“Birthday Treat”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Good choice of food on the menu - something for everyone. I think our party had a burger, fish fingers (Child!!), steak and pasta.
Everything was well-priced, and there were several family parties when we got there. Caters for brunch (tostas), a lunchtime tapas and wine, or perfect for a catch up with friends.

“great service standard /nice food”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

came across this place when driving towards our villa
it looked busy so decided to stop off here for soem food
presentation of the food is beautiful
however i wouldn't call it *really* nice
but i wouldn't call it average, but its not worth a 4 star...
service was great though
and i love how they presented the bill in a treasure chest
carbonara was good though
drinks was ok

“ok!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Same many since they started, ok food but far away from good. Salad are ok, but calamares for ex is froozen uhhh. Once i got unwashed salad.

Service its ok, or like the Dutch are in general not so service minded. Just do their job without a smile

Once we ordered a xtra cheese for the salad and they added, 9 euros for that cheese, course was 12 euro.

Decor is ok, open floor deck with chairs.

“Best place for a quick snack in Altea.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you can't be bothered to cook that day, and just want a good quick meal, this is perfect, and excellent value, which is probably why it is usually full. It's opposite to the port, in Altea. There is seating inside and outside. They do the best home made Hamburger and Club Sandwich , but you can also get a good steak tartar. They have a huge range of excellent salads, and many home made deserts.The service is friendly and efficient, and it's great value. In addition to Spanish, the staff speak English, Dutch, and German, so not surprisingly, it has a very cosmopolitan clientele.

“A very very cosy atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Here you can eat great tapas, fish, salads and meat! Or just enjoy a coffee , great views, very nice staff! Some dishes are a little small, like the fish, but just ask for an extra topping vegetables or mushrooms. You must try the salad del mar, it is huge and very tasty!
