This place provides some of the best dishes that Alicante can offer, however the prices are more fitting for London than that of a Spanish city.

If you are looking to eat gourmet tapas, try this! It's really delicious and far from average! Especially the tuna tatar, sardines and the special Iberian ham, we highly recommend. Perfect tapas to very low prices! We'll be back!

Went here after reading some good reviews. Upon arrival we entered the restaurant which looked nice and crowded. However, we left the restaurant, walked along the street for 20m and entered another part of the restaurant. This part contained only tourists, was badly designed and extremely cold (19 degrees airconditioning?). We had no idea why we were placed here and... More

Booked table, had recommended tapas selection. Courses arrived thick and fast, out of the door within the hour. Overheard waiters at nearby tables pressuring diners to order everything at start. Churn factory and contrary to spirit of tapas ie. relaxed small portion food served with drinks (plural). Can't fault food, just everything else. Not been back. For similar class, quality... More

Delicious tapas, friendly service. Highly recommended. We went on a Saturday night, we were glad that we booked our table before going there, there was a long queue as the place is deservedly quite popular. My favourite was the mini steak sandwiches, the steak just melts in your mouth. The seafood was also amazing!

Visited for Saturday lunch, and we all were impressed by the quality of the ingredients, cooking and careful attention to detail given to each dish. From the start, for example, the bread platter was excellent - varied, with two different olive oils, and accompanied by very good (and again, varied) olives. A seafood paella was wonderful - with a real... More

Dined here last night on a recommendation from friends. Main restaurant fully booked but we were offered a table in an an adjacent room which looked like a new addition. Nice atmosphere and decor with good A/C. Service was excellent throughout, attentive friendly waiters. We were given a platter with Breads, olives, almonds and 2 different olive oils, all excellent.... More
