The restaurant is slightly off the major pedestrian areas but still an easy walk from the port or old town (and there is plenary of street parking nearby). We went after reading the other TripAdvisor reviews and were very glad we did. Service was very good and the food excellent - especially the lamb dish. I will definitely go back... More

We went back again to this restaurant as it's our favourite place in Javea for a meal. We love the food and the staff who are all family and treat us like family every time we go in

La Cocina is now open for lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday weekly. There is always an excellent menu available, but for me as a solo a huge advantage is that you can buy the main dish, excluding vegetables, which are available separately, ready frozen for 5€ or 6€ each. Whether eating there with friends or at home solo, I... More

We visited on Friday night after ten long months of waiting to taste the pate and steak once more. We were not disappointed, it was as fantastic as it was before. I love this restaurant. I live the decor and the ambience, it really is a fantastic setting for fantastic food.

Thanks to Laurie for making our two visits last week so great. Her service is friendly and warm and the chef knows what he is doing. We could not fault one dish we had and all were cooked to perfection. While the menu is not extensive there is something for everyone and their palate is very good. Please try La... More

We have been visiting La Cocina for the last three years and have always been delighted with our meal. The service is friendly and the menu is varied. They also provide a freezer menu which is excellent.

Having been recommended to this restaurant we thought we would give it a try. We went at lunchtime and had the menu del dia, which includes a glass of wine. The choices available were numerous and offered a good selection. When the food arrived the presentation was first class and the taste was equally as good. We will certainly be... More

We have been regular eaters over the years and Laurie and Ken always strive to better the quality and choice each time we visit. The menu offers a variety of dishes suitable to everyone's palate, and for us it is always difficult to make a choice. The food is excellently prepared and served with a personal touch. Nothing is too... More

Although we arrived quite late, even for Spanish dinner hours, we were very well received. There was no rush to close and the service was excellent and very attentive. The food has good quality ingredients and is very well cooked. Wide variety of dishes and choice, even in the daily menu. Great place to dine.
