    As in the case of our family and I do not know if putting a 0 or less something because all ... lousy food, service, treatment of the owner ...

    Let's say upon arrival we had table reserved for 20 (there were many other, but certain things have no excuse) and I already noticed that to have it booked for some days, we had gotten a little tight (some of us we had to apelotonar by corners but it's because fit more customers on the terrace right?) but hey, I'm not a person of delicate requirements and did not mind too much.

    Since there were so many of us, in order not to bundle the waiters, we wrote down everything we wanted on a piece of paper and we were telling it grouped in first and second courses and then what the children wanted to be brought before. We were waiting for the food (the children even) more than 3 / 4 of hour, nor the drink they brought us (in fact there were some adults who finished their first course and still had no drink and that they were only cokes in those cases) . When they finally brought the food to the children, first you had to see the pint of spaghetti but then you had to try the mixed paella (invention that I still can't digest, never better said, but well that's not the fault of this restaurant Well, this recipe is already established throughout the Levantine coast and part of the peninsula) ... not a drop of salt! but nothing, not that he was bland, is that he had forgotten salt. Well, who has never forgotten to salt something or perhaps put it twice by mistake? but we told the waiter (who was the owner) and instead of saying normal "I'm sorry, I'll tell the cook" or "I'm going to try it" ... something like that. Well, no, he swelled his chest as if it were a personal offense and the man told us that his wife was the cook and that in his life he had never tasted better paella than his wife's. Which we did not discuss but he had to understand that he had no salt but nothing, he was still in his thirteen and came to say that if the paella was like that it was because maybe he had to be like that, sorry? that you sneak into a guiri or someone who has never tried a paella but we are precisely from Valencia. Well, for three or four times he came with the same song and the adults who had asked for paella at the end, they wanted to change it for their chulería but the man told them that those paellas would come out of another ... LIE ... other paellas that came out without salt. Finally the man ventured to try it in the kitchen and came with a salt shaker saying that it was true, that he had no salt.
    I tell all this takes place in almost 2 hours we were waiting for the 2 dishes on the menu.

    Main Course just say that one of the people at the table asked what had garnish grilled tuna because it is allergic to tomatoes and wanted to make sure he was told that picaeta garlic and parsley and potato salad, perfect. When we got to bring the second, tuna (which porsupuestísimo tuna had little, was emperor) had green beans garnished with a questionable tomato sauce, is communicated to the waiter that a certain person can not take tomatoes and bring the same piece emperor on another plate of chips that are put to bravas (and leaving a bag of frozen super) if you gave back to the cut grouper ... was all basted tomato. Total, that person went to eat the main course because asking and tardasen 1 / 2 time bring something new was an ordeal.
    And the people who asked piquillo peppers stuffed? for nothing, there had the others waiting while we ate the main courses to finally tell you that there were no peppers, very professional.

    I do not forget the drinks! We ordered red summer ... and they wanted to sneak 3 jars 1 / 2 liter for 15 adults and all times the owner came to bring things did not realize they had the wrong jars until one of us told him and finally they brought us great pitchers, but hey, they wanted us to brew small it is a fact.

    What else? Oh yeah ... After eating came to pick up several times and none asked us for dessert, when they finished collecting we had half an hour without anyone to visit my sister and my cousin they went to tell them we wanted dessert. We were told desserts, breads were exactly Calatrava 3, 5 lemon tarts and custards and ice cream then. As I love the bread of Calatrava (which is supposed to be flan cake soaked in honey) I throw myself to ask the first to ultimately turn out to be normal but with cinnamon creme brulee which gives me a lot Asquith cinnamon. Yes, I was without dessert. And finally cafes (when we get them back out to order them), summing up ... my mother was left without her coffee because going to ask again and I almost well and because I got heavy.

    Anyway, we left there at 18: 30h afternoon.

    Good luck to those who choose this restaurant

      Hi Erika, do not know what Kitchen Lola was you or if you had very bad luck, but I was last year in Denia the second half of July and went several days for lunch and dinner at this restaurant, and the food was great, especially rice, which in those days I had time to try the seafood paella, mixed paella, black rice and rice a banda.

      What if I give you the reason is that many days, usually on weekends, were a bit slow, but as we were on vacation we were not in a hurry.
      This year we return to Denia and of course repeat.

        I'm from Denia and have eaten many times at this restaurant, and also I've spent something like Erica, the paella was malisima lacked salt and tasted like it was made without broth, that I think it happens only day they have a lot work and do not have enough staff because they are quiet sun days the food comes out good. and I have not been eating paella, but rice or other side dish if and I liked
