What a great discovery! What great service!
Having read a vast number of wonderful reviews about this restaurant, as we were staying very close by in a rented apartment, we thought we'd look in there. We wondered about the last review, saying the place was terrible, since all other reviews were so enthusiastic. We went on a Saturday night, at 9.30pm, a little early for true Alicante folk, but by 9.45pm, the place was nearly full. We were very warmly greeted by one of the waiters who, we discovered whilst chatting to him later, was a film director! He explained that the usual chef was in Argentina, but the owners managed to get a temporary chef who has won several awards for his cuisine. We need not have worried - the various dishes were presented beautifully and gave us truly excellent taste sensations! Our waiter did not give us a wine list, but instead very helpfully offered us a taste of a small selection of wines, in particular Riojas, which he thought we might enjoy. He thought the less expensive one was the better - and we agreed. So he just poured us a glass, and if we wanted more, it got topped up! How refreshing not to be sold an entire bottle of expensive wine which cannot be tasted prior to ordering - this being the usual scenario in all restaurants as my many readers well know.
I shan't recommend any particular dish, as these are changed weekly, save to say that whatever is ordered in this restaurant will be of the highest, professionally prepared level. We were very satisfied, and with a final bill of Euros 40 (we shared 3 dishes) we intend to make this restaurant our favorite local whilst here in Alicante. Well done chef, and thank you to the waiters! Five stars from us!
