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

We visited the restaurant twice in late October. The food is wonderful, beautifully presented, sensibly priced, and the service is excellent. Located in the Old Town, a few minutes walk from the church with the blue dome. Worth booking ahead for a weekend or in high season. There is a great terrace as well.

Honestly I would rate it as a 4.2. We had a really nice time eating at this restaurant. You can tell that there is passion at La Costera. Passion for delivering quality food and wine. We tried a few starters all excellent except the carpaccio which was drenched in truffle oil which way overpowered the subtle flavors of the otherwise... More

If your wondering where to go out for a romantic dinner in Altea, then this venue is a must visit. Its hidden away in the back streets of Altea's Casco Antiguo, away from the crowds and not too far walking distance from the Plaza de la Iglesia. The interior as well as its courtyard are spacious with a real intimate... More

We dinned there twice on our holidays there in August and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience on both occasions. The restaurant is an absolute treasure and a lucky find for us as we wandered up through the maze of little cobbled streets. It was lovely to get away from the hustle and bustle of the church square higher up (and... More

We were lucky to get at table as you usually need to book ahead. Only bad point was the house wine which did not taste very good but... More
