Having read these reviews my husband and I decided to find the restaurant yesterday (18 June 2014) for evening meal. We must have walked miles both along the sea front and up on the hills overlooking the sea. Yes, we had the correct address, even used a GPS and asked lots of people - no-one had heard of it and...

Went on a TripAdvisor recommendation, and wasn't disappointed. Great location - right on the promenade, facing the sea. Food was absolutely spot on - a version of a Ceaser salad to start, a steak and sole meunière to follow, and stunning desserts - panacotta and chocolate fondant. All were beautifully presented, and made from the best ingredients. And the price... More

I have visited the restaurant quite a few times and have never been disappointed! The staff are very helpful indeed and the chef is absolutely amazing! My husband is a stickler for having his food on a hot plate. This must be the ONLY place in Spain that can actually do this! (Not very hard!) The presentation of the food... More

I have visited this restaurant about 5 times now and have not been disappointed once! The food is outstanding and excellent value for money. I usually opt for the 3 course special which comes with a glass of wine or beer and bread and alioli. The portion sizes are very generous (which is unusual for a 3 course special) and... More

Just moved to the area and been here twice so far and its my favourite restaurant already. The food is contemporary but just right, not over the top. Delicious fresh menu and the best part is the price at the end. Staff are great too, friendly and attentive. It might not look busy at the beginning of the night compared... More

I live in Altea and have been to many of the restuarants along the front. I decided to give this one a go after I checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor first.
