“A must for foodies!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

Every time We visit Javea, We make a trip to Masena and it's the highlight of the holiday, it has never disappointed.

It's about a ten minute drive outside the port, so you may have to drive or take a taxi, as it's not in walking distance.

The restaurant is beautiful inside and out, it is a lovely setting!

The food is outstanding. Always very fresh, well cooked, presented lovely and the staff are great.

For a meal for my partner and I, two courses with drinks, we paid around 100 euros (including the tip) but if you appreciate good food, it is worth every penny.

The last time we visited I had mussels to start in a ham and cream sauce which is served with bread to mop up the delicious sauce! My partner had a tuna starter which he said was beautiful. We always have the salt baked sea bass to follow which is amazing.

Well worth every penny!

“Best food in Javea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

The restaurant is always crowded which is a testament to the quality of the food which we deem to be the best in the area although not cheap.

The staff are very friendly and try their best to accommodate your wishes. The menu is extensive and interesting but having booked a table on our last night in Javea we were disappointed that they no longer had paella on the menu as we thought that it was consistently the best paella that we had ever tasted. "No problem" said the waitress we can cook you a paella which was the same response when I asked her if they could grill a plain chicken breast with chips for my son.

All the little extras are a nice touch with an appetizer served up before the meal and a sorbet between courses.

It isn't cheap but there are many restaurants in the area that will charge much more for inferior food.

Unfortunately as we visited on 1st November it was too chilly to eat outside as the patio is a lovely place to dine but we'll be back again next summer

“Excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

As others have reported, the fixed price lunch here is exceptional value. Our party met, and our local contacts had booked the best table inside. The multiple choice menu at EUR 17.50 was just amazing. Service first class. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful food and impeccable service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband and I went for an evening meal here whilst staying at our villa in September. We shared a chateaubriand and it was amazing. The attentive service was perfect not too over the top but made you feel really welcome. Will definitely be back when are in Javea next time.

“Wonderful meal to celebrate our Golden Anniversary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We have visited on a number of occasions in previous years and so far we have enjoyed them all. To celebrate this time we shared a Chateaubriand cooked on a hot stone on the table. It was delicious, as was the starters, and the desert. The Rose wine complemented the meal really well. I most especially enjoy the strawberries with mint and balsamic, with blackberry ice cream. A lovely restaurant, with efficient and attentive staff and thoroughly recommended.
