Was in D'gust on same night as last reviewer (17/6) and have eaten here many times. I have also eaten in many of the best restaurants around the world. So... I agree that the food and service is good... but there is no doubt in my mind that this is an overpriced establishment. There is also a snobbishness about the place. Many people come along who do not know the place and take its offers at face value so are are (quite reasonably) enticed by the offer of a set price menu i agree with some earlier reviewers who comment that once you are inside you will be handed the Carte and have to ask for the set price menu... then they are made to feel a bit of a cheapskate for doing so (have observed this several times). So come on Miguel... if you don't really want customers to choose this, then don't offer it! Or perhaps do so on a 'quiet night'. We all know this will disappear in late July anyway once you don't need to do it to get people through the door!
The white wine we had last night was about €29 and could be bought at the Bodega in Teulada for about €8. Reasonable? Not really when another good restaurant in town offers the exact same wine for about € 18 (still a good mark up)
In conclusion... the food is classy and the service is excellent... but it's too costly. I will only be going again when our guests are paying!
If I had to choose on the overall, balanced measure of 'value for money' I would go to Le Soleil where you can get the best fillet steaks you could wish for.

The senor welcomed us the night before but we did not go in. Returned the next night and seemed to remember us. Made us welcome, had a la carte, 5 of us 3 adults and 2 teenagers. Again all ordered and were delighted with their choice. They offer little appertiser while you are waiting. Bread with oils is offered in most restaurants, but they offered us mussels petit pastry tart most unusual, then later a lemon sorbet. Being a woman I did not order a dessert but an extra spoon. But the kind waiter and chef gave me a little mini assette of deserts well presented on the house. Nice touch. Then again in Spanish tradition offered the little sweet muscat drink, on the house. Though this was the most expensive meal of the hol it was memorable. All were satisfied.

We ate here by mistake, as our favourite restaurant in Moraira 'Le Soleil' unfortunately closes on a Monday. Do not be fooled by the way this restaurant looks. The service is terrible & the food average at best. You get the feeling of being ripped off for being a tourist. Will never go back to this completely overrated establishment.

We were tempted to try this restaurant as the food looked very good, we ordered the 'menu of the day' and enjoyed the meal, however the problems started when the bill was presented. In summary they had presented a sorbet and a desert wine without being ordered and the bill ended up about 40 euros more than it should. I would avoid this restaurant at all costs,our comments are the same as another diner. I got the feeling that they were just trying to rip off the tourists - AVOID and walk a few yards down to Le Soleil and have a super meal served by superb staff at a great price.

An interesting and reasonably priced menu del dia lures you in but is then not offered once you are inside. Waiter appeared to not understand that we wanted the fixed price menu so we ended up ordering a la carte. Mostly good but there is better to be had in Moraira at a more reasonable price. Overall we felt deceived, and won't be going back, no tip left - if they had offered us the menu del dia I'd have left a tip and thought about a return visit.
