We have eaten there 3 times and we have always had delicious local dishes at very reasonable prices. You can take your own wine although they do sell good wine too.

Our second visit, and this time it was better than the first, if that is possible. Great concept of small tapas starters and a main course. We had the smaller 4 tapas selection and main, which was more than adequate. Certainly a place to revisit, and it will be on the list !!

Excellent high quality food produced and efficiently served by friendly, knowledgeable staff. Tables are covered with white linen tablecloths with white linen napkins in this wonderful restaurant hidden in La Xara. A varied menu offers a range of tapas and other dishes that really are all quite outstanding. Choose from the interesting and creative menu or go with one of... More

DO NOT be fooled by the name of this restaurant, this is definitely not your average Tapas bar. Great food by any standards. Fantastic experience especially if you share each dish to broaden the tasting experience. The Sashimi Salmon is amazing!

Any visitor familiar with this area will know that La Xara is one of those places you tend to go on the way to, or back from, somewhere more important! But in this drive-through village there is now a genuine reason to stop and park - at night at least - beyond the Mas Y Mas supermarket. Encouraged by enthusiastic... More

We don't know how and why we have missed this gem for so many years. We were invited to a 60th birthday lunch with several other friends and were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the restaurant itself. Although quite small it seemed spacious and it was very busy on a Wednesday lunch time. We had the... More

I don't think Dougie Wougie could possibly have been to the same restaurant. Tapas i Vins is an amazing find. The food is tasty and very imaginative. Yes, it is expensive compared to a lot of other local restaurants (probably Dougie's main gripe), but if you have the selection of six tapas, it is quite reasonable (18 Euros). The fact... More

Oh dear. I don´t like writing negative reviews but I just can't recommend this restauarant. Most Spanish restaurants offer variations of the same basic dishes but this restaurant's menu was particularly bland. Service was unspiring too. Maybe it was just a bad day........... (doubt it..)

After living just a few kilometres from La Xara for 10 years (in fairness we are only living in Denia now!) we were amazed to find such a high quality bar/restaurant literally on our former doorstep! A lot of people (Brits) get put off by the very mention of Tapas but there is evidently Tapes and Tapes and this is... More

We have been here twice now, once as a couple & the second time we took 2 friends who also loved it. It is a small restaurant with modern decor & a well air-conditioned interior. As it is situated in the back streets of the village it only has room for a few small tables outside the front which in... More
