I don't think Dougie Wougie could possibly have been to the same restaurant. Tapas i Vins is an amazing find. The food is tasty and very imaginative. Yes, it is expensive compared to a lot of other local restaurants (probably Dougie's main gripe), but if you have the selection of six tapas, it is quite reasonable (18 Euros). The fact that it is always packed with local Spanish at lunch and dinner says it all! We have never had a bad meal. Go and try it and see for yourself.

Note: During the day it looks like any other cafe, but at night it transforms itself into a smart restaurant with white tablecloths.

Oh dear. I don´t like writing negative reviews but I just can't recommend this restauarant. Most Spanish restaurants offer variations of the same basic dishes but this restaurant's menu was particularly bland. Service was unspiring too. Maybe it was just a bad day........... (doubt it..)

After living just a few kilometres from La Xara for 10 years (in fairness we are only living in Denia now!) we were amazed to find such a high quality bar/restaurant literally on our former doorstep!
A lot of people (Brits) get put off by the very mention of Tapas but there is evidently Tapes and Tapes and this is approaching fine dining! Not cheap but great food rarely is and this is great food!
Try it!

We have been here twice now, once as a couple & the second time we took 2 friends who also loved it. It is a small restaurant with modern decor & a well air-conditioned interior. As it is situated in the back streets of the village it only has room for a few small tables outside the front which in summer would be very hot so better to stay inside.
The tapas selection is extensive & very unusual & they also do meat & fish dishes if you don't fancy tapas. They have a specials board & an option to choose either meat or fish
tapas which they then bring you a selection of their choice.
Service is friendly & quick. Although they have a wine list you can bring your own wine & they charge a small corkage charge. We can't wait to go back to try some more tapas as We work our way through the menu.
