The four of us had the tapas menu for 27€ p.p. It was delicious!!! The restaurant is a little house, and its very intimate and narrow, but very cosy. I will visit this place again!:)

Food is superb if you like tapas-y dishes. Ditto the lovely little restaurant/ authentic atmos, too. We enjoyed as family and couple and visited twice. Great aperitifs, too. And service is also fab. We love. ❤️

Their food was incredibly delicious and made with excellence! You can find a lot of options on the menu from vegan to some of the best quality meat in altea. I highly recommend it, but make a reservation because it fills up fast!

We have eaten here three times now, and each time have been blown away by at least one of the dishes. The trick here is in the ordering. Some things on offer are ordinary in the sense that you will have seen them on tapas...More

We had several choices from the tapas menu, and thought they were all great. I totally recommend the sea urchin and the pork cheeks; we also had the sardines, which were very interesting and tasty, carpaccio of prawns and meatballs, all washed down with a...More

Food is good, some excellent, some average. Low key place. Service is very poor. Waitors forgot one of the dishes I ordered, and beverages came with dish no 3. The explanations of each dish was uttered halfway back to the kitchen, and when trying to...More
