“used to to good but sadly now atrocious”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2011

We have been visiting Javea for over 15 years and Posit used to be a good restaurant serving quality food in a fantastic location with panoramic views of the sea. However, we visited the restaurant again this year and sadly the restaurant has taken a serious turn for the worse! The food was abysmal. I don't know whether the chef or management or both have changed but the quality of the food was shocking. In fact we sent our courses back and eventually left the restaurant to go elsewhere. It's such a shame that a previously good restaurant is now one to completely avoid. No wonder the tables were empty this summer.

“Such a Shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

This restaurant used to be excellent. The staff of mostly South American ladies were professional and charming, well deserving of a good tip. The chef was a true cook - shy and unassuming but seriously into his food.

Alas those days are gone. The mostly male staff stand around talking to eachother. It is obvious they have never worked in a good restaurant. The owners sit talking to the staff, never to appear or check how things are going at the tables. Meanwhile we pour our own wine, get the correct knife, get some salt etc. Such a disappointment.

This restaurant has perhaps the best situation in the port area of Javea, in past years it was successful and deservedly so. I doubt it will survive.

There was a lovely French family opposite us, animated and happy. I noticed their irritation increase and their facial expressions change as they waited and waited for their first course - with no intervening service or acknowledgement. Nobody to pour your wine or your water... perhaps that is not so very important but perhaps it could have made them feel looked after while their meal was taking a little longer than it should have?

Such a shame.
