I didn't really enjoy my visit here. It's very formal and we didn't like some of the food eg duck liver. They did give us 2 free aperitifs though. We ordered lamb chateaubriand from the menu. The waiter said he would ask the chef if it was available and we heard no more. When the food arrived it was pork... More

Excellent restaurant albeit quite snobby. Wonderful food beautifully prepared. And with the bebest view in town. But it comes with a big price tag so be prepared!

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

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.

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...
