We had a fantastic time at La Taberna-its a great local restaurant serving up amazing tapas. There was plenty of variety and the dishes tasted really fresh-you can see that the food has been prepared with care and attention to detail is impressive. We enjoyed all our dishes and particularly the baby clams, tuna tartar & black rice with seafood!... More

Great food , service and gadgets but I would recommend that they dim the lights and the menu is a little confusing at times . I would recommend coming here for dinner .

We tried this restaurant due to a favourable write up on a travel guide. We didn't actually turn up until quite late about 1030pm and it was heaving. We struggled to get through the door, but when we battled through the dining area was quiet and reserved. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but didn't speak a lot of... More

Tasteful, tempting, AMAZING gourmet tapas...... We chose the tapas menu...... ...9 different kinds of tapas : 55€ for 2 persons...... ..You'll leave the restaurant with your stomach almost bursting..... Delicious tapas you'll remember forever!! The olive oil is surprisingly soft. Not the kind of sharp taste that olive oil normally are. It's because it's the "arbequina" sort. The restaurant has... More

We visited this restaurant after doing our research on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. There is a set menu but you can also order from the standard menu. We ordered around 7 dishes between us (we thought we'd need more but we were wrong!) and they were all amazing. The food was bought out really quickly and hot.... More

I've been to a lot of tapasbars and Cook spanish myself. At this taberna i ate The best croquetas de jamon y croquetas de pollo and patatas bravas (like papas from The canaries). The owner from Enredo Bar suggested this bar. Glad he Did!

This is clearly a very popular restaurant on the road directly behind the promenade in the centre of Alicante, near to the old town. It's a real gem. You can perch at the bar on high stools in the bar area or you can sit at a table upstairs or downstairs. It's lively and animated and was full from 8pm... More
