A wonderful and reasonable menu, 2 courses for 15 Euros. A great selection and mostly gluten free, with a very good wine menu. The waiting staff were so lovely too. A lovely restaurant to visit when in Javea.

My partner had the beef Rioja pie, which is served deep dish with a wonderful pastry topping. 15 euros for two courses. The service is friendly and welcoming. This is food value... More

We were here in July as part of a wedding party. The food was amazing particularly the lamb. The service and attention to detail was first class. We would have loved to go back again to sample the lunch menu but we were only in Javea a short while. Would agree with other reviewers that the food and atmosphere makes... More

Majority of food is gluten free and all ingredients are listed. Have been going there for past couple of years in spring and summer and it's... More

I went to La Cocina with my two teenaged kids and my in laws so a tough crowd to please. We were given a nice table outside and had a very reasonable bottle of house red. Everyone had different starters and main courses from the menu which contained a real variety of items. The food was excellent and everyone really... More

I was lucky enough to eat here twice in one week. Great minds think alike I guess. The first visit was at lunch for Tapas and included the obligatory patatas bravas and cooked meats. While the patatas bravas were great, the mussels and cockles were truly special: very light and tasty; four servings taken! More fish were served cured in... More

Two course set menu for 15 euros and u can also add a sweet for around another 5 euros. Best food we have probably ever had. Great choices I had the pork in cider and apple sauce which just melted in the mouth and was absolutely delicious, husband had the beef dish which was succulent. Every thing was freaky prepared...

Have visited this restaurant in the past and it has always been excellent. Have recently visited Javea and back to la Cocina. The food is great and such good value considering the excellent quality. The staff are welcoming and nothing is to much trouble. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
