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

Visited this place on a couple of occasions during our 10 day stay in alicante. Food is very good and reasonably priced. Had the tamaral red wine which was delicious but at 4.25 euros for a very small glass was slightly disappointing.

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. This is the best tapas I have had to date (I have also eaten in other gourmet tapas restaurants). The jamón is to die for; it melts in your mouth.

Nice interior, professional staff. Fresh food. Not expensive but not unexpensive. Not as friendly as other restaurants.

La Taberna is a great place to experience wonderful tapas, a bustling crowd, superb drinks and friendly, approachable service. We ate at the San Fernando location twice while we were on business for a week both times sitting at the bar, not normally my favorite location to sit BUT what a great experience. The food is so fresh and tasty,... More

We Ate here 2 x last week and thought the food was great. We really liked the Hake tempura, Spanish omelette, chorizo sausages and patatas bravas. The small beers at 2 Euros each were too pricey. Would recommend a snack or 2

We sat at the Explanada and enjoyed the nice weather & tapas. You get 9 different tapas served to fast one after the other. If they needed your table for the next guests. But the tapas itselfs were very good!! The Russian salad, tostada with jamon, the RAF tomatos with tuna, the cheese selection, the jamon Iberico, the boquerones ...... More
