“100% Perfect for us in every way!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2010

Having just returned from a four week long stay in Altea Hills and mainly eating in Calpe each evening I have to say that Amigos was the best restaurant we ate at during our stay. We actually ate here four times during the stay and we only ate at one other restaurant twice - this is a good basic indicator of what we thought of Amigos!

Ursina and Walter make a great team. Walter is an exceptional cook and Ursina is the perfect welcoming face of the restaurant.

We sat outside each time we visited - its located just off from one of the busier roads but still gives a good feeling of whats going on around in Calpe during the evening. Theres around six tables outside and more inside.

We tried the Menu of the day once - exceptional value indeed but our favourite meals were the fillet steaks! Ive eaten in a fair few good restaurants over the years and the steaks here - specifically the quality of the product, the way its cooked and the quality/taste of the sauces rate among the very best. The accompanying veg was fresh and brilliantly cooked too - not soggy or frozen in origin! My partner also loved the chilli spaghetti dish and our four year old daughter absolutely loved the homemade chicken goujons (as did I!)

Trying to remain balanced in my review Id say that the childrens menu is very limited (from memory there is just sausages and chips or goujons and chips) but then having said that, Im sure they would russle up a smaller portion of anything else on the menu for the little'uns.

We hope to return to Altea next year and Amigos is at the top of our 'to revisit' list. :-)

To Ursina and Walter - many thanks for making our holiday even more special - Lauren also says thank you for the lollipops - even when we were just passing by!!

“Very welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2010

We ate here twice while in Calpe for 9 days, Walter & Ursi are so welcoming and made a real effect for the kids to be part of the table. I think the Menu del dia is the best value around & quality! and the fillet steak is the best we've tasted yet! Will be back next year for sure!

“Quality is something different”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2010

The major problem generated by this kind of appreciation is that it gives a wrong opinion about the restaurant. One must compare, the quality of food, decoration, class, and finally one can be satisfactory with a hamburger and will say it was a great place but if you really want to compare with top quality restaurant, this is completely wrong. This restaurant is good for a meal, not for a nice evening out diner. This must be mentioned. I know only 2 restaurant with this kind of level in Calpe and this is not one of them

“It was OK!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2010

Went here on a sunday and had an ok meal, the restaurant was quite small and dingy and they did not even turn the lights on, the service was very good, the food was ok for the money but would of rather paid more than 9 euros for a better quality of food. Dont go if your expecting a no. 1 restaurant.
