You could almost imagine you were in Ibiza when you visit Atalaya. Lots of big comfy white sofas for lounging about on, palms trees & greenery, ambient lighting, dj playing choons. Occupying one of the best spots on the Arenal, Atalaya overlooks the bay from above the restaurants. Amazing selection of gins, whiskeys, & cocktails. Nice snacky menu (kids loved... More

Appalling service from bar staff who seem like they would rather have a suite of tables and chairs looking inviting, rather than entertain actual customers! Asked to move to make the place look more appealing and given the look of death when we expressed our wishes to remain seated in our original spot. Pretentious and overpriced. Please remember we ARE... More

We went on Sunday lunchtime without a booking but were fortunate to be seated overlooking the bay. The view is perfectly matched with the food, which is beautifully presented and tastes fantastic. The waiting staff were the best we experienced in Javea, super friendly and attentive.

We only had drinks here, but they served the best Pina Colada I have ever had. The view of the bay is amazing and they have reclining seats to veg out on.

We had 2 meals whilst in Javea and whilst both were excellent, I felt that the attention to detail here was impressive. We had a table overlooking the bay and had starters and mains with a bottle of Rioja. Service was very attentive yet not overbearing. Food was excellent. The decor and lighting was most conducive to a romantic dinner... More

We went to the spacious terrace and chillout bar of Atalaya to escape the crowds and noise of the beach bars. It was relaxing with masses of space, comfortable furniture and wonderful views. The waitress, Vicky, was very friendly and efficient. The menu was varied and reasonably priced - I had salmon with scallops and vodka and mango sauce, my... More

We went for lunch with friends and had the menú del día. Although we have lived in Javea for 8 years it was our first visit. The location is fantastic with great views across the bay, and the staff were very friendly and attentive BUT the meal was very expensive for what we got. The choices were limited and the... More

We went with friends to Atalaya which apparently means 'lookout' and not only enjoyed the wonderful views across Javea Bay but also excellent food with first class service and a very reasonable bill. The menu del dia is excellent value at Euros 15 which includes half a bottle of wine. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak very good... More
