Lovely menu del dia choices with a very good price. They also welcomed our little westie which was very kind. Service was courteous and attentive, the wines great and the restaurant had a lively, family orientated ambience. The food was well presented, tasty and portions...just right. Definitely recommend. The toasted bread was served with a fab olive oil, leek soup creamy and the truffle powder a very nice addition, the pig cheeks were soft and succulent and the salmon and crisp veggies perfectly cooked. Outside seating available but too windy when we visited and not in the sun til 1430/1500hr.More

Great place for a dinner date. The steak was perfectly cooked. There is even a clothing shop in the back, with discounts.

We have eaten many times in Alquimia and each time has been excellent. The food, the quality has that edge on other similar restaurants and the menu is extensive. A plate of the Jamon Iberico was perfect with a glass of wine while we surveyed...the menu for the rest of our meal. ( A lovely bottle of Jose Pariente Vedejo ). Every dish served well and every dish enjoyed. If you like to finish with a sweet - try the Torrija Caramelizada. Highly recommended.More

First time here. My husband and I had the Menu al Dia. Very nice, relaxed but sophisticated decor and good service. The menu al dia was a bit pricey what with one thing and another and the proportions were a little skimpy but overall a...good experience. The regular menu looked very good so we’ll be back.More

We chose Alquimia (alchemy) for our 30th anniversary dinner. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Even the bread came with tiny pipettes and olive oil, so you could drizzle oil onto the delicious bread. Our server was friendly and helpful. He was even happy...to take a couple of photos for us -- and they were good. The queso de cabra salad was gorgeous and tasty (we dug into it before I realized I wanted a photo, so the included photo shows a slightly mangled salad). My medium rare tuna was tender and perfectly cooked and the vegetables had a nice toasted taste. Eric's Jamón ibérico was extremely tender and delicious -- the best either of us has ever had. His potatoes were tender and flavorful. We will definitely go back.More

Modern, clean, welcoming, good staff, good short menu with a fine range of Spanish dishes, served with care. The dishes are meticulous and quite refined takes on traditional tapas and rice based cuisine. The meat and fish were both cooked well (and the tartares not...at all!)More

While having a short beach holiday, I wanted to visit Gandia centrum for a few hours with my family. We came across Alquimia restraurant at "lunch" time here (around 3 o'clock) and the place appealed us all, so we decided to give it a try....Our lunch was simply perfect with a Michelin-esque atmosphere, service, quality, and a McDonald's-esque check to pay in the end. Two days later, we went to Gandia again just to have lunch at Alquimia. I though that the menu would stay the same, but there were new items in the menu, at least as delicious as the ones they replaced. When I doubted which wine to order (just a glass!), they even gave me a tasting of the ones I was interested in. Both times we ended up paying less than 50 Euros for the three of us! Simply an amazing place. I could not recommend more.More

This is a new(Ish) restaurant in the centre of Gandia and well worth a visit. This is our third visit. Staff are welcoming, the decor is modern, open and bright and the food is interesting and excellent quality. We chose the €12:50 set lunch which...included bread, savoury’s and a drink, both had soups which were very good and filling & roast duck for main course (not great in the veg. stakes). The chocolate plate desert was similar but much better than we had had in a Michelin star restaurant recently ! true. Coffee was really nice. Great value for money and excellent service. The boss stopped us as we left to ask if we enjoyed our visit, and was very keen to understand both the good and the average...not much of that. Other local restaurants would have to be very good for us not to visit on a regular basis.More

FirstlyI have to say that this is Gorgeous place! Interior is simple and in the same time very tasteful.. Secondly, waiters in here are super polite which is quite important for a restaurant. Gives that special feeling. Thirdly and most importantly- the food!!! Wow!!! They...are very quick and they are full of surprises! My partner and I had hummus, shrimp surprise and cod for starters and for main ravioli and steak.... absolutely gorgeous!!!!! Im chef myself and the food what was cooked here is definitely worth having!! Anyone visiting Gandia don't hesitate and try this place out.More
