Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

AMAZING from start to finish. We had one of our best meal experiences ever here. Well, well worth giving them a visit if you are serious about good food. Thank you all for a great night. Sean and Carol.

Very interesting meal and a great evening. Difficult to pick out a stand out dish but the foie gras bon bon’s were delicious and Olivia was absolutely correct in suggesting a Sauternes to accompany them. The whole experience was most enjoyable. You really feel you...are being welcomed by genuine people who enjoy what they do and sharing their expertise with you. Something somewhat lacking in the last few years generally in the restaurant business. The concept is that you pick the dishes for a tasting menu and the restaurant splits the dish for you and serves these in the most enjoyable order. Each photo you see in the gallery and in each review is half of each dish. A great meal and a must do if in Alicante.More

Couldn’t fault a single thing about this restaurant. We ate 7 dishes between us, Every one was delicious and beautifully presented, packed with flavour and texture. Whatever you order there’s likely to be a surprise in the way it’s presented that will confound your expectations...whilst delighting your palate. There’s a great wine list and we loved the Cabernet Franc. The service was friendly , informative and attentive without being overly fussy. The restaurant is small and intimate and they let the food do the talking. Just go, you won’t regret it.More

Still the No1 restaurant in Alicante. As the food scene in the city prospers Steki has continued to lead the way with imaginative and exquisite food. The small team are amazing and you are welcomed heartily on arrival and during service they are attentive but...not intrusive. Olivia and Fernando clearly love their restaurant , their food and their customers. A must visit when in Alicante and make sure you book.More

Went with high hopes for dinner. We ordered a selection of 6 dishes. The first 4 came out like a bullet with little time to breathe between them , and the first two were almost completely tasteless - after this we said they were tasteless...and we did not want the rest of the dishes , if of a similar standard. No attempt to rectify things so we paid and left and finished our dinner elsewhere which was excellent. 120 Euro for the privilege of this poor meal, so really would avoid if you are expecting something amazing, or even good, there are plenty of other places in the town with better food.More

The service was impeccable. Right hand shoulder each time. Noticeably so, despite how awkward it might be for the server. Window seat by the road despite booking last minute And the food. Oh god, that food was elite. Truly special quality food, served in a...manner that let you know what they wanted to achieve with each dish. Truly, elite, special quality food and drink. Thank you for having us Steki. €250 well spent. I have eaten at many Michelin guide restaurants and this is deservedly up there. It deserves a star. Love & peace Sam and AmyMore

Had the pleasure of dining here on Easter Sunday evening. We had 6 of the tasting plates and a desert. Every single dish was fabulous. The combination of flavours was to die for. I'm not normally a desert person, but the desert was light, refreshing...and gorgeous. If you're in Alicante make sure to make a reservation hereMore

We where absolutely blown away. Completely unprepared, looking from the outside in, we saw a free table and just walked in. Obviously the dishes were spectacular. If you have the chance and if you can appreciate next level cooking and service: treat yourself ! We...did and we loved it! 2 pax, including a bottle white wine €150,- Very fair price.More

The testing menu we selected was excellent. Various succesful combinations of ingredients, for example the dessert containing tequila ice cream, friendly professional service, and nice environment to enjoy the dinner. Highly recommended!

As restaurant has both a Repsol and Michelin recommendation, please wear appropriate dinner clothing. Restaurant will probably not reject you, but please have a little respect 😊
