Paco is back again !

Paco and Marie have re-opened after their closure (due to illness). They must have found it difficult at first trying to replicate their outstanding success from the past 20 years or so. Finding the correct chef to replace the original one who obviously (during the 18 month closure) had to move... read more

Delicious meal (especially loved the mussels and the duck), in the gorgeous back yard. Very welcoming and nice people running it. Hope to come back!

The old buildings together with great food and excellent service continues to be one of the most attractive about Mr X. (Strictly speaking this should now be called Mrs X because the Mr has retired and his lovely Liverpool born wife runs the everyday affairs.) The quality and style rarely vary and therefore Mr or Mrs X always delights.

Not the first time myself and my second in command have been here but during our recent vacation in early September we went on three separate occasions. OK, the place is a little out of the way but no doubt the website (www.misterxrestaurant.com) will give sufficient directions. That said, if you are in the Altea region, everyone knows the way...

We had been recommended to go to this restaurant for a few years. Just under a week ago we finally decided to visit Mister X. My husband had the steak tartare (which he described as divine) and I ordered the duck in orange sauce. We ate on a beautiful terrace, full of flowers and a lovely atmosphere. All the staff... More

Visited here 2 days ago with family group of 16! as always the whole evening was a success, excellent food, service and ambience. Also very good value, Mister X never fails as far as we are concerned. If you do not know Altea it can be a little difficult to find so watch out for the signs for Mister X

A hidden gem a cab ride from Albir. Fantastic walled courtyard setting surrounded by beautiful flowers. Menu is very reasonably priced, with A la Carte and fixed price special (15 Euro). All the party thoroughly enjoyed their food choices. Seek it out if you're in the Albir area
