We have tried to keep the original spirit that was present in these facilities , back in the 50s , preserving in its main hall , the wooden top of the walls ( having been subtly restored to keep the look of yesteryear) and harboring furniture from of a former casino at Marbella around the 40s .In this room you will find framed fabrics from top designers such as Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren and Christian Lacroix fabrics , as well as exact replicas of the sixteenth century French tulips ceilings.The walls have been painted by the artist Ignacio Soriano , who christened " Afternoon" , bringing a touch of peace and color on site.The music varies depending on the time of day you choose to visit and is an acoustic extension of the styling of premises. Foment cuisine Café & Bar - Gin club is run by the prestigious Chef Enrique Madrigal, awarded with several prizes gastronomic nature . In our menu you will find local and international dishes at affordable prices, in order to satisfy all audiences .The room staff , led by Jaime Jara and Salvador Piris , include a young team constantly training towards offering our customers the best service, and this is one of the fundamental aspects that stands Foment Café & bar - Gin Club.

Really nice cafe/bar in Gandia. Great space, stylish and comfortable atmosphere with helpful staff. The best deserts in town - definitely worth a visit.

“Friendly and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We spent a lovely couple of hours at Foment, drank some lovely G&T and ate some good food. The bar is fairly newly opened and the owner, who we met, is working hard to make this place a succuss -we will go back!

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went here our second day in Gandia. The street side tables offered good view on a busy Saturday. Has hummus and potatoes with bacon and cheese for appitizers, the potoes were a huge serving! I had the fish and chips and it was ok and she had the grilled octopus and it was pretty good. The prices were reasonable and the service was fine.

“An unlucky night ? ( Sat 22nd Feb )”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

A group of 4 set out to try Foment Gin Club, Gandia - we thought just for a drink - but we decided why not try the food. Which have to say was very nice - but the service was appalling ( not helped by a power cut later in the evening when we tried to pay ). Will try it again because overall it seemed a nice place - but with their tag line of " Foment - where else ? " they need to work on the service on busy nights because there are plenty of nice places in and around Gandia. Our food order was messed up, a course missing, delays with drinks. I think we may just have hit a bad night ? as other reviews are glowing.

“Top spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We are regular customers at this cafe/bar. Some establishments obtain high standards, but few are able to maintain them. However, Foment has consistently achieved high standards in both food and service. The reasonably priced menu has a wide selection of dishes, well cooked and good ingredients, a great house wine and several decent beers, including Guinness. An interesting 'menu del dia' is also available. Pleasant bistro-style surroundings promote the warm and amiable environment. The staff and owner are friendly and always eager to please. Our 'top spot' in Gandia and not to be missed.
