I agree with Rijko and plagiarise his review as I was disappointed that this last remnant of the old Altea seafront succumbed. This place was very special and had a huge history just serving mussels and sardines mainly (and beans, with a bucket by your table for the shells). It has expanded as it was handed down the family chain... More

We had Fried Fish from the Bay which turned out to be deep-fried sardines and similar with bones - quite poor for such a dining restaurant. inappropriate 12 .- without sides ! a few grilled vegetables as side dish 12.50 ! We left still hungry with stomach ache and would better have had take away somewhere...

This restaurant is a typically Spanish establishment, which is good to see. The waiter (who was very friendly) took our drinks' order. Unfortunately, although the wine arrived, we needed to ask again, quite some time later, for the water we'd also ordered, initially. The cod in a light batter, came with a minuscule amount of ratatouille-like vegetables. Although the presentation... More

We went to watch the fireworks and happened upon this little gem of a restaurant, the food and service were exceptional! and not overly priced either.

We've had dinner at El Bodegon de Pepe twice in a few days. We really enjoyed it both times. Service is really nice and efficient. The location is great. Food is absolutely delicious. The menu is small in size, which is generally a good sign. Everything is cooked from fresh ingredients sourced from local providers (all the way to French... More

This place was very special and had a huge history just serving mussels and sardines mainly. I understand that this had a limited market so the menu has expanded as it was handed down the family chain. However, sadly it has lost its uniqueness and now has much competition. :(

This restaurant has been open for a long time, serves great food with many dishes typically Spanish and it is well worth a visit. Ask for the menu del dia and you won't be disappointed.

This place has a good Spanish feel inside, but initial service is slow (staff more interested in having a beer and a smoke outside). I wanted good fish, ignored the fact that the place was empty (compared to nearby choices) and put my faith in what appeared to be the most Spanish restaurant on the row. Big mistake, the mixed...
