We spend the 30th December evening here with a group of friends, over 20 people. No other restaurant would accept a reservation for a large group one day before the festivities of New Year's eve. We were not disappointed.
The location is great, a small marina. Follow the signs on the main road to find it.

We had a variety of Spanish tapas and a great Indian dish to follow.

I made a return visit to this lovely Restaurant after 4 years and I am pleased to say that the view is still amazing and the food is of a higher standard than most in the area.
Non locals may not stumble upon it easily, but if you follow the road from Calpe to Moraira you will see a sign for Las Antipodas Windsurfing and Kayak centre ~ go down the rather steep road and you will find yourself in a wonderful place. There is a casual beach bar type restaurant downstairs and Timon is up the stairs. Great decor, the best view of Calpe and the Penon d'Ifach. The staff and Sidu (the owner) will give a warm greeting, a wide selection of international cuisine including Spanish and Indian. There is an excellent choice of wines available.
Not the cheapest but worth that little extra.

Reading the latest review I was on two minds as to whether to dine here. But it was close to our villa and getting late.
The restaurant itself is pleasant and the views are extremely nice. The service is average at best with no one speaking English (not a big deal as we are in Spain)
As it was just my wife and I dining, and her only having a salad as a main it was pretty painless but we are the sort of people who like to snoop on what’s going on around us. There were 3 tables on larger parties, two with 6 people and one with 9. What we noticed is that none of their main came out at the same time, and all were complaining. Some having to wait almost 45 minutes between the first and last main coming out. I just don’t think they know how to cope. So be cautious.
Our food itself was fine, cooked well and my steak for main was the size of a baby’s head.

Although the restaurant is beautiful inside it is definitely the outside dining that is special.
The views are of the ocean overlooking a sailing school.
I have always found the service excellent and the food very good.
Worth a visit for sure.

Having read other reviews my family was really looking forward to this restaurant and made sure that we reserved a table to ensure that we experienced what other diners have raved about. However, the service was very poor. The restaurant was barely a quarter full however we waited over 70 minutes for our main courses. The veg was undercooked and the food was no better than average. We were very disappointed as the food is quite pricey compared to other quality restaurants in Calpe. Not recommended - when we complained about the slow service only one waiter appeared apologetic and the others were indifferent to our concerns. A wasted evening when there are so many other restaurants to choose from.
