Called here on the way back from Guadalest seeking a late (very late!) lunch around 1700 hrs so there were only a handful of other people outside having drinks at this time. There are barrel tables outside the entrance which lend a nice atmosphere and taverna has a stunning view of the neighbouring village on the hill and surrounding countryside.

As in CherryAlicante's review below, we had the inclusive €14.95 menu, one with ribs and one with kebabs. Our order came quickly and the young girl who served us was very friendly, As per Cherry's review, the ribs were good and meaty but the kebabs less impressive. As a whole, we found the menu substantial and good value, and there were plenty of options to choose from. Ours was a quick visit this time but we would definitely return when next in the area, especially if someone is playing classical jazz!

We found this restaurant to be very average. Nothing different from many other places around. The food was just 'ok' and service was not the best. Pizza4you next door is much better!

We all had the 14.95€ menu which consists of a sharing platter of chicken, onion bahjees and coleslaw. There is then a choice of ribs, tandoori chicken or kebabs. We all chose the ribs and they were excellent: four meaty, barbecue ribs with sweet corn and chips. Dessert and a drink is included and is very good value. The staff were helpful and attentive despite the fact that they were very busy - our visit coinciding with the end of a concert at the adjoining theatre. We will be back!

We are locals and live in the montana near Benimantell,This is the third time we have been to the Carbon, we enjoy the food, the young man playing classical jazz is excellent, the staff friendly, but this is also the third time we have been over charged and always the same items one large water and two cokes this ammounts to 10 euros a time, its a good job I always check the bill, many do not, So sadly we will not be going back again, we spoke to the head waiter who passed us on to a young girl, who was useless, then we found the owner, who just laughed, its all a con, so beware, Rosa Pakalski,

The Carbon is in La Nucia in the hills above Benidorm. Stunning views from a large terrace. Lunchtime menu for 12.90 euro includes 3 courses, bread and a drink - excellent value and good dishes. We returned one evening for the charcoal grilled lamb chops and steak. Including a jug of Sangria, a flan and coffee it was 36 euro. Very good value. The staff are also very helpful and pleased to see you. Parking is a bit difficult. Go just down the hill and walk back.
