Always pop in for a drink when we are in Althea; as we are staying nearby this time we gave the lunch menu a try and were very impressed; good choice, good value and great food.

Called in for a lunchtime snack and discovered the finest club sandwich I've ever tasted. If I'm ever in Altea again I will certainly go back to try something different. Our party of four all agreed that the quality of food was superb. All the meals I saw being delivered to tables looked delicious and based on the number of... More

Not quite what we were expecting food wise but nonetheless we enjoyed the tapas. Really tasty and well cooked and the service was great. Rather than go for dinner we would probably go for lunch or just for drinks. Nice location as well.

We were recommended to see Altea, but were disappointed so didn;t stay long, but we did walk along the sea front to find this restaurant where we had a drink and a small meal. The tomato soup was delicious. Friendly , helpful staff, clean bright restaurant.
