“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

I have visited this restaurant 3 times over the last year and I was looking forward to taking few of my friends and family on our recent visit. We booked a table outside in the undercover part and we've shoved right in the corner like sardines, after asking the hostess who showed us to our table I asked her if there was an other tables inside, she was so rude and basically said its this or nothing leaving us with a sour taste in our mouth before we had even started the meal. The food was average, waiter was friendly but the service time was terrible and we all got our main meals at different times. Feel so disappointed with this experience although I didn't call the manager over as I don't want to spoil he evening, I will make it clear that I will not be going back to his restaurant, it's a shame because they could easily accommodated our needs and the hostess could of not made us feel as unwelcome as she did, in essence I feel her attitude was clearly " we do not need your service or hospitality" and there's plenty of other restaurants in the area so to be honest we should have just turned right back out he door then after all the first greeting is the most important!!

“Excellent atmosphere”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This restaurant is located in the old part of Altea and can be found up some fairly steep steps so would not be suitable for those with mobility issues. Once you get inside, the atmosphere is really nice and intimate with very knowledgeable and friendly staff. There are a large number of specials which do not appear on the menu and the staff know all about these in every detail. The staff were very attentive without being imposing on your dining experience. The food itself is very good and full of flavour. On the downside, the presentation of the food could be better and the cost is a little expensive. There are other restaurants in the area with better presentation and lower cost which is why I have only scored the Oustau as being very good. Well worth a visit though, even if it is only to experience the atmosphere.

“Nice restaurant, nice view, good food, but...”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Love the place.. Coming here for years... Mostly because of the entourage and location of the restaurant. Food is not bad at all, don't get me wrong on this... BUT...... If you are a regular in this establishment... The menu are not surprising anymore... We are coming here for over 10 years more or less... And every time when in the area... Will have dinner here once... But every time, sort of disappointed, because no different menu... (even the prices are the same as other years...!!!).
Anyway.. Good atmosphere and food is good and not expensive... And if lucky good view over Altea.
