We came across this tapas bar whilst looking for something simple for lunch. We just asked for a coffee and one of their open sandwiches. The waitress brought us a complimentary plate of beautiful ham and tortilla ( very unexpected!) and the sandwich was actually a slice of very crusty country style bread with tomatoes and slices of the most...

We were strolling Elche on a Sunday afternoon, the place looked really nice so we gave it a try. The place is nicely decorated, 5 stars for that! We were a table of 5. Four of us ordered chicken and one ordered a salad. After a great deal of waiting they told us that the have no more chicken (!!!)... More

We were on a Spanish class trip around Elche-and having 3 hours for lunch we visited this wonderful location , recommended by one of our party. It could not have been better- infact it was the highlight of the day! The very reasonably priced Menu del Dia (12.90 euros) was extremely good value for money and the dishes were of... More

It took us a while to find a good quality restaurant, but this is the place to be in Elche, Spain. Friendly staff and great food, not cheap but great value for money, American size meals and delicious tapas!

Maybe it is common sense if you have lived in Spain long enough but... to our surprise, nothing from the menu was available when we went for lunch at noon. Apparently, they start cooking "real food" from 1 pm onward :-) They had several things available though - we tried octopus and olives - they were AWESOME! Very well prepared,... More

A business colleague and I ate there on Wednesday the 13th August. What we didn't realise was that this was the fiesta night so it was really busy and chaotic. Fireworks were being let off in the square and it was a real party atmosphere. Even though they were really busy, service was good and the food really was superb.... More

Three of us enjoyed a fabulous lunch at the La Alacena Del. Flare Tapas bar in the Plaza de las Flores in Elche. The food from the menu of the day was excellent value and was washed down with a very reasonably priced bottle of Rioja. The highlight for us was the welcoming attitude of our server Jose (Pepe) who... More
