Every time we visit Javea we make a point to eat here - the combination of the location, food and service make this a wonderful experience. Particularly enjoyed the cod and salmon dish this time round. And, of course, the cheesecake. One of our favourite restaurants anywhere. Take home a restaurant quality dish, pre-prepared from the sister business Delicioso on... More

Wonderful family run restaurant. Whenever we are in Spain, this is the meal we look most forward to. Food is perfect, wine is lovely, atmosphere is friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Even better they've opened up a frozen shop 'Delicioso' where you can buy their frozen meals.

A little away from the main tourist area so you'll need to seek this one out. Nice restaurant, nice menu, lovely staff. Whilst we found a couple of places we liked better in Javea, there's plenty to like about this place and they certainly have a regular local client base.

We had a lovely table for eight and were looked after by the proprietor's wife and daughter-excellent. I had the cheese soufflé to start with - to die for. What a starter. I then had the slow cooked lamb. Some wonderful spicy flavours. Crème Brule for pudding, all washed down with some lovely house wines. The fudge at the end... More

We have now visited La Cocina 3 times since September & each time we have been thrilled with our food, wine & the friendly and efficient service. I can highly recommend the cod & salmon dish & my husband thoroughly enjoyed the lamb. The complimentary fudge before we left was absolutely delicious!! If you are visiting Javea/Arenal, eat here!

Food, ambience and service were all very good and at a reasonable price. By far the best meal we've had during our week in Javea.
