La Cocina is small but elegant, with very friendly owner-service, and an interesting menu. Their food is delicious, notably the pate and the Moroccan lamb dish.

We ate at La Cocina this evening whilst visiting family in Javea. The meal was delicious and exceptional value for 15 euros. The menu was varied, with each of us choosing different meals. I tasted them all and they were great. The owners, their family (who work in the business) and staff were attentive, professional and friendly. The restaurant was... More

The restaurant is slightly off the major pedestrian areas but still an easy walk from the port or old town (and there is plenary of street parking nearby). We went after reading the other TripAdvisor reviews and were very glad we did. Service was very good and the food excellent - especially the lamb dish. I will definitely go back... More

La Cocina is now open for lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday weekly. There is always an excellent menu available, but for me as a solo a huge advantage is that you can buy the main dish, excluding vegetables, which are available separately, ready frozen for 5€ or 6€ each. Whether eating there with friends or at home solo, I... More

We visited on Friday night after ten long months of waiting to taste the pate and steak once more. We were not disappointed, it was as fantastic as it was before. I love this restaurant. I live the decor and the ambience, it really is a fantastic setting for fantastic food.

Thanks to Laurie for making our two visits last week so great. Her service is friendly and warm and the chef knows what he is doing. We could not fault one dish we had and all were cooked to perfection. While the menu is not extensive there is something for everyone and their palate is very good. Please try La... More
