We found this restaurant quite by chance driving away from Denia - it is superb. The owner and staff are most friendly but more important the food was excellent. We had the pancakes, mine with sausage, onion & cheese - my wife with bacon. They were superb - I then followed up with the home made... read more

We found this place on trip advisor towards the end of our stay in Oliva Nova and it was without doubt our best find. The food was fantastic to say the least, the staff and owner compliment the food to a tee! With out doubt we would recommend this place as 5* and cant wait to go back. What ever... More

If you are not sure of what to make of a Dutch owned restaurant in Valencia...then relax. It's great. After 30 years in the same place it has a charmingly soft atmosphere, immaculately clean and is so professionally friendly. Spanish ingredients served so beautifully...the skewer of large juicy scallops with the peeled langostine wrapped in pancetta were sublime. The pancake... More

This restaurant serves wonderful steaks, we had stroganoff and steak in a port sauce. It melted in your mouth, served with 2 kinds of potatoes and vegetables, you don't need a starter as a salad is served with the main course, we had the dessert that gives you a small portion of everything, to die for!! Well served, beautifully presented,... More

Having gone for a coastal walk from Molinell to Denia we succumbed to the garden charms of Hero. One of the best decisions we have ever made. The food is extraordinary good - I had smoked herrings followed by Salmon en croutes and my wife had seafood cocktail and battered fish- all of which was cooked to perfection with excellent... More

Went with friends this evening, OK service A1, welcoming attentive and they were busy. Food, lovely spicy sausage as a tapa, I then ordered chicken liver pate, so light and tasty, then I had a kebab of king prawns wrapped in bacon with scallops, the potatoes offered, sauté, chips and mash, veggis cauli, red cabbage, zucchini and carrots. Just perfect... More

As usual top food and service. We've been here several times and tried different dishes - never been disapointed. Sole, kebab and solomillo are favorites

Just had another excellent meal here. Scallop and prawn kebabs, fillet steaks, hake in prawn sauce. All delicious and cook just the way we asked. Desserts are very tasty. Waiting staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Looking forward to coming back next year.

I've been coming here for more than 30 years and have never had a poor meal or service, but I'm reviewing now because as my wife was struggling to see the menu this August (she'd forgotten her glasses), unbidden the waiter produced three pairs of specs of varying strengths kept for just such occasions! Bet not too many places offer... More
