Fine dining

quite simply, excellent food, and always the same high quality with really attentive staff. We usually go for a pre theatre dinner, for which they prepare a special menu.

We visited this wonderful restaurant this evening on the recommendation of friends and family and had a fantastic meal. The food was truly magnificent. The pate was great and the steak was perfect. All presented beautifully by our attentive hosts. I highly recommend this restaurant and will most definitely be returning on my next visit to the area.

So far my fav restaurant in Xabia It's set a new benchmark for me. All the food we had was well cooked and delicious I had the moorish lamb and my wife the beef in Catalan sauce, we usually swap half way through and I can say both dishes were packed with flavour I couldn't choose between the two.

A very friendly family restaurant yet professional in sourcing produce, preparation and presentation. We tried the €15 lunch menu this time, two courses and a glass of excellent house wine. Cliff is an expert at seeking out quality wines and they are reasonably priced. The cheese soufle was to die for and the chicken fillet in a fig reduction with... More

Excellent variety of food which pleased our guests who were visiting. Staff/owners are very friendly and helpful Although the food presentation, taste and quality is of excellent standard I did feel that the starters and desserts are a bit overpriced. This would not stop me returning as overall the food and resturant are of excellent quality

Returned - it's a regular place for us to visit - and we had our usual excellent meal. Service was friendly although strangely for a Saturday night in half term it was very quiet. The choice of starters and mains and puddings were very good and had a good bottle of wine
