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...

The food here is delicious and the staff were lovely. My husband and I both had the specials, I had fish and my husband had roast lamb, both were perfect. Well worth the money. We will be returning next time we go to Altea.

What a great restaurant. The minute you walk in you are made to feel very special by the lovely, lovely wife of the chef. We hadn't booked but were told that as long as we were not in a hurry then we could have a table, she stressed that she wanted us to take our time and enjoy our meals.... More

Second time this year at La Costera. The hospitality here is how you want it: personal, attentive but never too much. The terrace is great in the summer, especially the tables under the arched trees; very romantic. We took the menu with various appetizers, dorada and entrecote and deserts to choose-very good quality indeed. They remembered it was our anniversary... More

a Costera confirms that it is on top. This Sunday afternoon we were treated to a wonderful lunch. We chose the day's menu for four people, including wine, and we can only praise for both food, drink and service. We will certainly be back soon.

Excellent small restaurant in the lovely town of Altea. To get there you need to climb a long steep street, with stairs. Cars or taxi can not come there. But the effort is worth of it. The food is very good, luxery and the service great. Warm welcome indeed. Good house wine too. The price is not the lowest you... More

This is a favourite of mine. Whether you have a table on the lovely terrace outside or inside the food and the attention to detail is excellent. The staff are friendly and very attentive and when we ask them to give us a little more time between courses it is never a problem. We have had a party of eight... More

This French run restaurante is, arguably, the very best place in town. And, yes, I have tried 'em all! Taking all relevant factors into consideration, ie service, taste, presentation etc. I can make the above statement with impunity! A little hard to find unless you have explicit institutions, La Costera's location actually adds to the overall experience. A truly exception... More
