If you get the opportunity this restaurant is a must. Fantastic food and service. Try the Suckling Pig (Cochinillo) or in fact all things on the menu plus try a local Alicante wine (such as Estrecho). The food was so good we went to this restaurant twice in 10 days.

We ate dinner here one night last week and the food could not be faulted - everything was excellent. What was a little disconcerting though was that there were 4/5 waiting staff standing chatting, laughing and joking, right next to a couple who were dining and I doubt the couple could have heard themselves speak. The tables are really squeezed... More

Very nice place and fantastic place. Ask for a seat in the front part of the restaurant, at or near the bar.

7/10 for this fine restaurant. The food was really very very good. The ambiance felt very Spanish and I got the impression that a lot of locals eat here, which is always a good sign. The service lets it down slightly in my view, not much help when we asked questions (although we don't speak Spanish, so our fault as... More

This was our second visit here. We came last November and had a lovely meal. We opted to have the set meal of 9 tapas for 27 Euros. However do be aware that they will not substitute any dish even if you are allergic to one of the ingredients. They will bring bread when you arrive but this is not... More

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
