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.

What a fabulous place to go for a pre Christmas feast, wonderful tasty starters and a traditional Christmas lunch with Cliff's very best home made Christmas pudding. Such a delightful atmosphere with such friendly service.

We choose the appetizer Lagostinos and the main meal Curry de camboyano. Both had a perfect taste and were nicely served. The employees remained exceptionally customer-friendly, despite the crowds. Clearly noticeable that it is an excellent family restaurant. We will be back in the coming...weeks.More

This place is a hidden gem, I was highly recommended which was how I knew about it. As a solo traveller, I saved it for my last evening. However, I wish I’d come sooner, as this needs more than one visit. The food is incredible,...everything is so fresh & tasty. The staff go above and beyond to explain the dishes & recommend them. This is my second visit to Javea & this is by far my favourite restaurant. Thank you for making my last evening so wonderful 🤍More

Gorgeous food with lovely flavors and taste. Very friendly and welcoming staff and nice atmosphere outdoors on the patio. We had our best meal so far in Javea and would absolutely recommend this place.

We went to this restaurant as our family needed Vegan & Gluten Free options which sometimes means we’re limited to where we can go out to eat in Javea. It really didn’t disappoint. The service was perfect and they were so friendly and accommodating. The...food was absolutely delicious and everyone was happy ! Can’t wait to go back. Such a lovely choice of menu too. It’s great there’s a parking lot opposite too as sometimes parking can be an issue when it’s so busy in Javea!More

This really is a good find (not one you would easily stumble across if in the port area of Javea) and highly recommended. Beautiful, tasty and well presented food, great service and excellent value. All in all, faultless

We went here for the first time and thought it was excellent. Amongst the best restaurants in Javea we thought. We both had bream and that was perfectly cooked. The various starters were great too and staff is very professional and friendly.

Really pretty place We regularly come to Xabia and never quite made it here until this year. Really friendly, chatty British owners. The menu is a perfect size with a good choice of meals but not so many as to be overwhelming. The food is...really good with a leaning towards a British palate so whilst you may not get the full on Spanish experience if you choose this restaurant, you won’t be disappointed. We would definitely return here.More

It was lovely to be welcomed (and remembered) by Laurie. The food was excellent as usual, with more of an eastern slant, which is good for me but my husband - though loving the ambiance - found it more difficult to choose something plain. I...can't understand anyone who doesn't appreciate the fine cooking and presentation that Cliff achieves. So glad they survived the long closedownMore

Although this restaurant is not in a prime location - set back from the port area on the road to old town - it is consistently one of the best around. No matter how short your stay give it a try. The menu is always...interesting with twists of Indonesian, North Africa, Mexican, Thai etc given to meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. Even the traditional dishes such as double baked cheese soufflé or beef and Rioja pie are excellent. I have never spoken to Cliff, the chef, but his ability to come up with superb combinations of flavours is brilliant. One of those rare restaurants where you want to try just about everything on the menu, and reasonably priced too.More

Probably the worst restaurant we have ever been. The service was nice, but the food was just terrible: low quality ingredients with too much bad tasting sauces. We cannot understand the good reviews. However, it was our mistake: with all the amazing local restaurants in...the area, we decided to try the one owned by English people and with an international cuisine menu. Lesson learned.More
