Still one of the best but slipping

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.

This is the kind of cooking where things are smothered in cheese, sauce, oil etc. Often tasty, but too heavy for me in the long run. I've dined here twice and got the same impression both times. The pig's trotters were perfect--better than at La Grande Cascade in Paris--but the mushrooms were... smothered.

We hadn't been to Denia or El Raset for three years. We always try to eat here several times on our holiday and it was as good as ever. We recognise most of the staff from previous visits and the service is always excellent. The food is a little different from the standard, using the best quality fish and meat.... More

We have been coming here for many years and have rarely been disappointed. Attentive service and creative spanish cooking with a good use of local ingredients. Well worth the price.
