“Great Value Superb Tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Unfortunately Stumbled upon this gem on last night of holiday. Whilst wandering around we were attracted initially by how busy it looked (always a good sign) and once stepping inside received an extremely warm welcome by the management team who spoke various languages.
The Restaurant is deceptive as it appears small from the front but opens out at the back and there are tables outside.
Simply decorated with an extensive tapas menu. All dishes are reasonably priced as are the drinks
The steady flow of diners (many of whom appeared to be expats both German and English living in the area) showed that the reputation of Restaurant has already been established
Each dish was delicious and this will be the first eatery we will visit upon our return to Calpe

“Excellent : Must try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We have been to many tapas bars all over Calpe and Spain and this is by far the best, Very welcoming and the quality of food is excellent . The must try is the goats cheese with Iberico ham and the black pudding with chirizo .The house red wine ( local Alicante ) at €1.50 is a perfect accompliment the white was also very good .
4 tapas dishes more than enough bread and 4 glasses of wine for €16?........ Absolute bargain

“Delicious! Great Value For Money. A MUST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

We visited Calpe a few years ago and this year having come to the area again we said we'd stop in Calpe for the day to relax by the beach. In the evening time we decided to let Trip Advisor tell us where was good to go to eat. La Picaeta was the nearest and sounded great by the reviews. We were not disappointed one bit. The staff were lovely. The food delicious and great value for money. There is a lovely atmosphere to the restaurant and a number of locals seem to enjoy eating here too so that surely is a good sign.
