One of the better restaurants in Alicante!

The location of this restaurant is great, on the Gabriel Miro square. Lovely to eat outside in summer. The food is good, well prepared, with a mix of classic Spanish tapas (e.g., croquettas) and international food (such as Italian dishes). The cocktails here are highly recommended!

On our first night we found this restaurant by accident. We found quiet some local people on the terrace and decided to try it. Best decision ever! The food was special, very well spiced and original! We will definitely go her again and recommend this to everyone who wants something different from the "normal" touristic restaurants in this area.

We've been using Plaza Canalla for some years now as the launch point for a night out in Alicante. We have used it only for drinks and have never been disappointed. The location is stunning. Plaza Gabriel Miro is like an urban rainforest: a handsome square that is dominated by colossal hanging fig trees that create glorious shade for a... More

This is one of my favorite places for a great spanish taste. The restaurant has tables by the shade of huge trees on Plaza Gabriel Miro, right in Alicante center. They do have tables inside if you prefer. The food is fantastic. Well elaborated dishes from spanish cuisine and great tapas too. They always have the best selection of local... More

We ate here on a sunny weekday afternoon. We sat outside and had the 'posh tapas' which the previous reviewer referred to and we both thought it was lovely and good value for money.

This place basically serves posh tapas, and they're not even good. It's rather difficult to get tapas wrong especially if this is in Spain! We had five items and two beers and the bill came to 47 Euros. The restaurant looks nice from outside but there's no one eating inside. We should have taken the cue and legged it but... More
