We went directly to the restaurant after a recommendation of the hotel. I was expecting a tapas bar but this was an overpriced restaurant with poor quality. The croquetas were not the traditional ones and i was not impressed with the mix fish dish. Services...More

Londonrafa, si esperaba el típico bar de playa con sangría y comida rápida, desde luego no fue al lugar correcto, puesto que nuestros platos son caseros pero presentados de manera no tradicional y todos ellos elaborados al momento. Londonrafa, if you were expecting the typical...More

I agree with Rijko and plagiarise his review as I was disappointed that this last remnant of the old Altea seafront succumbed. This place was very special and had a huge history just serving mussels and sardines mainly (and beans, with a bucket by your...More

This restaurant is a typically Spanish establishment, which is good to see. The waiter (who was very friendly) took our drinks' order. Unfortunately, although the wine arrived, we needed to ask again, quite some time later, for the water we'd also ordered, initially. The cod...More

We went to watch the fireworks and happened upon this little gem of a restaurant, the food and service were exceptional! and not overly priced either.
