The taster menu at 40€ is worth every penny, nibbles on arrival, free drink on arrival, a great sharing starter platter with... More

Wonderfull place, in a little corner in magical Altea. A cosy restaurant with very good service in many different languages. As amuse bouche a pumpkin soupe with cinnamon and ham-bread role. I ate slowcooked piglet in dijon mustard sauce. The taste, structure and serving of the food was amazing. This is a very strong five star for a good price.... More

The food is excellent - very well presentation and taste and all those little attention to detail that you might not notice. I won't say it is with good service because this... More

Excellent restaurant with extremely helpful staff. All dishes were visually delightful with superb flavours. On the quieter side of the mount although there is an open air auditorium at the back which holds events on occasion. Altea offers fantastically high standards of culinary expertise and this restaurant will certainly be one we'll return to on each visit as it was... More

Have been here on a number of occasions and never fails to impress. The food quality and presentation is first class. This time on the set menu they had a special fish locally called Negra which was superb. Tasted as good as Halibut and would certainly have it again. A La Carte menu is also excellent. The 2 waitresses work... More
