In a small street, behind the church of San Nicolas, you can find this very fine restaurant. You can choose several menus for very democratic prices. The diner menu is an evening filling experience, a star restaurant worthy! The waiters are very professional and the food is very tasteful. For 24€ you have 6 different courses! If you have a...

We intended to have our last dinner in Alicante in this restaurant and therefore booked two days earlier. Booking is essential as you are most unlikely to get a table if you walk in off the street. At the back of the cathedral it is easy to locate. Be advised that you should arrive no earlier than 20.30hrs or otherwise... More

We visited on my birthday which coincides with St Valentine's day. We both opted for the five course set menu. It was absolutely fantastic. I still dream about the meal. You have to book. I would definitely go again whenever I'm in Alicante. I cannot fault anything. The meal was beautiful, the service was excellent but discreet and the ambience... More

Absolutely a fantastic experience. In a cosy atmosphere and very well served we had the perfect dinner with a very nice Valencian white wine and a whole bottle of 100 % Monastrell red wine "Pasion" - perfect choices to a dinner of very high standards. Huge very well spiced prawns, passion fruit sorbet, pork tenderloin, and chocolate cake/creme brullee with... More

We chose the 20 euro five course menu, and every course was a delight. Small and intimate, lovely surroundings, and very friendly and helpful staff. The... More
