Extremely popular and busy high end tapas bar. If you swing by at 10pm good luck being able to get in the door. 8pm is a better bet, or maybe lunch. We tried several tapa and some oysters here and at their nearby location on the explanada, all of which were excellent. The highlights were the pan... read more

Turned up at 10:15 to a full and bustling restaurant and the wonderful staff managed to squeeze us in. Fantastic, first rate food, lovely staff and a complimentary aperitif to get us our the door. Life is good at La Taberna, thanks for having us.

I shouldn't really be writing this review as I'd like to keep this one a secret! By far the best tapas restaurant in Alicante. We have probably visited 6 times over the summer and the quality of the food is consistently high matched with outstanding and friendly service. Fabulous wine list as well.

Excellent quality. Something for most taste buds. Can be a little crowded depending what time of day you go.

The restaurant is very well positioned, just of the quay area. The food is traditional style Spanish food with a slight modern twist. Decor in restaurant is nice. We don't go for tapas and had starter and main instead. We had tuna belly salad and garlic prawns to start which were simple and well made. We both had the monk... More

This is a great place for up market tapas. Choose the menu de tapas for an 8 course taster of tapas. The sister restaurant Terazza del Gourmet offers the same menu Al fresco in the explanada
