“Best Tapas in Altea's Old Town”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

It's amazing how one small restaurant can create such a WOW factor, but Xef Pirata does it effortlessly. From the tapas to the presentation to the service, every detail is well thought out and executed. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is charming and the tapas are outstanding. The overall experience is truly one-of-a-kind!

“Foie gras with port and strawberries - a heavenly combination!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This unusual tapas style gastro bar is well located near the church towards the top of the hill. The staff spoke very good english and the service was excellent with the food arriving at timely intervals. The wine recommended by our waiter was also very good. Although quite rich the morsels not to be missed are the mushroom croquettes, the mini beef burgers and of course the foie gras!

“Informal restaurant in Altea Old Town.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

A good place for tapas, but you can also get a full meal. It's in the old town of Altea, so parking can be difficult.

“Tasty tapas and hamburger”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

The tapas was great. I especially enjoyed the mini-burgers. Good atmosphere and service. However, the portions are small so be sure to order enough.
