Eat at The Abiss on the last night of our stay at Gran Hotel Sol y Mar. Absolutely fantastic and a memorable experience. The food was spectacular along with the service. The dishes served would rival any Michelin Star rated restaurant. Overall would highly recommend.

Stunning views. Unfortunately customer service is not something that this restaurant knows much about. We made a booking online and then when we came in the place with 100% empty and they gave us a bit of a hard time because they couldn't find our booking in the system. Then once we got seated the waiter was quite stiff. We... More

The quality of the food and service was excellent but some of the tapas style dishes were a little too rich for our palate i.e. foie gras. We had a bottle of decent cava and 2 small bottles of mineral water and the meal (7 tapas and 2 deserts) and it came to over Euros 110 which seemed top end... More

This was an exceptional evening from start to finish. I took two guests out for the tasting menu. We were treated like royalty and for what we paid it was a very cheap 3 hours. I live in London and eat in a lot of Michelin starred restaurants. This was up there with almost all of them. The morcilla de... More

The current ranking of Abiss among restaurants in Calpe can hardly be reasonably explained. after a fabulous dinner with the current Menu Degustacion, for the modest price of €49per person, underpinned by a wine card leaving no aspiration, even high-standing, open, I would certainly rate this dining experience worth of a 15 points in Gault Millaut, and very close to...

The restaurant is part of the Sol y Mar Hotel where we are staying. We decided to have an early (by Spanish standards) meal there at 20:30. We did not book. The restaurant was empty - not one table was occupied. We were turned contemptuously away and when we complained we were shown a book which purported to show a... More

What an amazing meal! We made reservations and requested a table near the window, with an incredible view of the Mediterranean Sea. From the moment we walked in, we were treated like royalty and the service was impeccable. Elegant, sophisticated and modern decor. We chose the menu of the day. It was so wonderful. Small portions, but they kept coming... More

Loved the Tapas menu as it was extensive and mouthwatering - small portions but full of flavour. Attention top detail was immense as even the dished used to plate the food were unusual. Staff limited in English but we were in Spain without any Spanish so just enjoyed the experience.
