The quality is slowly changing

After being in this beautiful restaurant for many times we noticed that quality of the food is still very good. However when you have had a meal in this restaurant 1 or 2 years ago you unfortunately will find that the quality is beginning to drop

I booked here for New Year's eve last year, several months in advance as I had heard good things. At no point did the manager tell me at would be a fixed price set menu and this was not advertised on their website. On arrival we realised this was the deal but went along with it (quite a common thing).... More

We were a group of 5, very excited to try this restaurant for New Year's Eve after having some fantastic meals elsewhere in Altea. How we regretted booking here! Without telling us at any point during booking, or mentioning the price, we were served a set menu for €120 per person. Fair enough - it's New Year's Eve, and for... More

This used to be one of our top restaurants in Altea but feel that it has not improved with time. On our last visit we were served Quiche that think had been reheated in a microwave oven and had a soggy bottom. not what you expect from a top restaurant. We dont like being served rolls (not ordered) on arrival... More

Friendly welcome, charming service, excellent food - especially the perfectly cooked rare fillet steak - and a delightful ambience. Next time we'll leave the car behind and walk so that we can sample the wine list! Definitely will return on ou next visi to Altea.

I really don't know how businesses like like survive if they don´t have staff available to take bookings at the advertised opening times. We tried for for days without success. They obviously are so brilliant that they don´t need any more trade. I will thus stick to the gems I know where the service also reflects the quality of the... More

It is some time since we visited this place, and we regret that. Welcome with a smile, good service and good food. And the prices were acceptable. We have to recommend the place.

Decent food masquerading as haute cuisine which it definitely isn't. Overpriced but beautiful surroundings. Ideal for those who want to see and be seen
