We visited the restaurant on our penultimate night in Alicante. The front of house hostess was able to accommodate us despite not making a prior booking and we were promptly given a table upstairs. The atmosphere was lively and we were served by Joel who came up with some excellent recommendations based on our requirements (accompanied by a young child;... More

This restaurant was a little hard to find at first bc it's one block in from main strip but the wine, the tapas were all exquisite and the service was great too! We got there early and luckily we did bc it got really crowded after 9pm

Ate at the restaurant one of our first nights here in Alicante. The tuna and Salomon was outstanding, my boyfriend ate the entrecote and he was very happy with his choice too. Go there when in Alicant!

Thank you to the staff who suggested a vegetable paella on chicken broth. Nice that it is possible to order paella for one person only. The asparagus and the tuna tartare were great. Everything I had there on many occasions was delicious. The staff is sometimes a little harsh.

My (Spanish) partner has been going to this restaurant for the last 19 years, and knows the place and the staff very well. We decided to take a visiting friend here for her last meal of her short holiday, and it was a very good decision. We reserved a table for 8pm, so that we'd be able to give them... More

Don't get me wrong the food here is good but it's the little things that let this place down. They seemed very rushed to get us out of there. There wasn't enough time to sneeze between starter and main meals. The starters came out in dribs and drabs with one of our family not receiving theirs till we had almost... More

Every visit to Alicante, I go to dinner in La Taberna del Gourmet with all my family - it's our little tradition. The restaurant meets all requirements: quality of service, serving dishes, wine list, quality and taste of the food - all this has remained unchanged for some years that we visit this restaurant.

The menu of the tapas bar is very exciting and we looked forward to an excellent meal. However where we were sat lacked any real ambiance at a table at the back of the restaurant with inadequate lighting and no view of other diners, or the activities going on in the main part of the restaurant. We started with an... More
