Went for dinner following great reviews. Enjoyed every minute of it, spent 4 (!) hours there without even realizing. Fixed menu was our choice - plenty of options and all top quality! Really cosy and romantic tables for 2. Staff speak perfect English, French and German. A must go while on Costa Blanca, definitely worth a drive. Well done guys,... More
