This place apparently won Spain best tapas award a few years ago and it is easy to see why. The food was stunningly good and the service fantastic. We ate there twice over our weekend it was that good.

I went here for dinner & drinks. The place was very close to my hotel which suited because it was raining cats & dogs that day. Worst weather in 100 years in the area. I was greeted by a friendly waiter & I had a choice of tables, probably due to the weather. My drink & starter arrived promptly &... More

Rude 'boss', very overpriced food, small greasy portions. We had the ham, egg and potato which was actually greasy chips, with raw egg and a bit of ham - a poor mans English breakfast. My partner had steak sandwich, which was child size and I even think then, a child wouldn't be full from it. Would never go back and... More

Went in after a day in Alicante. Ordered 4 small meals and 4 drinks. The steak sandwich could have been finished in 2 bites. The San fernando of egg iberico ham with fried potatoes (chips as it turned out), was a poor mans English breakfast. Coke 3.30 small wine 3.80. Oh and the bread and olive oil we didn't ask... More

We came to this place without any thoughts, just expected that it can be quite expensive. But otherwise, it was full of people, most tourists and the prices were really decent for such a quality. Everything is totally fresh and that's the most important. Great selection of wines, from 16euros for Gewurztraminer up to couple hundreds for something exceptional. We... More

In all the visits I've made to this great city,how could I have overlooked this treat? Thankfully, my wife discovered it when here with a pal,so on opening the door in an unprepossessing location, here was a gourmet paradise! We took full advantage of the tapas on offer,from the best Serrano ham,through kidneys cooked in sherry and the best scrambled... More

Visited here in the recommendation of the local owner of the apartment we are renting. Accommodated on a very busy night even though we did not have reservations. Service was superb and the food was excellent. Will be returning here during our winter stay in Alicante

We ate at this restaurant twice last year when we visited Alicante and were keen to return. The food is so enjoyable and suits us both - my husband is vegetarian and has plenty of choice here. Good food, super wine and a good atmosphere.

Good food, server by nice guys. The premises, however, are cantine-like. If you're not a paella expert, avoid the creamy ones.

Can't fault this place. Service is second to none, staff friendly and the tapas and wine are superb. We have eaten here twice now for lunch and are planning to come back a few more times during our stay here. My husband and I are very keen on fine wines and the wines here were absolutely delicious, even the ones... More
