or coffee but including dessert. There were THREE first plates including a nice mixed salad. Then I had a HUGE pan of seafood paella which was cooked perfectly. I suggest that you ask for no salt - you can always add salt at the table. Best view in town, tablecloths, linen napkins, well dressed waiters who are friendly and casual - not snooty. I came in at 2 pm with beach attire on - no problem. They serve the menu del dia til around 3:30. I'm stuffed!
  • Great food great value for money in a beautiful location
