“Fantastic food, wonderful atmosphere and always a pleasure to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

A fine restaurant with wonderful waiting staff and excellent chefs. We have dined here many times and this occasion was for Sunday lunch when the menu is a-la-carte (rather than the option of menu-del-dia on other days except Tuesdays when it is closed) The lunch started with canapes and bread with dips, chicken and vegetable soup, followed by a lovely sorbet. The main course was Chateaubriand for two. The large piece of fillet was excellent, seared in the kitchen and carved to order at the table, then cooked by yourself on a salt coated hot plate smeared with beef fat at the table. Melt in the mouth meat, finally cooked as you would wish it. Desert was delicious, strawberries/chopped mint and balsamic sauce and blackberry ice cream all washed down with a very nice bottle of Spanish Rose. We will be back!!

“Superb 5 star restaurant, great food, great trained, friendly service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

One of the best restaurants in Javea for food quality, coupoled with excellent surroundings, atmosphere and friendly but well trained service. I cannot rate this place highly enough, ESPECIALLY compared to other "high class" restaurants in the area.

Food is not "cheap eats", but IS superb, and as always, "you get what you pay for".

Have been many times and always look forward to the next visit and meal.

“Outstanding....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Everything was outstanding, The reservation, the welcome, the restaurant (very Spanish), the menus, wine list just for starters. A great place if you have kids as they have a play park if they get bored at the table. Great selection of food, wine and deserts. The meat dishes as good as the Seafood (not always the case with all restaurants). Service was perfect and very friendly and will go at your pace. Obviously the most popular place as it is always busy (need to make a reservation) despite its location. higher end of the price range but worth every penny.

“EXCELLENT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

menu of the day excellent it includes an amuse bouche , sorbet between entrée and main.
choice of several entrées, mains and dessert. Food always good and service is exceptional particularly for Spain.
Price for 3 - 55 to 65 euro. including wine and 10% tip. normal price elsewhere for a menu is less but food ,service and ambiance well worth the extra.
Eaten here many times and it is always consistent, now at Xmas time nice decorations and real log fire.

“Always reliable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Have visited this restaurant several times. Whether a special occasion or just 'a visit' the Restaurant Masena has never let us down. Always a good atmosphere with knowledgeable and friendly staff. The food is beautifully presented and prepared. This restaurant is thoroughly recommended.
