Good food and nice male staff.

The food was good and the male staff very friendly. The female (probably the managers or something?) staff members was not very friendly, loosing a bit on the rating just because of that. Decent prices.

The menus are too extensive - which meant our main choices of Rack of Lamb and SeaBass were not available. And this was early on a Friday evening. Other than that - you just have to go with whatever else is available if your choice is not 'on' we had a great time. Well worth a visit.

Despite the bewilderingly enormous list of specials and menu items the food was very good indeed. Ambience was perfect and the staff were really lovely. You have to book unless you want to eat at an odd time and get lucky to find a table - location and the reputation means it is always busy. Worth booking and sitting outside... More

The place was boiling - no air con - we had a fan which a Spanish couple turned around to point only on them. How rude ! Any way we asked the waiter if there was anything he could do - ie get another fan that wasn't being used - female manager drags & bangs a table plonks a fan... More

We loved Osteau but not any longer. Average food you can get anywhere in Altea. 8 persons, no service, serving wrong food not once but twice. We know altea very well so this is not good. Sorry.

The food is pretty good but since we used to go here pretty frequently it gets a bit boring because the menu doesn't change. Not really exciting for repeat customers. I usually order the duck with strawberry sauce but the last time I had it it was a bit over done and somewhat tough. Haven't been back since then. However,... More

We dined at this restaurant for the first time after being recommended by a friend. The setting was lovely, the table was located in a perfect position with lovely views of the church. However, the service and food did not live up to expectation. We were unhappy with the waiters hovering in the background and removing plates whilst others in... More

A nice dinner, really good staff and tasty food but I have heard the comments from the owner next to me and it was ridiculous. Speaking bad about the country that is feeding his family and about the guest. Many people in spain are looking for their future working hard and he is arguing all the time about stupid things...

Family gathering of 8 including young children. Staff could not have been more helpful and friendly (including accommodating a severe egg and nut allergy). Food was really good, as was the local wine. Would highly recommend to anyone.
