“Consistently good.”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We have been to this restaurant several times.The menu is varied and appeals to all tastes.Children are also catered for.The food is always up to a very high standard.The service is excellent.They are now catering for people that want to eat at home but still be able to taste their menu by having frozen take-away meals.They will also deliver if you live in Javea.We are looking forward to our next visit,which will be very soon.Well done!!!

Thank you for a lovely review and also for mentioning our Frozen Ready Meals to eat at home, as each month they are gaining more and more popularity and serve a purpose for so many people, particularly at the moment for customers on holiday that do not eat out every night and do not necessarily want to spend time cooking at home.
We look forward to seeing you on your next visit....

“What's not to like”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Bright modern space. Bright welcome. Modern menu. Tuesday night relatively busy, nice atmosphere. Very interesting menu with many innovative dishes. Wine list sensibly priced. All four of us delighted with our various choices but special mention of cheese soufflé, Moorish lamb and crepes Suzette. All in all a lovely dining out experience.

“Admirable Adios to Javea”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Having thoroughly enjoyed the take-away meals we had, at a very reasonable price,from La
Cocina,we decided to take a punt and give it a whirl for our final meal in Javea.
In gambling terms,"some you win & some you lose."This is a definite winner and for anyone reading this review,take it from me there is no gamble in eating here.
The welcome was warm and friendly,the service calm and efficient and the food delicious and beautifully cooked.A fillet steak and a spicy lamb dish as the mains and crepes suzette and profiteroles filled with ice cream for desert.
And for serious wine lovers,if this is not the best wine list in Javea,then somebody please tell me where it gets better than this!A pleasure to read - an even greater pleasure to drink from it.
Value is getting the balance between quality and price spot on.La Cocina is great value and a
great choice for your first or last meal in Javea.

It is so good to read that you enjoyed our wine list as Cliff puts so much effort into choosing the wines trying to find the best wines from each grape variety.....he also spends time researching comments from Robert Parker and the Spanish Guia Penin to help customers choose a wine that they might not have looked at before. There are so many grape varieties many customers have never heard of so we are pleased that we have made the list easy to follow.......

We are also delighted that you enjoyed our Delicious ready meals to eat at home as we are also pleased with the response these meals are receiving. They are just perfect for people here on holiday who are self catering and do not want the hassle of cooking every night.....thank you for your comments

“Still as good as ever”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

We have not been in Javea for about 15 months. When we do go we invariably make sure we visit this restaurant but did wonder whether, after such a long time, it would be as good. It was superb as usual - menu has a great mix of dishes with British Spanish and in some dishes North African influences and even a moussaka. Many dishes you will not see elsewhere. All great - this time the lamb and the fish. So good reserved a table for a second visit before going back to UK.

We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your meals here during your visit to Javea. The Moussaka and the Moorish Lamb are two very popular dishes as they are so full of flavour.....don't leave it so long before you return to Javea again....

Best wishes

“Best Restaurant in Javea”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Love this restaurant - it's a place that my husband and I just look forward to going to. We had a warm welcome from Laurie when we arrived (we had booked for 8pm). The outside patio area was not open due to the cool weather, but the inside area is very welcoming. My husband had the homemade meditteranean style bread with alioli verde, and I had prawns with Mango & Chilli on a bed of lettuce. Then for the main course, my husband had the pie with steak and red rioja, peppers & celery, with broccoli and potatoes. I had the chicken in Mango and Chilli (quite spicy but very tasty). Same vegetables as my husband. For desserts we had chocolate brownie with cherries in cherry brandy and ice cream. I had Crepe Suzette with cointreau, orange and Brandy - absolutely delicious!! We had a bottle of the rose house wine, and the bill came to 52 euros. Great value. Take a look at my photos - this restaurant is highly recommended - you will not be disappointed!! Try it!!

Thank you for putting up some photos of our dishes, doesn't the beef and rioja pie look lovely....did we make that????
The Beef and Rioja Pie is also available on our ready meals for you to cook at home and is also a best seller in this range as well as in the restaurant. A full menu can be seen on our website..
Best wishes to you
