La Parilla De Cellar is located in the centre of the Old Town in Javea opposite ancient San Bartolome. If you are driving I'd recommend using the big underground car park in the centre - it's only a 3 minute walk from there. A typically modest sized restaurant in the Old Town, its theme reflects a time gone by with walls covered with pictures of the town and implements once used in farming the land. It's one of those restaurants you could walk by and think shall we/shant we, but you most definitely should. The owner Pepe is incredibly welcoming and has an enjoyable quirky sense of humour and speaks perfect English and he certainly makes your visit more interesting. We had lunch there and started with an excellent garlic bread brushed with garlic butter and toasted on the griddle. We then shared a mixed grill with a fab slection of meats again all cooked on the grill as were the mediteranean vegtables that came with it. We finished with a beautiful lemon sorbet which is a cross between ice cream and sorbet but hugely refreshing after a meat feast. Portion sizes are generous. There is a popular set menu, which provides a chance to try a wide range of different meats served on hot plates having been freshly cooked on a griddle behind the bar. At 20 euros per head which includes drinks and dessert is really great value in a comfortable, friendly setting. Dont miss it if you fancy a change from the Arenal or the Port.

After wandering around the Old Town for a while we decided to give La Parilla a go and we were very pleased we did! . A most charming host and hostess and the most perfectly cooked meat . Deserts were lovingly made by the husband and wife team . We hope to return

In a good location opposite the old church. It had been recommended to us and yet we walked passed it twice, as it looked closed, & the tables werent set up - in fact neighbouring restaurant looked much more appealing and was full and De Cellar was empty, but we decided to give it a chance. The menus didn't describe much - simply 'chicken' or 'kebab' and some items like baked potato €1 each, left us a bit worried. But then the wine arrived - and it was excellent. Followed by the food - fantastic, a genuine tapas bar. Extra 'kebabs' were ordered all round! Along with lamb chops, mixed veg & garlic bread. Chocolate tart & apple icecreams were also winners. And to top it all it was the best value meal we'd had in our 3 weeks. This would be a restaurant I'd be happy to recommend.

La Parrilla De Cellar is our bench mark for restaurants in Javea, as well as in general. The menu for 20€ is unbeatable.It is a pure meat feast. The wine is also quality. I have been going here for the last 10 years and cannot find a better fillet steak.

Well worth seeking out. The menu where you pay €20 and he just keeps bringing food and wine is superb.
