We had a menú of the day, and it was all perfect. First dish were "croquetas", which were really tasty. As second dish we had paella, which has been once of the best I had eaten, all this with nice views to the wonderfull beaches...of Torrevieja. I highly recommend this local, as well as the service, specially Nicolas.More

Even though this is on the sea front at Torrevieja, (yes I am a bit prejudiced, believing that many restaurants that has a location like that in tourist areas do not have to try as hard…) you do not want to miss this place if...you going to eat seafood. We had a plate with Serrano and cheese for starter, very high quality, and a plate mix fried seafood with a lobster salad for main course. It was fantastic! And do not miss out on their sangria, maybe the best I have tasted, a secret recipe… The service was very good, nice and attentive without crowding you. I highly recommend Restaurante Vela CentroMore
