This restaurant is well worth a visit. If you want a front line table overlooking the marina it is necessary to book. However the views are still great if you're in the second line. The service is prompt and staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a very good choice in menu of the day or a la carte.... More

Just returned from a lunch here. What a lovely location overlooking the bay and harbour. The meal was ok, starters and desserts were good. I probably chose the wrong main - salmon in pastry, prawn sauce - sounded delicious but did not taste as good as it sounded. To quote Mary Berry, the pastry had a 'soggy bottom', parts of... More

Visit this restaurant once a year when staying with friends in Busot near El Campello. Usually lucky and get a view overlooking the marina. This time we went on a Saturday night when it was particularly busy (all tables taken). Got our table with the prime view much to the irritation of a number of other customers who had requested...

Although it's in a phenomenal location overlooking the yachts, the prices here are some of the most reasonable. Food is great: recommend the roast beef with pepper corn sauce. Must do the daily menu as it's 3 courses for about €15! You should make a reservation.

If we have a special occasion like birthday's, exam results, or any other excuse we always make a point in going to the La Cova, 5 years running now always had good food the, menu of the day is always a very good choice and lovely tasty food, even heard from a friend that New Year's Eve is blast.

Fabulous views from the terrace overlooking the sea, marina and the beach beyond. We were greeted on arrival and quickly offered our menus, and a drink whilst we perused the Fayre on offer. The waiter service was excellent, efficient yet unobtrusive - quietly going about their business with as little disturbance as possible. The food we chose - from the... More

We came here (Sept 2016) and were lucky to have a table outside overlooking the bay. We opted for the set menu and the meal was delicious with a very good bottle of house wine. Would love to eat here again.Thank you

I have been so many times to La Cova whenever I go I wonder what it will be like this time. I went one evening last week with my husband, we had not booked but it was early and on a Tuesday so really didn't think we would need to. The waiter eventually took us to a table, all windows... More
