“Great find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Hidden away behind the Cathedral, this place is a rose among the plethora of Alicante's tourist traps.

You are drawn to the impossibly underpriced 16 euro tasting menu. So cheap you wonder if it is any good. Well it was a mixed batch: the low was a very strange tasting parmesan based cake-thing; the high was a beautiful sea bass on some perfectly cooked vegetables. My rioja was superb and eyebrow raisingly cheap, so overall I came away thinking that on the whole the meal was excellent value for money.

The place was packed, and my only criticism was that the staff were really challenged. While the food always came out in perfect condition, the seven courses took 3 hours to get through which was a bit too long.

The staff were truly friendly, explained each course and on that basis I rate the overall experience 5 stars.

Brilliant family run restaurant. Great 5 course taster menu for 21 euros.

Would recommend if you're in Alicante. It's a real fine dining experience.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We first went to this restaurant last year and as we were going to Alicante with friends we decided to book a table again. The food is excellent and one of our friends can only eat gluten free foods. She mentioned this and when they brought the bread rolls for us they provided her with gluten free bread, similarly with the desert with no fuss, bearing in mind that she had not asked for this simply mentioned it in case anything she ordered was not gluten free. We all enjoyed our meal, it is excellend value and there is no rush, you can just enjoy your meal in your own time. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The food was superb, the wine was great and the service was top notch. Above all it was great value for money.

The restaurant is located behind the cathederal. There are various set menus to choose from. I had the entry level menu and my husband had the more expensive option with Tuna tartar. Everything was delicious. This is a fine dining place. Several very special and unique courses. It's a quality not quantity type place.
