Description: David's is on the Caraterra Moraira Calpe Road just before the large Pepe La Sal Suermarket on the left hand side.

Please don't come and expect posh, we do have a very nicely fitted out dining room. We have two outside terraces which can be in the shade or sun, one is covered with fans for the shade. We have never claimed to be anything but this and are a very hardworking family run establishment. We hope you enjoy and get a taste of home.

Gluten free batter for the fish. Lovely outside terrace, also air conditioned restaurant.Eat in or take away.Open from 9.15Am until late. Sunday opening,10-4pm.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Fancied a bit of a change having been here a week so went to David's after reading the reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely, the prices great and the kids menu was ideal for our 3 year old. Only downside was the table smoking behind us while we were eating. We won't think twice about returning before we go back to the UK.

Hi
Thank you for your comments. We are happy you and your family enjoy the food, always nice to know.
We appreciate your comments also regarding the smoking, when the new laws were passed regarding no smoking inside, they allowed people to smoke in a terrace if it had 2 0r 3 open sides. At the moment, as it is so hot, we have to have all the sides up or it would be too hot as the plastic windows attract the sun. Normally people show respect and will stand outside of the eating area if people are still eating and smoke, but there are some that just don't think. All we can do is apologise and hope it didn't spoil it for you too much. If you are thinking of coming again, maybe call us in advance and reserve a table on the extra little terrace outside, then you are not confined to that area.
Once again, thanks for your comments and hope to see you again soon before the end of your holiday.

when ever we go along the calpe road we have to go in , for a fantastic breakfast, or something off the lunch board,great service from the young couple who run it. They are a great team.(their calamaris are the best in moraria really crisp try them they are only 3e for a very good portion)

Hi
Thanks for that and glad you enjoy our food.
I agree, the calamares are good but must stress are not home made, but they are the best we have found that come to us frozen.
It was also nice to meet you today and put a face to a review.
Thank you once again and hope to see you again soon.

“First class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from Moraira. Promised myself I would eat at a different place every meal. But having eaten there once I had to go back. Not the most spectacular place put nice enough. Friendly staff and the down to earth food was first class. Six of us ate there twice and we all had a different meal and everyone loved what they had. Don't visit Moraira without eating here.

Hi
Thanks for that comment and glad you enjoyed the food. No, it's not a top class restaurant, but a nice down to earth friendly place with quality food in which to eat, and are happy you came twice to eat with your family.
We work hard to keep up the food quality and it's nice to be appreciated.
Thanks once again and hope to see you on your next visit.

“Good value fish and chip's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

David's is a great fish and chip shop, the clue is in the name, it's not and I will guess would not proclaim to be a fine dining establishment, its serves good food at a very good price, customer service is always good and its where we always go for fish and chips,not because there's no choice, there is, we choose its because it's good, see ya soon

Hi
Thanks for that and we are glad you enjoy your fish & chips when you visit.
You are right, we don't claim to be a fine dining restaurant, never have done. We are just a fish & chip diner/take away with a difference and large extensive menu. Always working on improving and making it look better.
Hope to see you again soon, say hello when you come in.
Thanks once again, really appreciate it.

Thank you Glynette and thanks for your support.
We know you enjoy our food and nice of you to say so. Think that review has upset a few people judging by the messages we have had. Doesn't seem that long ago that you were here, how time flies.
Looking forward to seeing you again. Let's hope you still enjoy.
Thank you and see you soon.
