There are lots of tapas bars and restaurants around the Costa Blanca, some a lot better than others, and this is one of the better ones! Tucked away on a side street at the back of La Xara an unbelievable find! Nicely laid out for a small restaurant, you choose either tapas or the menu at 19 euros. We had... More

I went to this excellent Tapas restaurant for lunch once again in order to introduce some friends. Everything I have said before stands up again. Service, creative menu, quality of every dish ordered. Read all the reviews and you will see why I keep coming again and again.

I am rolling in 3 more visits so my review of this excellent restaurant is written from the perspective of someone who keeps coming back. We live about 20 miles away from it and have now introduced quite a number of friends who all agree it is a wonderful find. I have no association with the owners so do not... More

Went on recommendation and had to call 4 times before getting availability. Restaurant doesn't open till 8.30 and we were there long before anyone else arrived at least an hour. Menu displayed on Facebook page we were told is an old one but after checking with the chef they gave us it as was fixed price menu. Was a bit... More

We can warmly recommend this small and special place. Booking in advance we recommend specially during high season. One waiter can perfectly speak swissgerman and not the "Chuchichäschtli" style, which was big surprise for us. Really nice place to go.

No dissapointments for the range of food on offer and each time I go I get a new surprise by choosing different things. One exception to this is the choice of 'Banana & Foie Gras' which has become a firm favourite and... More

.My second visit to this establishment. A typically Spanish eating place, casual but with a good standard of interior and service. You may need to book especially st the end of the week and weekend. A wide range of tapes choices either by individual choice or as a set tapes menu. But an odd idiosyncrasy, if one person at your... More
