One of my favourite restaurants. These guys get it right every time. The menu does not change much each year, but the choice is varied and the quality of the food is superb. The wine list is good and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is fun and lively and the service is great even when it is busy (which is... More

Xef Pirate is excellent. Food is great, service is friendly, atmosphere is great. The menu doesn't change all that much from one visit to the next, but that's a good thing. They have a great selection of wines at very reasonable prices too.

This is the best tapas in town! Refined, well presented, affordable, etc. Give them a call before you go, it will be difficult to just pass by and sit, it's famous!!

This quirky restaurant on a slope in the old town caters to the adventurous gourmet palate. Not cheap but reasonable for what is on offer. Meat and 2 veg lovers keep walking.

When you think of tapas it is easy to have certain expectations of cheap bar food. Forget that here! This is gastro tapas - with style and panache. The restaurant is eclectic and you can eat on two level inside plus there are a couple of outside tables. It is situated in the picturesque old town of Altea nestling under... More

This is a small, modern tapas bar with a couple of tables outside (but you are very close to the passing cars so I won't recommend it), some high tables on the ground floor and a small restaurant on the 1st floor. It is close to the Church at the top of the old Town so it full of tourists... More
