We went for dinner with a group of four. We we're planning to have the menu del noche, but since it was a holiday (Labor day), they only served a la carte, which actually turned out for the better! We had different tapas as starters and enjoyed every bit of them. Especially the Iberico Secreta was heaven. So full of taste, you almost won't believe it until you try it. As main courses, we had the rack of lamb, sole, entrecote and steak. Which were all cooked until perfection. We were very curious about the desserts, since we've hadn't had the best experiences with postres in Jàvea (except for La Renda, they have tasty desserts as well). Oh my, they were above every expectation! We ordered the cheesecake, hot chocolate cake (runny on the inside, just the way it should be) and the pannacotta and we didn't regret it. So tasteful, sweet and just the right sized portions. If you fancy having a great evening with GOOD food and service, you should definitely go to Embruix in the beautiful old town. We'll be back for sure!

I love spanish food and with so much to offer in Xabia it's hard to recommend anywhere more than somewhere else, but we came here in a large party of 10 and were really looked after. The waitresses were lovely and my dad had the best lamb he's ever had here. Highly recommended.

Initial impressions were really good, the food was nice but it was all let down by the amount of time it took for drinks to arrive after being ordered. We were not in a hurry but waiting 20 minutes just for drinks to arrive is a bit of a joke, even after making the waitress aware of our continued wait a couple of times.

We'll return, but service needs to be better.

We visited this restaurant for the first time a few days ago and, have nothing but praise for the food & service. To sit outside under fairy lights in the old town was delightful. The tapas was delivered promptly, all freshly cooked & delicious. We found the waitress very helpful and friendly. We will certainly dine there again when we visit Javea next year.

Four adults and 1 child, we ordered 11 tapas and every dish was covered with sea salt and I mean covered with salt. Ruined our whole experience of the old town!
