We had been doing the rounds of all the furniture shops on the Almoradi Ruta del Meubles and by lunch time it was time for Tapas. We liked the look of La U and were not disappointed inside. Many Spanish were inside having the menu del dia, which looked to be good wholesome food. We settled for 4 plates of... More

Called here for coffee and was very happily surprised with the large inside of what had seemed such small premises. The inside was spotless, empty well before the Spanish lunch time. The tables were already set in the cafetaria and looked very welcoming. At the back of the building was another more formal eating area and it looked an excellent... More

We had visited La U several times before and always had an enjoyable meal. We decided to return. The meal arrived, Salpicon with mussels............... no mussels to be seen! I asked for stuffed peppers, hardly edible! Filet of sole followed...... well it was the strangest looking sole I had ever seen, the sole of my shoe would have tasted better.... More

As this is a Spanish restaurant do not expect English cuisine. The specials are all well priced and offer good food. The Menu del Dia is great value and offers a varied choice as are the various Tapa on offer.

We took a steer from a previous tripadvior review and were glad that we did. La U doesn't look much from the outside and the inside isn't that fantastic either. However, the most important thing (the food) is amazing ! We particularly liked Octopus Gallego as part of our tapas. Just one English speaker in the place (Jose) but that... More

bar la u is worth a visit if you are on holiday in almoradi.The food is very good and the tapas is very popular with the expats who live in the town.Menu del noche is worth the money at 9 euros.

Here is the place to have a good meal. It has the best value daily menu you can find. The autumn menu is the best with the lamb racks, used to be on Saturdays. Have invited many friends there and all have been very satisfied and thankfully.

We go to La U at least 3 times a week for tapas and Coffee, they always have such a great choice. In fact we are going there for Christmas lunch and it will be totally Spanish. The Chef is well known in the area and has won many awards. The restaurant takes part in the Artichoke week in November.... More
