Probably the best vsta from any restaurant in Javea!

We have been here for Menu del Dia a couple of times and it is such good value for money with half a bottle of house wine per person but for a comfortable, intimate evening meal it is just delightful, it does deserve to be busier because the view is exquisite. The food is well prepared and... read more

My wife and I have visited this restaurant on three occasions in the last couple of weeks and returned today (Saturday), only to be refused a window table. The tables weren't reserved, but the staff wanted to save them for four people. On previous visits (midweek) they were happy to sit us by the window, but not on such a... More

The Atalaya Restaurant is one of the premier locations in Javea situated on the Arenal with views over the Bay of Javea and the Montgo. Before your meal you can take an aperitif in the open bar area to the left of the restaurant. The bar is well appointed with quality furniture to enhance the overall impression of a relaxed... More

We've been living in Javea for almost two years and are slowly working our way through the restaurants both in Javea and the surrounding towns.There are some really good restaurants - and some poor ones - but Atalaya has to be the best. Views to die for, excellent service, and food that can't be bettered. Do try it, well worth... More

Had lunch today at Atalaya for the first time. Really enjoyed all the three courses and it was really good value at €15 per person including half a bottle of wine each and a starter of very nice bread and aioli and tomato. Very efficient, friendly service. Fantastic view of the Arenal but the terrible weather made the Montgo disappear... More

The views are awesome, but they wouldn't let us sit by the window "in case a group with four people would come" (we were two). The restaurant was almost empty, by the way. The service was not very professional. Overpriced.

We have reviewed Atalaya with TripAdvisor in the past mainly because we have a villa locally and therefore feel able to comment on its consistency once the main tourists have departed. It is therefore interesting to see if the high standard they set, continues throughout the year. As a local I can certainly say this is the case. You can... More

We were looking for somewhere that we hadn't visited before and spotted this restaurant by chance. Not too easy to find as it is up a flight of steps and does not have any frontage at ground level. We chose a table in the outside 'chill out' area we gave us great views over the whole beach, rather than in... More
