The venue is lovely and interesting. Private dining in a beautiful setting. The food is preordered, but dissaponting. We had looked forward to this place, but felt let down with the food, it was bland and not really very good value.

This is such an unusual offering. The cave dining room is quaint in the extreme, but very well designed. A comfortable private dining table for just six people. Fabulous Moroccan style food. The wines are OK, if not outstanding. Delicious desserts. I would choose a...More

Sorry for delay, only just seen this. As you would be the only table, it's really up to you. But I would suggest smart/casual is fine. Also layers, as it can be cool inside, although they do provide heating.

A unique bed and breakfast experience in Benidoleig, near Denia, Valencia, Spain. This unusual guesthouse, built in the shape of a guitar by Spanish artist and sculptor, Eladio Calleja, has its own natural cave where our tapas breakfast is served. The B&B accommodation and facilities are exclusively for two guests, making it a perfect honeymoon, romantic getaway, peaceful holiday, or complimentary healthcare retreat. We are ideally situated beside the tourist attraction – Cuevas de las Calaveras (Cave of Skulls) at the foot of the mountains, overlooking the orange groves, and a short stroll to the pretty village of Benidoleig with views of the Marina Alta and the sea.
