We were a table of 4, arriving at Spanish lunchtime on Sunday which is around 2pm and in early September, it was a glorious day and the beach was packed due to the unusually hot summer. We chose the menu del dia which is 18€ a head including half a bottle of wine each. The service was efficient, courteous, and... More

A beautifully decorated modern lounge bar and restaurant. Atalaya has a very spacious terrace, decorated mainly in white giving it that modern, Mediterranean lounge-bar atmosphere. Its location on the second floor overlooking Arenal beach and it's comfortable sofas make it one of my favorite places in Javea for a drink. Prices are very reasonable and in summer Atalaya attracts a... More

We came here as friends had given the place a good review & we wanted to try somewhere different in Javea. The restaurant certainly has good views but there is no real atmosphere. The Croquetas starter was good but the Tempura prawn & fish not so. The fish was very overlooked & dry. The solomillo steak however was cooked to... More

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
