We visited the restaurant with family twice in March/ April and we loved it! The first time, most of us had steak which was delicious but the second time we pre-ordered the leg of lamb which was amazing! I highly recommend if you visit with a party of at least 4 that you pre-book. Also the mash potato with almonds is great. The restaurant itself has a great family-style atmosphere and is set in the lovely Altea la Viella and the service was excellent.

Very enjoyable experience. You need to book the lamb in advance but it is worth it. Good service and very clean restaurant. Very often full over the weekends. Highly recommended.

We were enjoying dinner here today (party of six people) and had one of the best dinners ever and most certainly the best dinner during our stay here in Altea, Spain.

Pros:

-Setting was STUNNING. Right next to a dozen or so olive trees, on a patio, dinner was served "family style". For starters we had their house salad which was served on a huge tray and thought to be shared among all six of us.
- The food, as you might have imagined, was superb. The lamb shank was tender and juicy and do not forget the OUTSTANDING potato mash. A meal designed for the gods.
- The service was attentive and friendly, done by seasoned professionals.
- Dessert card was another highlight. Crema catalan and brandy.


Prices at this place were very reasonable. Id recommend this restaurant for everyone who likes to dine in a sophisticated, yet comfortable atmosphere. Thumbs up!

I have visited this place several times and it has now become a tradition for the skole family to come to this charming place in Altea la Veilla. It comes acrosse as a genuine, traditional restaurant with "real" people and food. The lamb with it's outstanding potatomash with almonds and garlic is a MUST, and please do not make the mistake of ordering a starter;) I suggest a nice long walk before this fabolous meal. Enjoy! We always do. Note: the lamb has to be ordered one day ahead.

If you prephere lamb for lusj or dinner, you should try too have tradionol babylamb steak, but you have to order one day in advence. Then you get the all most surberb meal, with meat that melts in your mouth with flavours of lamb, herbs and garlic. Its baked in the oven on 120 degrees for 7 hours!!! Try this out!!!!!!
