“It must be friends of the house who have voted...”

Authentic place far from la rambla. Had lunch with a selection of tapas. Every thing was pretty much ok but not really good. When I asked for postre I got some pine apple without being presented for a menu card or some verbal options. The is far better places in central Alicante...

“BEST TAPAS EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We recently overnighted in Alicante and found this wonderful restaurant & tapas bar through the recommendations left on Trip Advisor.

It was away from the main tourist area in the Old Town but an easy walk from our hotel near the town hall.

The bar and restaurant areas are packed out with wonderful photos, pictures and artefacts. Typical spanish music was playing loudly throughout the evening. Lots of locals popping in and out for one or two drinks and a bit of tapas too.


The owners speak no English but we managed to understand each other. We ordered tapas for starters followed by a fish dish for me and chicken for my partner. We had no idea what would arrive but very soon plate after plate of delicious food started to come. We were about to say no more when our main courses arrived, both of which were delicious so we couldn't leave any although we were both very full!

We have been spending up to six months each year in Spain for the past ten years and this really was the best tapas we have ever had. We are almost loathe to recommend the place as we don't want to many people to find it!

Our bill for the evening which included drinks before our meal, one and a half bottles of wine and two brandies came to €75 and it was worth every cent.

“Perfectly balanced food with high quality ingredients.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Few choices, but what you get is just right. Both the paella and the meat was perfectly balanced - not to much salt but still with lots flavour. The paella came with freshly home made alioli. The meat came with grilled aubergines. Basic and simple but high quality. The in-door ambience was a little bit closed, no windows, but somehow comforting after a day in the sun, and not noisy.

“If I had only one meal to eat in Alicante it would be here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Simply the best food in Alicante. Search this place out, midway up some steps in the old town is this wonderful Taberna.
Discovered by chance 4 years on a weekend trip, our host Ramon & his wife produced the most wonderful array of tapas, we left everything to them and we were delighted, we had great fun with the language barrier working out what we were eating, and some hours later the 5 of us toddled off well feed and watered! Great fun.
Returning in late October this year for a short break, my wife and I ate in several restaurants, La Taberna Iberica came out tops again.
If you're not that hungry opt for the tapas selection, if after that you're still peckish....have a couple more. A great experience, Ramon and his wife are clearly foodies and enthusiastic about what they do. Let them take charge, sit back and enjoy the authentic Spanish gastronomic experience. We'll be making a beeline when we next return, I only hope that enough people have the courage to get themselves away from the typical tourist eateries and support genuine deserving places like this to keep them going in the clearly hard times that the Spanish economy is going through.
You won't be disappointed.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

They accommodated us literally (great surroundings and atmosphere) and metaphorically (made the paella without fish as I don't like it), gave us lots of little surprises and seemed to appreciate my GCSE Spanish efforts! Definitely worth the slight climb to find this place - will rush back when we're next in Alicante :)
