The food was amazing and the service was at it’s best!! Stayed in Altea for two weeks and me and my family went there twice. Go there if you want a friendly environment and good food.

Top restaurant, if you are in Altea definitely go. Staff very friendly, food amazing, good atmosphere. We found the restaurants in Altea were very hit and miss but this is everything you want when you are away on holiday.
