Food was averagely good. We had croquetas and then a paella and an entrecote for me. The restaurant is more like a winery, so if you like wine, this is definately one of the place for you. The price is average, but what really makes me give 5 stars is the waiter... a super kind and nice person who helps... More

I found the place good but not excellent. The menu is kind of limited. The gambas were ok but nothing extraordinary, they were so little to be considered a main plate. The service was good but not exceptional as I read in most if the other reviews. Considering there were only 3 tables taken it could have been better.

We found this restaurant through Tripadvisor and we're really glad we did. We had a lovely wander along the promenade before stepping about 100 metres up a side road past a lovely bar to find this friendly place. We loved the cheese selection and the croquettes were sublime! It's an inside eating experience, but on a hot evening we welcomed... More

The lunchtime menu is fantastic value. €11 for 4 courses including bread, wine & coffee. I had steak frites for main course and meat was tender and flavoursome. My girlfriend had aubergine in honey and gives it the veggie thumbs up too.

This place is as reviewed, excellent service, clean and friendly environment and felt a bit like a jamie oliver style restaurant somewhat. We had an awful experience somewhere else where we left €20 euros worth of no good paella and walked into Bodeguita around 10pm where we were greeted with a smile and served to perfection. Couldnt fault it really.... More

This is a family-owned restaurant run by brothers Jose and Florian and is so good we came here to eat four times during our ten-day stay in Alicante. Bodeguita 1999 is located in the -centre, a short step from the Esplanade in calle Bailen. The restaurant is wonderfully air-conditioned and is configured so that you have a choice of tables... More

Nice, modern restaurant that can be easily reached. The service was very good, the selection of wines was excellent but even from local beers they had some interesting choices. The tapas were nice (expect tiny pieces), the kitchen was flexible to the extra needs and the 2-person ox t-bone steak was perfectly done. It was also open relatively early, which... More

Stayed in alicante for ten days. Best eating establishment by a mile! Great Gambas and such a warm welcoming. Brothers florian and Jose give customer service as their priority. Food is faultless and reasonably priced.... Please go there!!!
