Excellent Choice

La Taberna was an excellent choice located easily just off The Esplanade in Alicante, SP. Nice decor, great food, attentive staff. Great choice for our mid afternoon (Spanish style) lunch for four (4).

We went here on the recommendation of the staff at our hotel. We got there early for dinner (7:30) but were invited in, shown to our table, and given wine and dinner menus. It took the server more than 20 minutes to ask our drink order and then another 10 to bring us our wine. I wondered if this was... More

We called in on the off chance and were lucky to get a table as it was very busy. There was a lot to choose from on the menu (which made a nice change as a vegetarian!) but we went for the tortilla, spinach, croquetas (not for me!) and patatas bravas. As is usual in tapas restaurants they came when... More

We have been there twice. First time only two people and it was very good. The service as it should be and all in all a very positive experience and that why we came back. However, second time we were 10 people and that they could simply not manage. Not the waiter nor the kitchen and the way they served... More

Very good food ,a bit designer style,at a reasonable price perfect service and a good selection of vines, ideal for a special treat. Its a bit cramped for a upper class place but certainly worth a visit. will go back when in Alc

We came here after having the restaurant recommended to us. We booked a table for 8pm and upon arriving we were shown to our table. We ordered our drinks, but there was some confusion. Still water....we got sparkling. My husband had to request his drink to two different waiters as the first one didn't know the brand of vodka my... More

This restaurant was amazing! Service was fantastic and food was awesome!! The restaurant was packed out when we arrived and they were straight up from the start informing us that we needed to leave by 10.30 which still gave us 1.5 hrs, which was enough time to enjoy fabulous wine and food!! I would HIGHLY recommend this place!!

Very good food, I had the menu of tapas and some paella and it was very tasty all of it. In my opinion is a little bit overpriced but overall it was a nice experience.

I visited the place with some colleagues. The menu is tapas, but everything is high quality, and extremely well made. Everything was perfect, but I would single out the beef with fois gras, the sweetbreads and the asparagus. The service very good and prompt. Excellent wine list with lots of options. It's not a cheap place but it's on another... More

We have visited this great restaurant a few times whilst on trips to Alicante. The whole experience is first class. Great atmosphere, great staff and great food. Locals and visitors use this restaurant and who would blame them for choosing this gem.
