Restaurant Paraiso - Parcent

Bedlam - Comment

What a great night we had at Restaurant Paraiso last night.

It was our wedding anniversary a few days ago and we decided to finish the week off at one of our favourite eating houses, on the outskirts of the village of Parcent, on the Costa Blanca.

We weren’t disappointed. The welcome from Victoria and her staff at Restaurant Paraiso was as warm as ever, it made us feel special - but there again, they make everyone feel special - something that makes you want to go back. The weather was kind, the food absolutely delicious, the entertainment, provided by ‘John The Fiddler’, nothing short of terrific - a perfect evening all round.

Congratulations, Victoria and David, for providing us with such a great venue - long may your food shower down on us.

The views from Restaurant Paraiso are magnificent; and when we arrive, we can’t help but stand and gaze at the spectacle. You can see for miles, right across the Jalon Valley. The interior d├ęcor has some great quirks that I love, like the ancient olive press by the bar that looks as if it was part of the original building - it‘s massive - and the old, agricultural, flour-measuring device by the entrance.

All in all, what with the food and entertainment and the welcome we had, it was a successful night. It was a shame that I couldn’t stay the whole evening, but I hurt my back a couple of days ago shifting a statue from my terrace, and I began to be uncomfortable, so we had to leave early - but I loved it all the same.
