Just a block off the main explanada, this is an amazing restaurant and deli! The variety and quality of the choices was the best we had in our 10 days in Alicante! Not to be missed is the baked goat cheese with honey and herbs! Save some of the bread that is brought to the table to enjoy this amazing... More

Had a lovely meal at this restaurant on our last evening in Alicante. We received excellent service and when they did not have any fresh orange to accompany a drink they went out and got some! We both enjoyed a fabulous fillet steak and enjoyed our meal.

We had two kinds of paella and the charcuterie plate to start. The cheese was so fresh and and the paella was to die for. Our server was very pleasant and everything was reasonably priced. They also had a tasting menu that looked great!

We enjoyed a very pleasant dinner here with friends. The restaurant staff are excellent in terms of level of service and recommendations. The quality of the tapas was excellent in our opinion. They also had a good and very reasonably priced wine list. We enjoyed a 2005 bottle of Vina Ardanza for about €30. Of all the tapas dishes we... More

Very lively, pretty tapas bar with tables in the back. Extensive menu. My wife and I are still reliving the "bikini" sandwiches; Iberico ham, manchego cheese and shaved black truffles. I also enjoyed the lamb kidneys sautéed in a sherry wine reduction. Taberna also serves an olive oil varietal at the table with bread and olives, (it was piqual the... More

After a brief visit last year then supporting reviews, we decided to give it a go this year. Bread and oil, green with more green salad...oily monkfish and smaller than average fillet even when the large size was asked for...at least the white wine passed the test. At over 80 euros, it didn't really scream value for money too. We... More

There were 5 of us and we arrived at about 9.30. It was busy, and there was some confusion as to who was our waiter. The service was indifferent, but friendly. The quality of the food helped to compensate, but we still felt we had not had an exceptional eating experience. If you enjoy Tapa consider going to the La... More

Very good food, try the tapas menu and you will be surprised. If dining at the bar you can see all the different dishes being served. Try the Tarima Hill red wine. I can also recommend Grilled green asparagus with ̈romesco ̈ sauce and steak with fresh garlic.
