The setting was very romantic, and intimate. We ate tapas, carpaccio and prawns as starters, lamb carre and éntrecot as maincourse and crêpe suzette as dessert. The food was... More

During our recent stay in Costa Blanca we had the opportunity to eat at several restaurants, in particular in Altea. For us, our dinner with friends at La Costera was outstanding. It was a gourmet experience. We loved the well balanced choice of dishes on the chalk board. It was a joy to discuss the sourcing and preparation of the... More

Another visit to La Costera in the Old Town of Altea, and another success. We invited friends to enjoy the food at La Costera, and they agreed that better than this cannot be found in Altea. The set lunch meny gives you sufficient alternatives to find something you desire. And the house wine to follow is of top quality. You... More

Excellent food and service, cozy decor, picturesque setting just far enough from the town center to avoid the most boisterous revelers. I thought the sauce on the venison was a little too concentrated, but liked it nonetheless. I'll definitely return if dining in Altea again.

Having booked a table in advance we were lucky enough to have a beautiful moonlit evening to sit outside. (we had failed to get in a few evenings prior to this as the restaurant was fully booked so booking is a must) The ambience created in this small restaurant is lovely and the staff could not have been more helpful...
