Really nice and imaginative Spanish food with a modern twist

We liked so much El Posit that we went a couple of days after. They have a selection of tapas at a very good price. These were delicious and an interesting mix of flavors. I certainly recommend this restaurant. It's in a beautiful setting in Villajoyosa looking at the sea.

The food was very,very good. We tasted combinations which surprised us all. The restaurant also has a goal to use food from the local area, sea food figured a lot on the menu. The grilled octopus was melt-in-the-mouth tender. It was all good.

This is a very unassuming little gold mine, over looking the Sea. It is not a posh or refined setting, but it is very quaint and the staff are so friendly and passionate about what they are delivering. We were a group of 4 ladies enjoying a weekend away, and asked the waiter to surprise us, with his favourite dishes.... More

Great Restaurant on the beach. We had the Tapas Lunch Menu for only 10 Euro's and it was amazing! The place is very busy, all Spanish people. The food is great, very nice wine and kind staff. We loved it!

The Tapas menu is quite wonderful and offers a selection of out of the ordinary dishes which are truly mouth-watering. When we arrived at 9 o'clock there was only one table occupied but by 10 it was well filled, such is the popularity of this place. Other than the restaurant manager there was only one waiter, a young man who... More

I was recommended by a local. Arrived fairly early without a booking and ordered the chef's selection of tapas. Exquisite! Every little dish a masterpiece of flavours and presentation. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive, the local wine delicious. Finished with two tiny desserts - the "petit suisse casero" was a revelation - and a glass of sweet wine.... More

Following an absence on my part of more than a year, a recent visit has prompted this latest review; Toni's food just keeps on getting better. He is a talented, innovative chef who likes to experiment (I mean this in a good way). Of course there are staples on the menu – a daily rice dish (squid and artichoke is... More

Recommended to us by Heiki, an excellent choice! with great tapas. We made a reservation, mentioning that I am a vegetarian, and they really 'pulled out the stops', even turning off the floodlight when we asked (not very romantic). A very capable and friendly team - see photo. Oh the deserts were scrummy too, and reasonably priced. Our whole meal... More
