Great food and service as always!

We have eaten at La Cocina quite a few times now since moving here last year and have always found the food to be great and the service excellent....nothing is too much trouble. We recently had friends to stay from the UK and one of them is quite particular about what she likes to eat. We had a... read more

We had a lovely celebration meal at La Cocina where we had a warm welcome. We had good service, with help choosing from the menu. I asked for a change of vegetables and this was done for me, no trouble. The chef understands a variety of dietary needs. The decor was smart and stylish. Would go there again and would... More

Although many friends love this restaurant I have now been on a few occasions and have found it disappointing - the food for me is nothing to write home about - Maybe it is the lack of ambiance or the situation (ie no views) The staff try very hard to be attentive and helpful - but there are many restaurants...

We keep coming back to La Cocina for special meals - Valentine's, birthdays, meals out with family and friends. Interesting food, never boring or ordinary. English/ Indian / Spanish ideas with a twist, all delicious. Great decor and friendly staff.

We have now eaten at La Cocina at least half-a-dozen times over the last year, and the thing that impresses us is not just the excellence of the food, and the great service, but the consistency of both. It's one thing to "get it right" on occasion, but to do so every time is much more difficult, and for us... More

We went with friends for a pre show meal. The food and service excellent, but I did become very thirsty later in the evening, I wonder if there is maybe a bit too much salt out in the food. Apart from that small point, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The Javea Players pre theatre meals are a fun night for us as it gives us an opportunity to run a menu that is in theme with the play, so we are delighted that you appreciated it. More

I've eaten here many times with my family over the last few years so feel confident in recommending it to anyone visiting Javea or the surrounding areas. The food is consistently good on every visit and we've eaten in peak and low seasons and got the same high quality service and tasty food. Our latest visit in September did not... More

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.
