Best restaurant by far in port area of Javea

This is an excellent family run business. The food is extremely good and the atmosphere friendly and very pleasant. It is not often I can recommend English restaurants in Spain but this is the exception. You will not be disappointed.

Whenever my wife and I are presented with a menu couched in terms of pretentious verbosity, our hearts sink. The food so often does not live up to it. And this was the case at La Cocina. The dishes we ordered were uninspiring, the meat tough. Coupled with a half-hearted service, this convinced us never to return.

A quiet word with the waitress and we would have certainly changed your dish for you, as you were not happy with it. I disagree with you on your comments on our... More

We always start with Crepe Suzette- wonderful. Laurie is an excellent Front of House. With my poor hearing it can be a bit too noisy. Amazing menu and wine list. Very popular so do book. Thoroughly recommended.
