“Fine food, lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Al Gusto is a lovely compact restaurant in Denia, Alicante. The food is always first class. The owner and chef Phil has a lunch-time menu and a separate evening menu. Both are great value.
There is a wide choice of fish and meat dishes, including the specialitiy steak on the stone. This is very popular with customers who are given a sizzling piece of steak on a stone to cook at their table. Last time I had a delicious onion soup following by braised pork cheeks which were so tender and full of flavour. Desserts are home-made and simply delicious.
The lunch-time menu is also great value while the Sunday lunches are superb.

“Very good experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Stumbled across the restaurant although we had been looking for it! In centre of Denia, a short walk from the Campo.

Small restaurant. Very well laid out inside. Short but wide ranging menu choices (which we prefer).

Set menus - two or three courses, Did not try starters but they looked very good. House red excellent. I had the beef curry and my wife had the pork cheeks - both very good indeed.

Very friendly staff and good value for two -approx €40 for two courses with coffee. Only slightly more for three courses.

Lunch menu looks excellent value for €11.

A real change from other nearby restaurants. Will go again next week with friends.

“Still the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Three visits this year including one of the excellent music nights. Excellent food, good service and friendly welcome. Happily working our way through the set menu and enjoying every bit of it. Give this restaurant a try and you will be glad you did.
