Wonderful restaurant

I went to 4 restaurants in the 5 days I was in Denia for business and this was the best. A sophisticated menu, reasonably priced set menu. Venue is beautiful!

First visit based on TA reviews. Went for lunch. Appetisers of cream cheese and salmon on a spoon plus dates in pastry - lovely. Shared a starter of focus gras filled ravioli - mouthwatering. Then a seafood paella which was really tasty and cooked to perfection. Great bottle of Ribero del Duero ( Arzuaga Crianza 2012) and coffee - €79... More

We have been going to El Raset for at least 6/7 years and it still as good as the first time we went. We had the menu de noche (menu of the night) which was 7 courses all very tasty and well worth the 30 euros per person.

Had the big grilled shellfish plate - and the quality is not what it was previous years, lobster was small and overcooked - so was the denia shrimps... But still it is a great place for the fish baked in salt!

We first dined at El Raset some years ago when it was the number one restaurant on my all-time list. Unfortunately the food just wasn't up to the same standard. My steak was a little dry & the whole dish unimaginative, whilst my partner's fish stew was rather expensive for what he got. Although the restaurant wasn't busy & we... More

We have been going to this restuarant for 10 years. We always saw it as the best in Denia town. Sadly it seems to have dumbed down. The main courses used to have meat with great sauces but these seem to have disappeared. One of their crowning glories were their deserts. This is no longer the case. They now only... More

We've dined here on several occasions and never been disappointed with the food or the service. The restaurant has an inside or outside dining room depending on the weather. A good menu and wine list, but can be a little overpriced.

I went here on our last night in Denia. We had been looking for a nice place with the killer Paella that we knew Spain had to offer...we just didn't know where. After reading a bunch of reviews on TA in a cafe pre-dinner , we decided on this place. It was really amazing. I think we lucked out because... More

This is a high quality restaurant with an interesting and very good value fixed price menu. The a la carte is also good and there is a varied wine list with plenty of choice. The tables inside are nicely spaced and service from the 2 regular waiters is good.

We had an excellent meal here in January. Beautifully presented and well cooked food, full of flavour. An extra amuse bouche was nicely judged, portions sizes not too big, which is what we prefer. Plenty of choice of fish on the menu.
