Went here because of tripadvisor and although our waiter was a bit Dr Jekyl and Mr Hide and with weird humor, the food and stay was really nice.

What a lovely restaurant! Gluten free conscious and a great ambiance next to the wine cellar. We went here twice during our short visit in Alicante, and enjoyed tapas of cured meat and seafood. The olive oil to be pipetted on to the bread and tomatoes was an experience in itself, and the olives were so delicate and tasty. With... More

Arriving without reserving we were really lucky to be accommodated. Despite the place being full in the main area, they took us to another area of the restaurant where a foreign couple sat, otherwise the area was empty but not for long, within 30 minutes the place was packed with Spanish people and I must add many handsome men having...

This restaurant just off the port road was such a nice surprise. Welcoming staff, tasteful decor, good food, and all at a reasonable price. We will definitely return there on our next visit to Alicante.

Visited 3 times during our recent break in Alicante in February (as well as once in November last year) and found not even the slightest fault with the food, wine or service. The tapas are amongst the best we've had, and that includes those sampled during a lengthy gastronomic tour of San Sebastian last year! The ambience and friendly welcome... More

Higher end sophisticated approach to traditional tapas. You could tell the ingredients were carefully selected and good old tapas you ate at regular bars were painstakingly prepared to please both the eyes and the palette.

Fresh and very tasty food, always really busy but service can be slow. Also beware when booking ask for main restaurant otherwise may end up in room next door!

One of my favourite places in Alicante. It is very popular with the locals due to its local cuisine. Fantastic combos with ham, salads, fish and tender ox meat. Great wine e.g. Muga and Albarinhos at affordable prices.

The food is fresh, well presented, tasty, varied, excellent is the word. We went for an evening meal, I recommend booking, as it's always very busy. And the end of the meal we asked them to prepare a 'special gin and tonic' as I was told by someone else, and it was fantastic. The price is right for the quality.... More
