A must visit on our many holidays in Javea. Laurie is a charming hostess and Cliff has an imaginative flair in the kitchen. It is a light and attractive dining room with views to Javea's windmills. Parking outside and an easy walk to the port.

Beautiful food. We were rather nervous when we first arrived as we had a vegetarian in our party but were so accommodating. Maybe have a little more choice for vegetarian's would be lovely. Would definitely eat there again

Always made welcome and the food is excellent and has been on every visit. The service is also friendly and efficient, just a little on the pricy side

We have dined here four times now with family members who have a villa in Javea. It is their fave place to go and we can see why. We have enjoyed our food here on all out visits. It is all freshly prepared and if I recall correctly all gluten free. Now usually I stay away from gluten free food... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants and is run by an English family who offer absolutely fantastic food and service. My goats cheese starter was delicious and also the raspberry panacotta dessert which I will definitely be going back for. They also offer an excellent Take Away service at a very reasonable price.
