The restaurant now offers several vegan dishes and the ones I have tried so far are very good. We had a surprisingly tasty lunch, helpful staff, great location on the beach in Javea

It's very hard for vegans and vegetarians in Spain, as they love meat! But at Carnaval there are meat free burgers and any other dishes. I had a cous cous salad and ordered an extra side of roast veggies. It was delicious and was so filling that I had to have a take away as well! They also do fresh... More

Highly recommend all the THAI style dishes. Especially the sushi and the sashimi. Also a great selection of curries and Mexican food. Great nightlife and delicious cocktails.

We ate in there last week and had the Sushi. Eating in it's really great sushi and sashimi. We took it away a few days later for lunch and sadly the quality wasn't as good as it was when we ate inside the restaurant. We've been to Carnaval many times over the years and the food is always good, service... More

We have lived in Javea for many years so have tried just about every restaurant however time and time again we go back to Carnaval. The location is fabulous, centrally located on the Arenal Beach, the large picture windows let you enjoy the stunning view to the palm trees, beach and sea. The staff are always friendly, attentive and happy... More

Wonderful view of the ocean, you just keep starring at this mesmerising view. Restaurant is nicely done inside and clean. Had tapas for lunch and very nice to. Service was quite slow considering this establishment was empty. Would like to return again when this monsoon stops. Preferably during the summer months. A definite must visit, even if for just the... More

Fancied some Mexican food so came in to Carnaval as that's what it says it does. The Mexican range on the menu was very small....no burritos!!! I ordered the Vegan burger which was ok, it was just slightly sloppy, very under seasoned and not very warm. Maybe add some seasoning, maybe a bit of spice and change the cooking of... More

Fantastic location and great place to go day or night. Whether it's for a good breakfast, lunch or coffee and watching the world go by it never disappoints! Wonderful bar serving oysters, great cocktails and fab creative menu. We have eaten here regularly over the last year and have never been disappointed. The food is of a very high standard,... More
