We visited for breakfast as we were staying in the hotel close by. It was okay. Not bad but nothing special. What we were most disappointed about was that the waitress or owner was so unfriendly. She almost didn't speak to us at all and...More

Nice place to go to. Nice location near the sea. Free tapas with a beer or a coke that are quite good.

Decided to stop and have a drink not knowing what it would be like. We opted for a beer and a red wine with meatballs, sardines and patatas bravas. The red wine was excellent as was the food. Could definitely recommend.

Last week I went first just for a drink and the a few days later for lunch. I assume that the couple are the owners and you feel welcome and well attended. The food is fresh and homemade - not de-frozen. Prices very reasonable.

Visited here a number of times whilst staying in Altea. Its a real gem - friendly, authentically Spanish, popular with locals, ex-pats and holidaymakers. Good food, friendly service & inexpensive. Best seats either on the pavement or at the stools with barrel tables near the...More

Small almost-beach-bar. Located in first line of lovely village of Altea, serving mostly drinks and nice tapas. Have Not tried the new restaurant style menu, but small bits and bites are (mostly) worth to return.
