Excellent fine dining.

Great food & fantastic staff. I think this is the place for local non-Spanish residents. We were able to grab a table one night & book on another. The food wouldn't disappoint & it is excellent but there are a couple of other similar restaurants, offering the same standard, that are cheaper & less... read more

As others have said they have a new 'executive chef' - they have tried and sadly failed to make a Caesar salad 'deconstructed' basically it turns into a gritty mush. We came and ate off the beach so a really a well made salad would have been nice. It's a shame but we won't be rushing back.

Have been coming here regularly over the last 5 years and have always loved the buzz and slick service and food. However since my last visit it has had a makeover, with now a more formal restaurant feel than a brasserie. The owner and waiting staff are the same charming and welcoming as ever. The kitchen has moved and though... More

Brel sits in the middle of a very touristy sea side pedestrian boulevard, and used to serve top quality Italian dishes, such as a wood fire pizza, some amazing salads, fresh seafood starters, and excellent Pasta. It was the place to visit when you needed a break from Spanish food, and the food quality was very consistent throughout the years.... More

Great food & fantastic staff. I think this is the place for local non-Spanish residents. We were able to grab a table one night & book on another. The food wouldn't disappoint & it is excellent but there are a couple of other similar restaurants, offering the same standard, that are cheaper & less 'hemmed in'. all inall though, great.

Back then it had paper table cloths and it has little by little moved up market, but it's prices are still good and the staff are very attentive. We go as often as we can and it is getting a much bigger menu and turning into a really good restaurant.

We have been going to this restaurant regularly 2-3 times a year for the past few years they now have a new chef and menu . The signature starter of prawns a la brel is no more to be replaced by a mini burger with vegetable crisps !!! Included in the main courses is now a stodgy rice dish with... More

The food is good, but relatively expensive for the area. Service can be variable when they are very busy.

Nouvelle cuisine restaurant with lots of imagination and fantastic quality. Any of the menu dishes is worth trying. The service is very good and the waiter who attended us, Gustavo, was very helpful, polite and nice. The desserts are fantastic with lots of imagination, I had the Agua de Valencia one (Valencian Water)

We ordered Pizza's and the waiter got one of the Pizza's wrong, perhaps language problema. The wrong Pizza was taken away to rectify, the other 2 pizza's were left and were cold. When the corrct Pizza arrived it was cold, we drowned our sorrows with some good wine, but the experience was not a happy one. We complained but nothing... More
